Event Details

Overview:

Have you ever wondered where the machinery that builds our infrastructure and runs our mines comes from? In November 2012, Hitachi opened a world class facility in Brisbane to cater to these industries.

Located in Wacol, this facility is capable of assembling the 360 tonne Hitachi Electric Mining Dump Truck, as well as a host of other construction and mining equipment and components. It combines the latest industry technologies as well as environmentally-friendly features designed to ensure long-term sustainability of the land and surrounding natural landscape.
