More manufacturing and warehouse jobs are coming to Western Sydney after the approval of a new Ardex facility in the Mamre Road precinct.
Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies said the $71 million project would provide a boost to the economy and see more jobs in the city’s west.
“Work is expected to start later this year on the new facility that will produce goods such as cement renders, surface finishers, waterproofing, and grouts and other products tradies rely on,” Mrs Davies said.
“These types of projects are important to the local area. This project will create 300 construction jobs and 140 operational jobs, while the facility will produce 48,000 tonnes of powder products and 5,000 tonnes of liquid products every year.
“The development of the Mamre Road precinct is an exciting opportunity for jobs growth in our area, and Ardex’s approval is only the start of the investment that is coming to the precinct and Western Sydney Aerotropolis.”
Minister for Planning and Minister for Homes Anthony Roberts said the project signified strong investment in the Mamre Road precinct.
“We are already seeing the early signs that Mamre Road precinct is on track to transform the area into an economic hub of 850 hectares of industrial land that will accommodate 5,200 construction jobs and 17,000 ongoing jobs when fully developed,” Mr Roberts said.
“This follows Government approval in May of the first stage of the $341 million Aspect Industrial Estate on Mamre Road, which will also create hundreds of new jobs and has nine more buildings at the site currently in the planning pipeline.”
