80 new businesses open in Goulburn Mulwaree in 12 months

Friday, 22 February 2019

Angus Taylor video>>  Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor has welcomed news that 80 new businesses have opened in Goulburn in 12 months.

More than 1000 new businesses have opened in the electorate of Hume in the 2017-18 financial year.

Visiting newly opened glass manufacturer Dragon Glass at Bradfordville on Friday, MrTaylor congratulated owner Kate Wendt on her decision to establish locally.

This is a particularly exciting new business because Kate has a boutique product which she will be exporting to the world,” Mr Taylor said.

“From the design of her own lamination machinery, to the production of multi-layered, toughened glass for structural applications, Dragon Glass is an ambitious enterprise which aims to set new industry standards.”

Owner Ms Wendt said she chose Goulburn because of the transport and logistical advantages.

“I’m an hour and a half to my warehouse at Bankstown, I’m in and out of Canberra and all around Australia. There is a fabulous rail hub here where my materials can be brought in and sent out very easily. For transport and logistics, Goulburn is the perfect place,” Ms Wendt said.

Mr Taylor said construction related businesses, such as glass manufacturing and installation, had seen the greatest rate of development in Goulburn Mulwaree in the past 12 months.

“I am aware this kind of growth is not blanket growth. There are some sectors doing it tough, particularly retail.

“But in terms of localities across my electorate, Goulburn has seen the highest rate of new business growth.” (Dept of Industry, Innovation and Science Business Report 2017-18)
