Northern Victoria MP Jaclyn Symes says 29 jobs will be created by the planned relocation of Immix from Albury to the old Wodonga saleyards, and Formula Forage Australia from Corowa to the Logic Wodonga industrial estate.
Nearly $6 million will be spent on a new metal processing and export facility at the saleyards site, and $1.4 million at Logic, with the state government contributing to both investments.
“Country Victoria is clearly the place to do business with two NSW businesses choosing Wodonga as the place for their business expansions,” Ms Symes said.
“The Andrews Labor government has attracted significant private sector investment in Wodonga through its Regional Jobs Fund, which will create 29 new local jobs.”
Ms Symes also announced $2.75 million from the Fixing Country Roads fund for projects in Wodonga, Indigo, Towong and Alpine areas.
