Weston Animal Nutrition (WAN) operates three feed mills across Australia and New Zealand as part of Mauri, a Division of George Weston Foods (GWF). Today GWF is one of Australia and New Zealand’s largest food manufacturers employing over 6,000 people across 58 sites.
This project is an important development, establishing a new stockfeed mill in Hope Valley, Western Australia. The project involves the design, construction and commissioning of a feed mill capable of processing over 300,000 tonnes of WA grain per annum.
Wiley has been contracted as the Principal Contractor to design and construct the new facility. Brandon Miller, Chief Strategy Officer at Wiley said, “We’re very excited to be engaged in this project and the ongoing opportunity it provides our business. We’re really pleased to be working with WAN to help deliver this world class facility.”
Western Animal Nutrition General Manager, Ian Fairbairn added, “This facility will bring modern feed production capability to W.A. With increased capacity and manufacturing flexibility the new feed mill allows Weston Animal Nutrition to service our customers with high-quality animal nutrition solutions well into the future. The Western Australian Government supports the new feed mill as a key part of expanding opportunities for Western Australian agriculture into the future”.
Construction is underway on the Hope Valley site and the facility will be operational midway through 2022.
