Frosty Boy announces relocation to brand new cutting-edge facilities in Yatala to spread the ‘Pure Happiness’ even further
Frosty Boy has announced the 17th of March 2014 as the date it will relocate to its new purpose-built, cutting-edge facilities at 1 Dixon Street, Yatala, Queensland.
Frosty Boy Australia is excited to announce the realisation of one of its most ambitious plans to date, with the company set to relocate operations to its brand new state-of-the-art facility and plant in Yatala, Queensland, next month. This strategic move is being undertaken in response to an increased demand for Frosty Boy products, mainly as a result of the rapidly expanding frozen yoghurt industry and the high growth in demand for quality dairy products in Asia.
The new facilities include an enlarged production plant that will enable the company to significantly increase its production capacity to match its plans for future growth, representing an increase in production output of more-than-double the current capacity. The 5,500 square-metre production plant will boast two state-of-the-art production lines, expanded facilities for research and development and a larger laboratory for product development and quality testing.
The most significant improvements are: brand new world-class production equipment, the utilisation of robotic technology in the packaging and labelling lines, a layout which facilitates the optimisation of productivity and quality assurance, and larger container handling facilities. Computer controlled batching, blending and filling processes deliver precise and accurate results. Safety provisions include an in-line rare earth metal magnet, 3mm sifter, in-line check weigher and X-ray inspection of every sachet.
Frosty Boy, 100% Australian made and owned, has reinforced its strong commitment to producing in Australia with this multi-million dollar investment. The new premises were designed and built by Australian companies, sending a clear signal of its continued investment in the local economy.
‘This move will shape the next chapter in Frosty Boy’s history’, says Dirk Pretorius, CEO. The new facilities will translate into great benefits for our customers. Frosty Boy will be able to support continued growth in existing and new markets, adding to the 35 countries where Frosty Boy’s products are already sold. More packaging presentation options are another of the many benefits that will flow from this move.
Frosty Boy has meticulously planned all of the details required for a smooth transfer of production from the existing factory to the new facilities in Yatala. As a strategic business partner to many, Frosty will work cooperatively with its customers, suppliers, employees and other stakeholders to ensure they are kept fully informed throughout the moving process, keeping any disruptions to an absolute minimum.
