366 Days of 2012, Day 203 - Factory TruCoat

As an engineer with a career in manufacturing I'm not ashamed to admit, I love factories.

Some time back we watched the beginning of new creation at the end of Morphett Road near the back of the Adelaide airport. Over several months we observed a building landscape transform into a state of the art industrial premises.

For some months more we guessed what this new facility would be used for. It was clearly a manufacturing premises but while the internal fit-out progressed we just had to guess.

Finally when the signage was put in place we learned that this new building is the the new home of Tru-Coat, the industrial coatings division of Manuele Engineers, a South Australian family business.

I was hoping for this high tech looking building to be some high tech electronics or aerospace type manufacturing facility. Alas its just a paint-shop. A state of the art, high tech paint-shop! Regardless, it is great to see confidence in the future of South Australian manufacturing!
