Designed for Maximum Efficiency

Norweld’s new Brendale facility employs a one-piece flow production method that streamlines manufacturing processes. This innovative approach ensures that each item progresses seamlessly through all production stages, reducing waste and enhancing overall efficiency. It aligns perfectly with Norweld’s commitment to lean manufacturing principles and operational excellence.

Steve Umback, Managing Director Norweld, said “Our new facility enables us to get products to market quicker, service our customers better and build product where it is getting used. It makes sense for us to spread our wings and open a few manufacturing facilities around Australia.” 


Modern Office and Showroom

Adjacent to the manufacturing floor, Norweld has established a state-of-the-art office and showroom that goes beyond mere workspace. This dynamic environment is tailored to nurture creativity, innovation, and collaboration. It will serve as the central hub for our marketing, sales, and design teams, fostering synergistic integration between these pivotal departments.


Cutting-Edge Machinery

The heart of the Brendale facility beats with cutting-edge machinery, including:

  • Multicam CNC Router 1500 x 3000: Designed for high-speed and high-torque routing, this machine is pivotal for precision cutting tasks.
  • LVD CNC PPED-7 165/30 Press Brake: This advanced press brake provides superior bending capabilities, enabling a wide range of sheet metal forming tasks.
  • Fronius Pulse Mig Welders: Known for their reliability and precision, these welders are instrumental in achieving Norweld’s signature high-quality welding.
  • Miller Pulse Tig Welders: These welders deliver high-quality, precision TIG welding, ensuring the durability and strength for which Norweld’s products are renowned.

“The new facility is amazing! Passion has been key to their success. You’ve got to love it to have the success they do. It’s their commitment to quality, people walk straight up to a Norweld build, look at the welds, shake the sideboards, it’s pretty obvious that they’re well designed. Every single component has attention to detail. Norweld stands out!” said Stephen Burke, True North Adventures
