The first Aldi store opened in Australia in 2001, and now the company operates over 400 stores across NSW, ACT, QLD and VIC. The majority of Aldi’s exclusive brands are sourced from Australian suppliers, and with its planned expansion into SA and WA this year, Aldi is recruiting 400 West Australians to work at its 21 confirmed WA locations.
To support these planned stores, Georgiou has delivered the first distribution centre in WA for Aldi Australia, after being selected to design and construct their new Jandakot distribution facility – a contract worth $57 million.
Capable of supporting in excess of 70 retail stores, the 55,000sqm distribution centre includes refrigerated areas, ancillary buildings, an office, extensive heavy-duty hardstand areas and landscaping.
The building has been designed with major internal spans between support columns to the client’s requirements, and also has significant working heights.

Why was Moddex product selected?
Through Moddex Project Management solutions, a series of site measures informed accurate CAD drawings – while supporting several design changes throughout the Aldi Distribution Centre project. Working to tight deadlines, a range of Moddex proprietary configurations connected seamlessly across internal and external stairs, warehouse, loading docks, office, disability and emergency access requirements.Adaptable and versatile proprietary systems
Moddex delivered a range of proprietary configurations designed to comply with Australian Standards, DDA and BCA requirements. Assistrail
configurations AR45 and AR50 connected within the same internal stairwell to meet disability access and fire isolated emergency stair requirements.
Where this same stairwell height reached over one metre, Assistrail AR50 connected seamlessly with Conectabal CB30 to achieve compliance for
workers at heights.It’s getting easy to be green with Moddex no-weld system technology
