In June 2016, a group of engineering students from Griffith University, led by Professor David Thiel, Deputy Head of School (Research) at Griffith School of Engineering toured the SuperCool and SuperTest facility at Ormeau in Queensland with host SuperCool Managing Director Mark Mitchell. The visit gave the students a rare insight into the challenges facing the transport industry in the cold chain. They voted the visit a great success – although surprised to find a string instrument manufacturing plant inside the complex. Epoch Musical Instruments is one of a number of the SuperCool Group of Companies and specialises in high performance instruments, many of which are used by professional musicians around the world.
