Companies move to Bellingen

INDUSTRIAL power board production and a company specialising in environmentally-friendly community projects – you couldn’t get two more different businesses but both have recently made Bellingen Shire their base.

The first is Pacific Electrics, owned by Mick Flanagan, which is expanding from its already well-established plant in Bathurst.

And the second is OzGreen, champion of the sustainable development sector.

The company has projects running locally, nationally and internationally and has now moved its premises from Sydney.

Both say the support of the Bellingen Shire Council made their move a much easier and more enjoyable process.

Sue Lennox of Oz Green said Bellingen had long held a special place in their hearts and when staff was asked where the company should base itself, Bellingen was the unanimous choice.

For Mr Flanagan, the move here will help him target projects in the North Coast and South-East Queensland.

Shire mayor Mark Troy said the council was actively working to attract new business to the area and together seven new jobs had now been created.
