Logan manufacturing boost
Logan manufacturer Imaging Solutions is expanding its local testing, manufacturing and production of essential personal protective equipment (PPE) in response to COVID-19, thanks to support from the Queensland Government’s Essential Goods and Supply Chain Program.
The funding is part of up to $50 million being redirected to help Queensland manufacturers make essential goods such as PPE, health consumables and medical devices. As well as building the state’s ability to produce PPE, the funding is helping companies develop innovative technologies and advanced manufacturing capabilities.
With the funding, Imaging Solutions is expanding its existing manufacturing capacity, enhancing testing facilities with the adoption of new-to-Australia capability, and introducing innovative technology to support the local manufacturing of the core materials needed to produce its range of specialist PPE products. The company’s expansion contributes to keeping Queensland’s critical essential health workers safe while also supporting up to 12 new jobs and reducing the reliance on imported PPE imaging products.
Beenleigh’s $20M Queensland Apprenticeship Centre
Queensland is another step closer to becoming a global hydrogen superpower, with the $20 million construction of phase 2 of the Queensland Apprenticeship Centre to support specialised hydrogen energy training delivery underway. The project is on track for completion by June 2022.
The Beenleigh-based centre is a key part of the Queensland Government’s plan to fast-track the development of the state’s hydrogen energy industry. Hydrogen is a clean and renewable fuel that can be used in transport, power supply and a range of industrial processes. It’s expected to be worth about $1.7 billion a year in exports by 2030.
New facilities will expand training capacity from 600 to 800 apprenticeships per year in career paths requiring skills in fire protection, gas plumbing, carpentry, electrical work and plumbing. The project is expected to employ 70 apprentices during construction and support a total of 100 jobs. The government’s investment in our state’s hydrogen production will further boost Queensland’s renewable energy industry with approximately $10 billion of investment since 2015.
Tax relief package
The government provided significant tax relief to support Queensland businesses, landlords, tenants, pubs and clubs, including:
- payroll tax refunds, waivers and deferrals for eligible businesses, targeted at small to medium businesses
- a payroll tax exemption for wages subsidised by the JobKeeper payment
- land tax rebates, waivers and deferrals for eligible taxpayers.
