All-composite caravan maker Zone RV has announced a major expansion of their Sunshine Coast, Queensland (Australia) plant, including purchasing a 22m x 5m 3D printer. It is said to be the biggest in the southern hemisphere.

According to a report, the company’s founder, Dave Biggar, and CEO, Adrian Toft, hosted Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson to inspect their growing facilities.

Toft said he was extremely thrilled about the new facility and the huge 3D printer.

“At 22 meters x 5 meters wide, it is huge. We’re hiring now, and if you have an interest in automation, robotics, and mechatronics, come and talk to us,” Toft said.

Zone RV incorporates technologies from the maritime and aeronautical industries to construct lighter, stronger, and safer off-road caravans that are all-composite with bodies and cabinetry systems.

This can help users stay under their towing vehicles’ Gross Combined Mass (GCM).

The composite bodies are mounted on a custom chassis and specially developed CruiseMaster suspension systems suitable for Australian roads with corrugated surfaces.

The company is investing in a new AU$7.5-million, 5,000-square meter facility located in Coolum Eco-Industrial Park.

Caravan sales have been booming because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Zone RV said the expansion would create 124 new full-time jobs.

Sunshine Coast Council provides business support and incentives such as the possibility of a rebate on eligible development application fees and the option of a staged payment for infrastructure fees.
