VivoPower International PLC (NASDAQ: VVPR) (“VivoPower,” the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary in Australia, Kenshaw Electrical Pty Limited (“Kenshaw”), has completed a move to a new headquarters and workshop facility to support the business’s expanding operations.
Located in Cardiff, New South Wales, the new 10,000 square meter (108,000 square feet) facility provides 2,763 square meters (29,740 square feet) of workshop and office space, an 85% increase over Kenshaw’s previous location. The expansive, modern building features three overhead cranes and a 1,000 ampere power supply to accommodate more and larger critical power services projects for Kenshaw’s growing client base, including customers in the data center, mining and resources, health care, infrastructure, and manufacturing industries.
Adam Malcolm, General Manager of Kenshaw, said: “The past few years have been a time of exciting growth and transformation for Kenshaw, albeit punctuated by the disruptions from COVID-19 lockdowns especially over the last 12 months. This relocation will enhance our business capabilities and service capacity, ensuring Kenshaw’s existing and new clients’ expectations are not only met, but exceeded. As Australia’s international and domestic borders reopen, we expect strong industry tailwinds to resume with a rebound in activity in the year ahead. I look forward to continuing to develop and expand our business in Kenshaw’s new home.”
