AMTIL recently completed the relocation of its headquarters to a brand new office building in Bayswater, in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.

AMTIL’s new premises is located across two levels and 300 sqm in a newly-built complex in Bayswater, right in the heart of one of Melbourne’s key manufacturing heartlands. The office has been fitted out with a bright, modern design, with an emphasis on promoting staff interaction and collaboration. The office area includes height-adjustable desks and large screen monitors for all members of the team, to support productivity and staff wellbeing.

AMTIL had been based at its old premises in nearby Wantirna for more than a decade, and it had served the organisation well over the years. However, it had become clear that the old offices would not be suitable for AMTIL as it moves forward with its current strategy, and that a new base would be required to accommodate future growth.

An extensive search was undertaken of potential locations around Melbourne, till the site in Bayswater was identified as meeting all the necessary criteria. The purchase was completed earlier this year, after which work got underway on the time-consuming process of preparing the site, ahead of AMTIL officially moving in late September.

“It’s great that we’re finally all moved in at our new premises,” said Shane Infanti, CEO of AMTIL. “Relocating is a big undertaking, especially when you’ve been somewhere as long as we were in Wantirna. But it’s actually been a good chance to have a clearout and a bit of a reset, and now we’re in, I think the team is settling in very well. We’re looking forward to welcoming our members for a visit when they are in the area.”

AMTIL’s office will be closing for the Christmas holidays at 5.00pm on Thursday 23 December, and will reopen on Tuesday 4 January. We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our members and the wider Australian manufacturing community a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
