Often the wait times for oil sample analysis were causing significant concerns at several BHP Western Australia Iron Ore sites. With samples having to travel all the way to Perth, results were delayed by 10-15 days, leaving machinery idle and disrupting production. It was clear that a more efficient solution was needed.
Techenomics, a dynamic small business based in Newman and a newly registered Local Buying Program supplier, recognized the opportunity to deliver the services locally, with remarkable ease.
With a local presence in the same town as BHP’s operations, Techenomics brought a significant advantage. They swiftly collect oil samples and deliver test results within 48 hours. This expedited turnaround time minimizes machinery downtime, ensuring smooth operations and reduced production disruptions.
By eliminating the lengthy transportation process to Perth, Techenomics significantly improved the sample analysis process, setting a new standard for efficiency and reliability. Their collaboration with BHP showcases how local businesses can bring innovative solutions to the table, leveraging proximity and expertise to benefit the entire community.
This success story is a testament to the power of the Local Buying Program, driving meaningful partnerships and fostering a culture of innovation. Together, we continue to shape a future of streamlined operations and thriving local businesses.
