WESTRAC have broken ground on their new purpose built facility in south-west Sydney.
Sited at AMP Capital’s Crossroads Logistics Centre in Casula, near Liverpool, the development will occupy nearly 24,000 square metres.
The facility will include a warehouse, workshop and regional office for WesTrac NSW/ACT and construction is expected to be completed mid-2018, said the WesTrac announcement.
WesTrac signed a long-term lease with AMP Capital at Crossroads Logistics Centre in March 2017.
WesTrac NSW/ACT, chief executive, Greg Graham said the location choice followed an extensive study of the proposed construction activity for the next ten years.
“It was apparent that the City of Liverpool, and the Crossroads Logistics Centre in particular, was the perfect choice to continue to grow the WesTrac Caterpillar business.”
“The location and surrounding facilities places WesTrac in the perfect position to serve construction customers in an efficient and timely manner,” he said.
WesTrac is one of Caterpillar’s largest authorised dealers
AMP Capital, managing director for office and industrial, Luke Briscoe said the location was a perfect fit for WesTrac.
“Crossroads offers a strategic location for companies such as WesTrac.”
“It’s located in the growth corridor of south-west Sydney, offers access to arterial road and transport infrastructure as well as retail and lifestyle amenities for workers.
“Our strategy is to work with our industrial tenants, such as WesTrac, to develop a site that meets their needs and we’re delighted that construction is now underway on this development,” he said.
Mayor of Liverpool, Wendy Waller was welcomed the WesTrac move.
“I congratulate AMP Capital and WesTrac on making the move to Liverpool.”
“We welcome the arrival of such distinguished businesses and the new jobs and economic stimulus they bring with them.
“Liverpool is already home to more than 14,000 businesses and Council understands how crucial our businesses are to the success of our economy and our community,” she said.
