BevChain announces two new Australian offices

Beverage distribution specialist, BevChain, has announced two new logistics facilities in Western Australia and Victoria.

Construction of a new 35,000-square-metre BevChain Perth facility is underway to serve increasing demand in Western Australia.

The state-of-the-art warehouse design will see BevChain consolidate its current Canning Vale and Kewdale operations into one site, with the addition of important temperature-controlled storage.

The new warehouse is expected to be fully operational by April 2023.

In addition, BevChain will also be building a new 70,000 square-metre facility in Laverton, Victoria, to replace its existing Somerton site.

Linfox President BevChain, Misha Shliapnikoff, said the Victorian facility will provide customers with a variety of benefits.

“Strategically positioned in the industrial hub of Melbourne’s west, the large site will service major customers with modern warehouse technology, temperature-controlled storage and ample space for new and exciting brands and products,” he said. “In line with Linfox’s Leading the Way 2025 business strategy, this considerable investment supports Linfox’s exciting growth plans and its commitment to the BevChain business.”

Both sites are seeking a ‘5 Star Green Star’ rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, in accordance with Linfox’s commitment to act sustainably. Environmental credentials include solar generation and electric vehicle charging.
