New firm moves in

Central Leader - - NEWS -

A new of­fice and ware­house in Pen­rose was opened by the prime min­is­ter last week.

Hy­draulink has taken over the pre­vi­ously va­cant and dated space on the cor­ner of O’Rorke and Sta­tion roads.

The New Zealand­based com­pany pro­duces hy­draulic hoses and fit­tings. It will lo­cate its Aus­tralasian head of­fice at the new fa­cil­ity.

MP Pe­seta Sam Lo­tuIiga at­tended the open­ing. The site is also home to sev­eral other businesses in­clud­ing Laminex and AA In­sur­ance and is part of what Mr Lotu-Iiga de­scribes as a ‘‘revi­til­i­sa­tion’’ of the area.

The Hy­draulink fitout cost around $750,000. Thirty staff are cur­rently em­ployed at the precinct.

‘‘The re­gen­er­a­tion of this part of Pen­rose is a great ex­am­ple of how an age­ing precinct can un­dergo a sig­nif­i­cant trans­for­ma­tion,’’ Mr Lotu-Iiga says.
