A massive congratulations are in order for CPAA Member, Border Crane Consultants, for opening their brand-new facility in Wodonga on the New South Wales/Victoria border. The development of the $3.8 million headquarters will facilitate the creation of 20 new jobs in the area of Wodonga.
“We will employ an additional 20 staff during the next 12 months to keep up with current demands. BCC’s Director Jason Barry said. “With only 30 per cent of our work coming from the local area; we are bringing money back into the local economy and creating jobs, locally.”
Wodonga Mayor Cr Anna Speedie officially opened the 3500m2 state-of-the-art facility in the Baranduda Industrial Estate on Monday 25 May 2020.
“The new facility is six times the size of our previous leased Kendall St workshop and will allow us to take on a greater volume of work” Mr Barry said. “It allows us to continue to grow the business with plans to expand existing and new ventures including our eco-blasting and fabrication functions.”
Mr Barry also said the business has had minimal impact from COVID-19 and is currently advertising positions for qualified tradesmen and apprentices. “We are one of the lucky ones as the work we carry out is essential,” he said. “We service all states and territories so the logistics have been challenging at times, but our team is incredible".
