More silos, stock feeders and farming equipment will be locally manufactured in Cowra to meet the growing domestic and international demand for agricultural products, thanks to the NSW Government’s Regional Job Creation Fund.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke MP said a $220,000 grant will help Active Global Group Pty Ltd scale up its production of Brookfield and Agribin brands of farming and agricultural equipment, creating up to 11 jobs for the region.

Ms Cooke said the expansion will drastically increase the floor space of the facility and enable the purchase of a steel rolling mill and metal fabrication equipment, allowing local production and eliminating reliance on other states or offshore suppliers.

“These upgrades will help Active Global Group Pty Ltd to locally manufacture field chaser bins, silos and stock feeders that are in high demand by farming operations right across Australia,” Ms Cooke said.

“The upgrades will also open up a huge amount of floor space, which enables more production, allowing more farming equipment to be manufactured for more customers to keep our agricultural indus-tries operational and thriving.”

Director of Active Global Group Pty Ltd, Craig Wallace said this investment will have a great flow-on effect for the wider Cowra Community.

“These new jobs will bring new families, new skills and more diversity to our local community, boosting the town from every angle,” Mr Wallace said.
