The new facility was officially opened by John Inkster, Managing Director of the AxFlow Oceania Group, and Ole Weiner.

The site, located at 228 Atlantic Drive in Keysborough, provides a much larger and improved space that is around triple the size of its previous Melbourne facility.

At over 5,500m², the additional space will hold some of the latest technology, enabling Brown Brothers Engineers to design, build and test pumps and equipment to recognised standards.

Some of the key capabilities of the new site include:

  • 22m-deep pump test well interconnected to a 2.6m-deep test tank holding approximately 34,000 litres of water capable of testing pumps in excess of 250kW and flows to 300L/s
  • Dedicated diesel driven test bay
  • Overhead crane with five tonne lifting capacity

With business continuing to expand, the larger size and additional space of this purpose-built facility will mean Brown Brothers Engineers has greater capacity to deliver the best in pumping products, solutions and customer service.

During the proceedings, John Inkster thanked the company’s customers for the continued support and commitment, saying, “without them this facility would not have been possible”.

Joining Brown Brothers Engineers on the new Keysborough site, are fellow AxFlow Group members Kelair Pumps Australia (Victoria division), and GT Water Technologies.
