Hansen Yuncken is currently constructing the circa $100m contract by Hilton Foods Australia, for their new meat processing and distribution centre in Heathwood.
The facility is a temperature controlled environment of multiple chambers inclusive of mezzanine floors carrying various levels of automated processing and storage equipment. It will be very similar in design and performance aspects as their recently completed VIC facility but with a larger footprint and additional processing capability.
The 25,000sqm facility, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of international specialist retail meat packing company the Hilton Food Group, will also be broadly split into processing, distribution and administration areas.
Hilton will invest a significant sum into automation plant, racking and equipment within the warehouse and will start supplying Woolworths stores in January 2020 with a range of beef, lamb, pork and added value products.
