Minerals company Alpha HPA Ltd has big plans for their new headquarters in the Queensland Government’s State Development Area. The $300 million high purity alumina industrial plant will be built on a recently purchased 9-hectare site, and it’s expected that this ambitious project could generate hundreds of jobs when complete.
The Queensland government is committed to creating more jobs in order for the economy to recover. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said that they will be supporting various industries and businesses, which should help with this goal of putting Queenslanders back on their feet.
The Minister for Regional Development and Manufacturing, Glenn Butcher said that with an abundance of skilled workers, world-class infrastructure, and very accessible ports, it’s no wonder that Alpha HPA made its home here.
The growth of renewable energy is driving new industry in Gladstone, with the Deputy Premier and State Development Minister Steven Miles announcing that this will soon make it an international hub for manufacturing.
The Energy, Renewables, and Hydrogen Minister Mick de Brenni stated that the opportunities were a result of the Palaszczuk government’s efforts to showcase Queensland as a world leader in the renewable energy and decarbonising industry.
Rimas Kairaitis of Alpha HPA said that it’s an exciting time for the Australian Company as they make rapid progress on their Stage 1 Precursor Production Facility (PPF).
