Our Partner Aldi opens the doors to a new store in Bell Park (VIC). Aldi has set on expanding its presence in Geelong in recent years and the Bell Park store is the ninth in the region. Aldi also has stores at Newcomb, Geelong West, Corio, Belmont, Grovedale, Highton, Leopold, and Drysdale.

Also this store displays the new format using our energy-efficient chest freezers and top freezers which utilise HC refrigerants and VSD compressor control. The main refrigeration plant operates with an Epta Pack utilising CO2 R744 (GWP=1) and R134a (for the medium temperature display cases). The Sub Critical Hybrid CO2 / R134a design delivers a reduction in the carbon footprint of the refrigeration plant. Other energy saving initiatives within the plant design are electronic expansion valves, variable speed drives on condenser fans and capacity control for compressors. The store manager can also supervise the case temperatures and plant operation via a centralised Danfoss supervisory control panel.

“Each of these stores will follow our new format, with clearer signage, redesigned shelving and expanded wooden produce bays, energy efficient LED lighting and extended chillers” an Aldi spokesperson said. “This will allow for a more pleasant and efficient shopping experience, while also catering for an expanded range across our fresh meat, produce and health categories. The new format won’t lead to higher prices.”

Our SA Installation Department have been under the pump to ensure completion dates are maintained for our customer Foodland Nuriootpa (SA), a massive store that opened its doors to the public yesterday in the Barossa Valley. The store was flooded with shoppers from the minute the doors opened and for the rest of the day.

The layout of the store looks fantastic: we installed more than 36 mt of Canova deli case, more than 40 mt of Stone semi-vertical chillers, more than 90 mt of Rock and Rock Eco multi-deck chillers, more than 112 mt of Aurora freezer island, all by our exclusive partner Epta Group.

Our cases look great and temperatures are performing excellent considering the day before the case, coolrooms and freezer room doors where constantly left open as the staff were busily trying to fill the cases and rooms with product for the next day’s opening.

Our new Foodland Nuriootpa supermarket is adjacent to the current shopping centre (established in 1944) and it is 20% larger than the previous Foodland. The new supermarket is part of a 10-year strategic plan which will ensure the 70-year-old Co-op remains at the heart of Barossa retailing. It will offer a more contemporary shopping experience with exciting new deli, fresh fruit and veg and meat/seafood outlets and customer friendly market style lay-out.

“The new building will help improve our environmental footprint”, Co-op chairman Phillip Schmaal said “Over the last three years the Board and management team have been undertaking customer market research, and from this we know that our 17,000 members want more shopping choice, particularly groceries and fresh food, but also in casual food and beverage dining as well as speciality shopping”.

This development is something independent retailing can be very proud of. A big thank you to all who participated in making this project a success!

A new life for a piece of our history

A new life for a piece of our history

Our Perth Service Department carried out the restoration and preservation of an old compressor which is 1 of 84 that our Company produced in 1942-1943.

There was an old belt drive Baker compressor in the workshop in pieces and collecting dust from our move from Claremont over 25 years ago. We decided to carry out preserving this piece of our history.

We gathered all parts and carried out reassembly only to find a number of components missing (pistons and conrods) so went about having these missing parts machined up so the restoration could be completed. We also converted old three phase motor to single phase so the unit, once assembled, could be operated in the showroom. Sand blasting of all the old parts, spray painting and re-assembly of all components made it into a fully operational unit. It was displayed at Fine Food in Sydney this year.
