WEST Coast Corporate Superannuation has been appointed servicing adviser to Indian-owned mining company Birla Mt Gordon.
Birla recently purchased the Mt Gordon copper mine in Queensland from the receivers of Western Metals.
West Coast manager Allan Rickerby said he was also in discussions with Birla to implement a corporate superannuation program at its Nifty copper mine in the Pilbara, which it purchased in March.
The ultimate owner of both operations is Indian conglomerate Aditya Birla Group, which has more than 70,000 employees worldwide.
Mr Rickerby said Birla recognised the benefits of a good corporate superannuation program, including administration savings and the potential for reduced insurance premiums.
West Coast will implement online administration at Mt Gordon, including ‘straight through’ processing of superannuation contributions.
The service would also give members online access to fund details.
West Coast will train administration staff and will conduct on-site education programs for staff to lift their understanding of superannuation.
