JBS Australia Pty Limited is a division of JBS, Brazil’s largest multinational in the food sector, and the world’s largest meat company. JBS Australia has an extensive presence along the eastern seaboard, with a number of domestic and globally recognised brand names including AMH, King Island Beef, Royal, Swift Premium, Tasman Meats and Tasmanian Premium Beef.
Wiley are leaders in the field of designing and constructing specialised food processing facilities for companies like JBS Australia.
We take pride in the strong relationship we have built with JBS Australia since the 1980’s having successfully delivered a diverse range of projects across their Australian facilities, each with different individual service needs.
Working with JBS Australia requires a strong understanding of their diverse operations and processes and how each facility must integrate into the overall operational structure. Projects include commercial buildings, abattoirs, meat processing, rendering, boning rooms, feed mills, by products, waste water and centralised dispatching.
Wiley have delivered projects for JBS Australia from North Queensland through to Tasmania, from major metropolitan plants through to remote rural locations. Our in-house multi-disciplined skills have been applied to provide advice, design, engineering, construction and project management on a diverse range of JBS Australia projects, ranging from minor works through to some of the largest, award winning facilities of their type in the Southern Hemisphere.
Wiley partnered with JBS Australia to create an environmentally sound hides processing facility, allowing them the ability to process hides in-house. This required engineering the process in an entirely new way, in particular the use, storage and recovery of salt — traditionally, this has an adverse environmental impact.
Wiley was contracted to design, engineer and construct the new facility to meet JBS Australia’s hide processing needs from multiple plants throughout Queensland. Wiley delivered a world-class hide processing facility for JBS Australia that is innovative, environmentally-effective, sustainable and designed to last in a highly corrosive salt atmosphere. The facility is easy to operate, maintain and is cost-efficient to build and operate over its lifecycle.
Our expertise in the meat industry has delivered overall operational improvements and cost savings to better position JBS Australia in the competitive red meat export markets to the United States, Japan, Korea, South East Asia, Canada and the United Kingdom..
Our knowledge of JBS Australia’s business allows us to develop innovative, cost saving solutions to project challenges, including:
Wiley has successfully constructed facilities to world best practice principles, allowing JBS Australia to meet the demanding regulatory requirements of its export markets.
