Meridian Park industrial estate will host the next stage of significant growth for one of Western Australia’s most successful manufacturers.
“LandCorp’s Industrial Lands Authority has an important role to play in ensuring there is easy access to quality industrial land opportunities for local, national and international businesses.” Minister for Lands Ben Wyatt said.
“McGowan Government is continuing to invest in supporting jobs growth for all Western Australians and giving people the opportunity to live close to where they work.”
Commercial baker Great Temptations is set to triple its production facilities, securing a 3,367 sqm lot at the modern industrial estate.
Great Temptations is one of many businesses taking advantage of the range of quality Industrial Lands Authority estates available to stimulate and support Western Australia’s economic development.
Situated within the Neerabup Industrial Area, Meridian Park comprises 400 ha and is ideally located to meet the business needs of Perth’s fast-growing north-west corridor for the next 30-50 years.
Estate’s proximity to the northern corridor growth areas has also contributed to its success, providing increased local employment options for local residents.
250 people are currently employed across the businesses operating in Meridian Park, contributing to the expected 20,000 jobs to be provided within the greater Neerabup Industrial Area upon completion.
Great Temptations’ new site is triple the size of its current premises and workforce at Wangara, enabling the continued growth of its local operations and export business.
Company supplies quality baked goods to a range of Australian outlets including independent supermarkets, and major customers in the supermarket and convenience sector. It also distributes its products to international customers in Singapore and Hong Kong.
Great Temptations’ new facility will see an increase in its workforce once it operates from the new site.
