GPC approves $70m project for Bundaberg
GLADSTONE Ports Corporation has approved construction of the Knauf Plasterboard manufacturing plant at Bundaberg.
Work on the $70-million project will begin by the end of the year.
The project is expected to create 100 jobs over the next 18 months.
Knauf Plasterboard Limited is a subsidiary of the Knauf Group, a world-leading manufacturer of plasterboard, modern insulation materials, plasters and accessories.
When the project was announced in January, Knauf's CEO of Asia Pacific Murray Read said the Bundaberg plant was a great investment for Knauf as it expanded into Queensland.
