Bruce Rock Engineering has received grant funding of $150, 000 to support the building of a new workshop at its Bruce Rock facility.
The funding is from the Regional Economic Development Grants (RED Grants) program, a $28.8 million (over five years) State Government initiative that invests in community driven projects to stimulate economic growth and development in regional Western Australia. Our application for funding was submitted to the Wheatbelt Development Commission.
The grant will assist us to streamline and expand our trailer production capacity allowing for fabrication, assembly and stores to be all under one roof. With the increase in production, new job and training opportunities will be generated providing local employees long-term secure employment. We are committed to training the next generation of tradespeople through our apprentice program. Local businesses and suppliers will benefit from our increased activities and the needs of the additional workforce.
We would like to congratulate the other successful applicants: Rowles Agricultural Company, Kochii Eucalyptus Oil Pty Ltd, Jurien Bay Chamber of Commerce, Great Southern Seed Works, Wheatbelt Natural Resource Management, Caternet Pty Ltd, Marvick Native Farms and thank the McGowan Government for investing in Regional Western Australia.
