With the extensive support and quality aluminium plate provided by BlueScope Sheet Metal Supplies, South Australian company Aluminium Dynamics is able to competitively supply the aluminium boat building industry with fully cut CNC aluminium kits.
Located in Adelaide, South Australia, Aluminium Dynamics is part of the family owned Kemp Group which also includes the companies Calibre Marine, Hypac and Oceantech Design. Established in March 2003, Aluminium Dynamics’ primary role was to supply the aluminium boat building industry in the form of fully cut CNC aluminium kits and particularly to support its fellow Kemp Group shipbuilding and design companies.
These are Oceantech Design, a multi-disciplined marine design company specialising in the design of stern and prawn trawlers, as well as large aluminium craft, and Calibre Marine, a leading Australian aluminium boat builder specialising in high-quality aluminium vessels for the commercial markets.
Since its inception Aluminium Dynamics has expanded its engineering and machining capabilities to include several CNC routers and a 3 Axis machining centre and now services the defence, marine and general engineering industries with aluminium components and fabrications.
One of their most recent projects, which required over 50 tonnes of aluminium plate supplied by BlueScope Sheet Metal Supplies’ Wingfield branch, was a large commercial fishing vessel. “It was a catamaran longliner for a NSW fishing company,” explained Grant Kemp, Managing Director of Aluminium Dynamics.
“It was designed in QLD and all the processing, fabrication and fit out – fromstart to finish – was done here under the one roof. It was a big project and there’s a second vessel to follow for a local client that is similar in size and capacity.”
Aluminium Dynamics is greatly assisted in meeting the demands of such impressive projects by BlueScope Sheet Metal Supplies Wingfield branch, which carries large 2200mm x 9000mm aluminium plate in thicknesses from 3mm up to 50mm that is supplied on consignment.
“We’ve been working with BlueScope Sheet Metal Supplies for 14 years now and we have a great working relationship that offers several important benefits,” Grant Kemp said. “The consignment stock arrangement we have works really well and the stock level they can hold on the floor, being an international operator…that volume of stock allows us to be competitive.
