Yarwun celebrates 30 years

06 Aug 2020

On Thursday 6 August, our Yarwun team came together to celebrate 30 years of operation at the site.

Gathering on a sunny Queensland afternoon, the Yarwun team enjoyed a lunchtime celebration to officially mark the occasion (with social distancing and COVID-19 protocols in place to keep our team safe).

Bertus Devillliers, Vice President for Continuous Manufacturing, joined the celebrations and shared his thoughts on this important milestone achievement. 

“The Yarwun Orica family has survived, thrived and expanded. It is a proud day for Orica. Yarwun is a significant part of the organisation’s global footprint and a core part of our Australian manufacturing network,” Bertus said. 

Viney Kumar, Site Manager at Yarwun, thanked his team for their ongoing commitment and dedication to Orica, and expressed his excitement for the future.

“I look forward to continuing to improve the plant for future generations to come,” Viney said. 

Highlights of the day included team members sharing their stories of the early days, and reminiscing over old issues of the Yarwun Yarns Newsletter. 

The lunch event wrapped up with a giant Orica cake cutting ceremony. 

Congratulations to our Yarwun team!
