New Morisset facility set to be a win for local miners
Local underground services provider, UGM, opens the doors on its new purpose built Diesel and Electrical workshop facility in Morisset today.
UGM forms part of the Bis group, one of Australia’s most innovative resources logistics companies who has been operating in the region since 1915. The new Morisset facility was strategically selected for its proximity to the region’s key mining operators, providing enhanced services for customers.
Building on UGM’s existing underground repair, overhaul, field service and spare parts services, the western Lake Macquarie facility was also designed to support UGM to deliver new services to a broader customer set.
Commenting on the relocation to Morisset, Bis Underground Services General Manager Mark Doyle said the move will bolster UGM’s diesel and electrical capacity and provide faster expert service for its underground mining and civil customers.
“The Morisset location provides proximity to local mining operations and the opportunity to design a space with a much larger footprint, to support our growth plans.
“The new facility is three times larger, enabling UGM to offer a broader range of niche customer solutions. One of these is growing our tunnelling infrastructure capabilities, including our licenced Mitsui road header operations, which services major civil underground projects throughout the Eastern seaboard,” Doyle said.
