At the invitation of Dr. Hans Moormann, Managing Partner of the JOEST group, Lynette Wood visited the JOEST group in Duelmen on September 8, 2020.
Lynette Wood has been the Australian Ambassador in Berlin for Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein since 2016.
The official welcome by Dr. Moormann and Dr. Marcus Wirtz was followed by a presentation of the JOEST group with a special focus on the largest subsidiary of the JOEST group: JOEST Australia.
In Perth, the new plant has just been put into operation on an area of more than 10.000m² and with an investment volume of 10 million €. The growing demand in Australia is now being met with more than double the capacity, giving the opportunity to expand into new market segments and industries. Founded in 2001, JOEST Australia Pty. with its 45 employees mainly develops and builds large screening and conveying machines for the primary raw material industry.
The company presentation was followed by a joint tour of the production halls at the headquarter in Duelmen.
Before Ambassador Wood visited the Wirtschaftsclub Westfalen e.V. in Muenster and gave a lecture there, an entry was made in the Golden Book of the city of Muenster. The Lord Mayor of the City of Muenster, Mr. Markus Lewe, welcomed the Australian Ambassador in the City Hall of Muenster.
