More jobs will be created at a Narangba agricultural business in the next two years, as the company plans to construct a second work site after receiving a grant from the Federal Government.
Up to 15 manufacturing and warehouse jobs will be created at Accensi, a worldwide developer, manufacturer and distributor of agricultural crop protection solutions, once the project is completed.
It’s expected to cost $4.5 million, with $2 million provided by the Federal Government as part of its Modern Manufacturing Fund, and Accensi chipping in the rest.
The expansion will allow Accensi to construct and install a new formulation facility 1km from its existing site at Potassium St, enabling complete segregation of herbicide and non-herbicide manufacturing units to eliminate the risk of airborne particle contamination.
Australian Agribusiness National Manufacturing manager Stan Bowes, who oversees the Narangba site, says the grant means the company can meet higher industry standards.
“By having a second site it will help us align to our customers’ expectations and the standards within the industry to keep,” he says.
“It’s good to see this project has been recognised and the value it is going to add to the Australian agricultural industry.”
