Ingham’s expands WA operations to meet demand
Poultry producer, Ingham’s, will be expanding its Western Australian operations, opening a new feedmill near Perth.
Ingham’s said that in line with its planned business strategy, it will be growing its farming, milling and processing volumes over the next three years to help meet local demand.
The new feedmill will be located at Muchea, near Perth, and is expected to be built by 2020. All existing facilities at Ingham’s Wanneroo facility will be re-located to the new Muchea feedmill.
A new hatchery will also be built at a new yet to be decided on site.
Ingham’s and contracted partners will invest more than AUD $70 million in the expansion and an estimated 400 new jobs should be created.
Chief Commercial Officer of Ingham’s, Quinton Hildebrand, said to support the expansion Ingham’s will sell off its Wanneroo facility.
“Leaseback arrangements will be part of the sale conditions to cover the construction period of our new facilities,” he said.
In making the announcement, Hildebrand said he was encouraged by the support Ingham’s has received from all levels of government in initiating its growth plan.
“Ingham’s looks forward to continuing to work closely with stakeholders to support our continued investment in WA and ensure that our operations in Wanneroo have minimum impact on the community for our remaining period there,” he said.
