OPENING DOORS AND CREATING JOBS FOR OUR COMMUNITY

A garage door manufacturer in Hallam will create 14 new local jobs with a grant from the Andrews Labor Government’s $33 million Local Industry Fund for Transition.

State Member for Narre Warren South Judith Couacaud Graley today visited Eco Garage Doors Pty Ltd to announce a $200,000 grant which will assist the company to purchase new equipment to manufacture better quality garage doors at a lower cost.

As a result of this capital investment, the company will employ 14 new workers, including seven retrenched automotive workers, in the first 18 months.

The Local Industry Fund for Transition is open for expressions of interest. For more information visit the Business Victoria website at www.business.vic.gov.au.
