Australian Pump had the pleasure of hosting Baulkham Hills State Member of Parliament, Police and Emergency Minister, David Elliot this month. The Minister was surprised to find a 2½ acre pump factory nestled in the middle of the busy Victoria Park complex at Norwest.
Aussie Pumps’ Operations Manager, Hamish Lorenz said: “It was a great opportunity for us to show the progress we’ve made over the last 25 years in building world class products in firefighting pumps, high pressure water blasters and a whole lot more”.
As the Minister left the premises, he made the comment, “You would never guess what’s going on behind the front office building until you actually get to see the factory and warehouse facilities at Aussie Pumps”.
Hamish Lorenz explained how the company had responded to both the bushfire crisis and corona pandemic with increased production of fire pumps and cleaning equipment.
He also explained to the Minister the company’s plans to further expand manufacturing capacity at the site.in the near future.
Mr Elliot was impressed that the Hills Shire still had a large manufacturing company employing local people.
“Great to hear of their success and growth over 25 years,” he said.
