Congratulations to our client and Crookes’ Queensland team on this incredible project milestone.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk joined Coles Group Chairman James Graham and CEO Steven Cain for the official opening their first Automated Distribution Centres (ADC) in Redbank, Queensland. This development represents significant investment in the latest retail and supply chain technology available globally.
This milestone also marks the completion of our Queensland team’s inaugural project – a monumental moment we are delighted to celebrate.
At 66,000m2, the distribution centre is the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and will service 219 supermarkets across Coles and Northern New South Wales.
Sustainability was top-of-mind when designing the Redbank facility, with the project team leveraging low energy LED lighting, solar power generation and a 180,000-litre rainwater storage capacity to reduce onsite water usage.
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk joined Coles Group Chairman James Graham and CEO Steven Cain to officially open the site. Coles CEO Steven Cain said today is one of the most significant moments since Coles was founded in 1914 and five years in the making.
“This technology is not only a first for Australia, but also a win for the state of Queensland. As we’ve seen during the pandemic and natural disasters, resilient supply chains are essential when it comes to feeding our nation and providing Australians with essential supplies,” Prime Minster Albanese said.
Well done to everyone involved in this sector-leading project.
