$2.5 million expansion of Dunedin company Palmers Mechanical,
in Neptune St, Dunedin, is nearing completion.
Company manager Craig Stringer said it was estimated
construction would be completed in early April, allowing the
company to keep up with growing demand for its products from
the Australian mining industry.
The new workshop would be used predominantly for the
construction of large mobile mixing units, which were
attached to trucks and used to carry raw materials for
explosives directly to blasting sites at Australian mines, he
