Inghams Enterprises has begun recruiting for its $130
million Edinburgh Parks plant.
According to Inghams
' finance manager, John Needs, the company plans to
employ 200 staff for its new plant within two years, and has long-term plans to
boost employment at its Bolivar plant by 300 staff within five years.
"Inghams has identified South Australia as a future state of growth," Mr.
Needs said. "This is good news for the state." The company had initially
targeted New South Wales for expansion but selected SA for its lower cost base
and a "very supportive state government."
The company plans to extend its Monarto-based hatchery and Mile End
feedmill production facilities to boost the company's weekly throughput from
500,000 chickens to about 1.2 million chickens.
