BOC gears up to move

A SUBIACO business is leaving its home of 71 years for a new greenfields site in Canning-vale Industrial Park.

BOC Gases Austra-lia’s $17 million move comes after three years of negotiations with the Subiaco Redevelop-ment Authority.

BOC’s lease in Subiaco, valid for ano-ther 35 years, has been bought by the SRA.

Work on the new BOC plant will begin in November and is ex-pected to be completed by June 2001. Until then the company will continue to use its Subiaco facility.

BOC’s joint venture partner Transfield Worley will undertake project management and construction of the new site.

BOC WA general manager Peter Hyland said the move to Canningvale meant the company could build a world class filling and distribution facility.

“Internationally this is a very exciting project because we have the opportunity to use a greenfield site to establish a tailor-made operation,” he said.
