Building stations for terrarium production have been approved in New South Wales, with the government announcing the building of two terrarium workshops in Wollongong.
The construction of the two terraria workshops will begin in early 2018, with each site being able to produce one million square feet of space.
Building stations will be built on the premises to accommodate large terrarium quantities.
New South Wales Minister for Agriculture Richard Wynne said: “These are some of the most exciting things we’ve seen in the last five years in terms of new industrial sites in Australia.”
Mr Wynne said the government would provide the state with up to $200,000 for the two workshops, and $400,000 in public money for each.
The project is part of a broader package of measures the state has announced to support new and existing industrial sites, with a focus on new manufacturing sites.
Wynne said the first workshop would begin construction in February next year, and the second in March 2019.
Mr Hamilton said he was confident the first building site would be a success.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to get people excited about the future of manufacturing in Australia,” he said.
“In addition to the fact that the site is close to the CBD, it’s close to a significant industrial site in the city of Wollngong and it’s also close to other significant industries in Sydney.”
