Secured funding for a new steel processing plant

  • I lobbied, with the support of 3,500 South Australians, for the Government to commit $15 million to establish a steel processing plant to build electrical transmission towers in Whyalla from Whyalla steel.

  • This investment will directly employ 80 people during construction and, once the facility is in operation, will directly employ 150 workers.

  • Over the next decade it is expected that at least $400 million of infrastructure capital expenditure that would otherwise be spent overseas will be brought back to Australia with over 160,000 tonnes of steel sourced from Australian steel manufacturers.
