AMA Group To Consolidate Melville And Welshpool Sites Into Booragoon Super Site

AMA Group will consolidate operations at Gemini Melville and Gemini Welshpool Assessment Centre into a super site at Booragoon, Western Australia, to house co-located Capital S.M.A.R.T and Gemini (Drive and Non-Drive) businesses.

According to AMA, the site at Booragoon is well equipped to complete Drive and Non-Drive repairs, with significant hardstand for vehicle storage. While the site was hibernated during the COVID-19 pandemic, maintaining a shopfront presence without production, an assessment of the property portfolio identified an opportunity to combine these sites under one roof, returning the site to production while maintaining the Capital S.M.A.R.T shopfront operations.

The team at Melville will relocate to Booragoon, and the team at Welshpool will be redeployed to other AMA Group sites in the local area.

The transition of both sites is expected to be completed by the end of June, and the consolidation is expected to deliver annual savings of more than $600,000.

“Consolidating Melville and Welshpool allows us to take advantage of the fantastic facility at Booragoon. Co-locating Capital S.M.A.R.T and Gemini allows us to leverage the site to service multiple customers and remove surplus property costs,” said AMA Group Chief Operating Officer, Mathew Cooper.
