FEECO International, a global leader in providing equipment and solutions to mining and natural resources companies, will be participating in a global trade mission to Australia through a partnership between The State of Wisconsin and the Council of Great Lakes Governors (CGLG). The mission takes place from May 3-11 with stops in Melbourne and Sydney. FEECO will also be participating in an additional mission to Indonesia and Singapore that will take place from May 12-18.
The trip includes culture briefings, market research, networking events, and a tour of the country’s major markets to meet with potential partners and companies with similar interests.
According to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, Australia has the world’s 13th largest economy, with a $1.4 trillion GDP and only China imports more goods from Wisconsin in the Australasia region. Their abundant natural resources include coal, iron, copper and alumina.
“Australia’s strong economy and rich natural resources make it an ideal place to do business” said Dan Madigan, President and CEO of FEECO. Madigan added, “They are projecting a major growth in mining, and our experience would make us a great partner for companies looking for equipment in the region. “

The Pakenham facility is currently equipped for lab testing, including a rotary dryer, pin mixer, pan pelletizer and hammer mill with plans for an expansion to a full testing and manufacturing facility in the future already in the works.
