Deb Group has announced plans to build a $15 million manufacturing facility at Moorebank Business Park in south-west Sydney. The new facility will service the Australian and Southeast Asian markets.
The company manufacturers occupational skin care products and dispensing systems for use in workplaces and public facilities, for use across industrial, commercial, automotive healthcare and food sectors.
Deb Group chief executive officer Bryan Anderson said: “[A]t a time when many companies are moving their manufacturing facilities to Asia, we feel investing in our long standing position in the Australian market is a significant step to develop both local and international market opportunities”.
The company’s new purpose-built 5000sqm facility will include manufacturing, warehousing and office accommodation. Work on the new site will commence this month, with completion expected mid-2013.
Deb Australia managing director Steve Saboune said: “This investment confirms our commitment to the Australian market and its role in growing Deb’s presence in the Asia Pacific region." The move aims to build on last year’s launch of the company’s global product range.
