Tennyson Mills’ $43 Million Upgrade

Allied Mills will be celebrating the official opening of their newly expanded facility at Tennyson (QLD) on Thursday 31 October 2013.  The site will be opened by The Hon. Campbell Newman, Premier of Queensland at midday.

The Tennyson facility has been substantially upgraded to now feature a new hard wheat flour mill, new dry mixing facilities and a larger warehouse; all of which house the world’s most leading edge equipment and processes in food manufacturing.  The official opening of the new mill and mix plant now re-establishes Allied Mills’ production capacity in Queensland for supply to Queensland consumers.

Allied Mills’ Managing Director Joseph Di Leo stated, “We are thrilled our $43 million investment will maximise our service and efficiency standard for our Queensland customers and support the local economy and job market.  The Tennyson site ensures the manufacture of ingredients for iconic household brands that Australian families have come to trust in, and the delivery of superior product quality and consistency every time.”

The facility was built to replace the flour milling and mixing capability lost in the 2011 Queensland floods that extensively damaged Allied Mills’ Toowoomba milling and mixing plant.  Joseph Di Leo stated “This building project was essential for Allied Mills to respond to the Toowoomba flood devastation that left the Toowoomba site incapable of continuing to service our customers.  We look forward to now having full capability to service all Allied Mills’ Queensland customers directly from the Tennyson site and no longer requiring product supply extended from our interstate facilities.  Our products are now 100% made in Queensland for Queensland customers.”

Joseph Di Leo stated, “The design and leading edge technology ensures the highest food safety standards, the most energy efficient construction and advanced milling technology the world has ever seen.  We at Allied Mills are committed to being at the forefront in flour milling and mixing innovation and what we have done here at Tennyson is testament to this commitment.”
