Logan to investigate new innovation precinct

Manufacturing News

Logan City Council has announced that it will investigate an innovation precinct to attract high-tech business, following what it describes as “an investment boom” in the last five years in traditional industries such as manufacturing and logistics.

The proposed precinct would be in Underwood and Slacks Creek, adjacent to the intersection of Logan and Kingston roads intersection, according to a statement from the council on Wednesday. 

The council in south-east Queensland said it would seek to attract companies in sectors such as aeronautical engineering, energy, biotechnology, and computer component manufacturing.

“It will provide high-paying employment opportunities close to home for those nearby, and new customers for existing businesses in the precinct,” said Councillor Mindy Russell, with the site a benefit for those in and outside of the area.

The council cited businesses already in the area among current strengths, including education technology company Go1, drone delivery business Wing (pictured), recycling tech company BlockTexx, and medical manufacturer Imaging Solutions.
