Grand Opening of John F Pressler Centre
Thursday, 16th March Glenn Butcher, Assistant Minister for Transport & Infrastructure officially opened our John F Pressler Site at Acacia Ridge in a grand opening attended by more than 300 guests.
The site consolidates four locations spread out over the Rocklea and broader Brisbane area into one substantial complex over more than 26,000 square metres that houses our Corporate administration, Brisbane transport function including cold storage, warehousing for our Rural and Transport customers and, for our rural business, a new showroom.
The warehouse is 5,000 square metres, including more than 4,000 square metres of refrigerated storage for 1,000 chilled pallets and 2,300 frozen pallets.
The rural distribution centre is almost as big again, with 3,000 racked pallet spaces.
There are more than 400 square metres of wash bays for our automated truck wash, eight fuel dispensers and more than 200 square metres for drivers’ quarters including 12 bunk rooms, lounge and kitchen.
Strategically, this site underpins the future of Lindsay Australia by enabling far more efficient operations of our three divisions, Lindsay Transport, Lindsay Rural and Lindsay Fresh Logistics and an expansion in frozen and chilled freight and storage.
We want to thank those that came out to celebrate on the day.
