02 Apr Global Ambitions For New Owners Of Leading WA Engineering Firm
The recent acquisition by SixDe of established West Australian specialist engineering design, manufacturing and tooling company, GMT, is good news for industries which require cutting-edge customised components and machines.
The new company will be known as SixDe and will build on the core services offered by GMT (Groves Manufacturing & Tooling) which include CNC machine programming, metal pressing, rollforming and polyurethane mouldings.
SixDe is a subsidiary of Nexxis Limited, one of Australia’s leading suppliers of specialist NDT, RVI and precision measuring equipment and has already taken swift action to significantly expand the firm’s machining and production capacity and technical capabilities.
With the new injection of expertise and resources, SixDe will be one of only two companies in WA capable of designing and building production-orientated equipment and roll-forming machines.
Its close ties with its Perth-based parent company, Nexxis, will also enable the new owners to deliver expanded capabilities in advanced robotics underpinned by global quality assurance standards. Nexxis is currently undergoing ISO 9001:2015 accreditation.
The company was founded by Stephen Groves and has a proven track record over 30 years as a leader in the field of precision machining. Steve will play an important role in the new company as SixDe’s Technical Design Consultant and together with the whole team, will continue to build on the firm’s established reputation for attention to detail, first-class customer service and high quality, precision-manufactured parts and machines.
According to Jason Silveira, MD of Nexxis : ‘SixDe’s expanded machining capabilities and technical expertise will be of huge benefit to its own clients as well as enable us at Nexxis to offer a more diverse range of services to our customers in industries such as mining, oil & gas, construction and fabrication.
SixDe’s advanced in-house engineering and CAD resources, its CNC machining and manufacturing capabilities, its highly skilled R&D specialists and its clear focus on delivering customers with value for money solutions will further entrench the company as the preferred tooling partner to a wide range of industries in Australia and abroad.
SixDe also offers a comprehensive maintenance and repair service with its team of technicians able to come to site or complete the job in the factory workshop in Perth.
