I think it’s important that we use this time of year to reflect back on what has been achieved during the year at COR Cooling as a group and as individuals. I must say that it gives me great pride in the knowledge that COR has made a number of significant achievements throughout the year.
There is no doubt that our team is one of our greatest strengths as an organisation, along with our culture. We talk a lot about our values and how we can make a difference and how we can add real value to our customers. It is really important that we continually recognise and appreciate that it is indeed our own people and their skills and attitudes that make us who we are and therefore separates us from the crowd; we simply get on with it. We have a great culture and a great team of people at COR and I really appreciate the ongoing support, the hard work and the commitment that every person has shown during the last 12 months.
This commitment has enabled COR to continue to develop and continue to move forward in very challenging times. I am particularly proud of our achievements in safety. In 2015 COR has achieved 1000 Days Lost Time Injury Free across all divisions Australia wide. COR and its management was also recently recognised by the Western Australian Government when our Branch Manager in Kalgoorlie, Lloyd Needham received the “Individual Commitment to Safety Award” for 2015. Our safety track record over the past three years is among the best in the industry and recognition of this nature confirms we are on the right track. It takes a huge commitment to reach these sorts of milestones and I thank all our managers for their ongoing commitment to our safety values.
This year, COR has also been successful in winning a number of significant service agreement contracts with major mining companies in various states. In Western Australia, COR recently won a major five year service contract with one the world’s largest mining companies servicing their entire HME fleet operating at all sites in the iron ore sector of WA. COR was recognised as being the most capable of providing all the services required and was able to demonstrate the greatest value to the client following a lengthy and very detailed process. During this time, COR’s facilities were also audited and visited on numerous occasions and our accreditations and standards in safety, quality and the environment were well recognised. COR also won a significant tender for a similar services agreement in the Hunter Valley earlier in the year. I would like to acknowledge and thank our very loyal and supportive customers all around Australia for the way they have allowed COR to engage with them and to be able to collaborate and find real value in what COR has to offer.
Overall it has been a busy and very productive year for the COR group. We have celebrated and recognised individual achievements of our staff, our business and our milestones and we are optimistic about the future. We have much to look forward to so keep an eye on our web site and social media for further exciting news and announcements to come in 2016. We have a number of existing projects, new products and more major contracts to come early in the year and we are working on these in the background whilst our people continue to strive to exceed our customers’ expectations and help them achieve their goals. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and safe, happy and prosperous New Year.

Market leading industrial cooling and heat exchange solutions supplier COR Cooling is relocating its New South Wales based operations to Rutherford during June/July 2015.
COR’s current operations located in Thornton and Singleton in the Hunter Valley will be consolidated into a single, larger and more efficient hub central to both operations. This will provide a more consolidated range of services to COR’s valued customers in the Hunter Valley Region and broader NSW market.
COR Cooling’s CEO, Warren Arthur said, “Relocating to a new larger facility will enable us to provide increased capabilities, better use of our resources and enhance the level of service we can provide to our valued customers in the region.”
“Bringing our two locations together in the Hunter Valley makes sense and will allow us to provide greater value by combining all our resources in the one location and those benefits can be passed onto our customers in terms of savings, response times and efficiencies”
“Our new Rutherford facility is easily accessible in an industrial park with wide roads and excellent delivery capacity for large trucks. It has a fully equipped modern workshop including a 10 tonne overhead crane with larger hard stand areas and wash bays that will provide improved equipment handling and it will further enhance our commitment to quality and safety, said Mr Arthur.”
COR Cooling’s new Rutherford facility is located at 15 Bradmill Avenue, Rutherford, NSW.

Reduced Fuel Consumption with Dura-Lite® CACs
North QLD Based Transport Company, 2013
A leading North QLD logistic services provider were experiencing cracking and consequent leaking from their tube-to-header charge air coolers (CACs) installed in their trucks.
In addition, they had an issue with cracking on their relatively light duty manifold tanks. These problems were affecting the company’s ability to reliably provide a required 24/7 service to their customers.
Traditional bonded tube-to-header CACs have known issues of cracking and leakage, due in combination to the vibration and fatigue that they undergo as a result of the extreme temperature gradients they are subject to during normal operation.
After conducting a system evaluation, COR Cooling supplied a Dura-Lite® Charge Air Cooler to replace the CAC that had failed. Dura-Lite® CAC’s innovative patented silicon grommet tube-to-header seal system eliminates failure due to cracking and leaking, and is guaranteed to be leak free for 5 years or 1,000,000 kilometres.
The installation of the Dura-Lite® CAC resulted in reduced repair and maintenance costs for the truck’s operation and less downtime causing negative impacts on customer service.
In addition, when undertaking post-installation monitoring, the fuel consumption of the truck (same truck, same driver, same route) was reported to show increased efficiency with the Dura-Lite® CAC installed. The fuel economy improved from 1.72 km/litre to 1.83 km/litre resulting in a payback period of only 22,000km.
