Background

Keech is one of Australia’s leading casting and engineering design companies. The Keech foundries offer development, design, molding, heat treatment and finishing of steel, SG castings and high alloy for engineering requirements. Keech provides castings and products for mining, excavation, earth moving, construction and agricultural industries.

Business Challenge

Keech needed to develop a site plan for their Bendigo Production Facility to cover the next five (5) years of capital purchases. This required a review of the current production facility and a design for the new plant layout. The new plant layout needed to consider all proposed equipment purchases over the next five years, with a focus on improved efficiency and low cost production, safety in the working environment and reduced labour requirements.

Results

CMC prepared a detailed 5 Year Plan with a number of alternative options and costings, cognisant of the new equipment planned and of the timescale. CMC’s consultant also provided an assessment of sites production metrics flow and cycle volumes for each production zone.

"The consultants that CMC provide are of the highest calibre and we are very pleased with the quality of their work and the results they achieved. Our project would not have been as successful without CMC’s involvement."
