Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 24th October 2011

Australian food industry design and construction company Wiley has been given the green light for the second stage of a multi-million dollar expansion of smallgoods producer Primo Smallgoods.

The project involves construction of the largest Australian factory of its kind, with a combined project floor area of 40,000 square metres on an 8.6 hectare greenfield site in Wacol, west of Brisbane.

Stage one was completed recently and included construction of a raw material freezer and distribution chiller, while stage two will include construction of a ham, bacon, salami and smallgoods processing operation and corporate offices.

Wiley Managing Director Tom Wiley expects the construction and operation of a manufacturing plant will create 600 new jobs in Queensland.
