“WesTrac has invested over $200m since 2012 to support the growth in the NSW economy, and Casula is the latest in this series of investments right across the state. Casula complements our $170m facility at Tomago which opened in 2012 and which was designed as a long term commitment of service and support to the community of Newcastle,” says Graham.
“This investment has been designed to support our customers, who play an integral part in the construction of infrastructure to support economic growth in NSW. Our end customers are typically mining companies and construction/earthmoving contractors contracted to work on large (usually government funded) infrastructure projects.
He continues: “This investment is a reflection of our confidence in both the current activity levels and future outlook for the construction and resource sectors in NSW. We see a resurgent construction sector and improved commodity prices underpinning strong growth in the NSW economy for several years to come.
“We employ over 150 people at Casula, including 10 apprentices. The continued growth in activity in Western Sydney is creating more jobs for local people and we expect that to continue to be the case. This facility will generate revenues of $200m per annum in the Western Sydney economy and the opportunities for future employment growth are considerable” he says.
