Manufacturing Investment in the City of Logan


It’s amazing once you start to knock on
the doors around Logan just how many different companies are here
manufacturing all sorts of wonderful things. The City of Logan allows us to go
and deliver world-class products both domestically and internationally. Being in
Logan gives us access to ports, from the airport, or from the sea docks, as far as the
major infrastructure and the roads it’s fantastic. Freight costs are absolutely
reduced from where we used to be based. Logan is really well placed because of
the cost of land and having ready access to some really good skilled labor within
sort of 10 or 15 minutes of the facility we’re not finding that we’re having to
pay more to get them to travel further. We work very closely with schools and
TAFE’s to make sure we can get the right skill set for the future. We’ve got
upwards of 200 staff now – blue and white collar – and increasing the workers
everyday because of the amount of work that we have on. We operate the whole
facility here from engineering, design down to manufacture and delivery. ATP
Science is now distributing into the UAE, into India, into Asia, we’re starting to
expand quite rapidly internationally and that’s obviously very good for ATP and for Logan.
Poppy’s Chocolate manufacture 35 tonnes of chocolates per year, we supply nationally
to large international companies such as Palazzo Versace, the Star Casino, the
Sheraton and Jetstar. I’ve been fortunate to locate my business in this
area but never imagined this choice would be such a good one. What surprises
me about Logan is when you look you can find everything you need here, from the
point of view of customers, staff, and suppliers, there is no better place than
where we are right here. You’ve got a council who are pro-business and they work out
ways for you to be successful, and that’s the biggest reason I’m here and the
biggest reason why this has been a success.
I believe the city’s just got huge growth potential, that’s why we’re investing so
heavily behind our business. We don’t see that we’re gonna have to move anywhere.
You should come and have a look for yourself,
look at the location, look at the diversity, it is a great city to be based
in. So if you believe in your business right now it’s the time and Logan’s the
place.
