A digital welding platform for an earthmoving attachment manufacturer is among projects being assisted through round two of the WA government’s Regional Economic Development program.
Eight projects (details below) gained state government assistance in the round of grants totalling $797,995, including Woodlands Distillery, Dellendale Creamery and Himac Attachments.
“Himac Attachments will receive $47,148 to develop and construct an interactive digital platform for fabrication and welding processes, creating new job opportunities for young people, including school leavers, in the region,” according to the statement from WA regional development minister Alannah MacTiernan (pictured).
“Streamlining the manufacturing process will also boost production, benefiting local steel supply businesses and decreasing the number of attachments that need to be imported.”
RED is a five-year program, budgeted at $28.8 million.
