In a major coup for Victorian manufacturing, the world’s most innovative golf buggy will be designed and built in Melbourne, creating nearly 200 local jobs.
Visiting the team at Concourse Golf in Dandenong, Victorian Minister for Industry and Employment Wade Noonan and Member for Dandenong Gabrielle Williams congratulated the company on choosing Melbourne to establish its new Australian headquarters.
Concourse Golf will consolidate its operations by moving manufacturing from China and its head office from Sydney.
It will create 198 new jobs by 2020 in production and research and development.
SRX Global Australia in Dandenong will manufacture Concourse Golf’s cutting-edge new technology – the Concourse Golf Smart Wheels.
The Smart Wheels are self-contained units that convert existing manual push buggies into electric buggies by simply changing the wheels.
The technology will change the way electric golf buggies operate and can be potentially applied to a range of other industries, including health and logistics.
The Victorian Government is bringing new businesses and new jobs to Victoria thanks to a range of support programs.
Our flagship Investment Attraction and Assistance Program (IAAP) – helping businesses set up shop in Victoria – received an additional $90 million in the Victorian Budget 2017/18.
Since coming to power, the Victorian Government has facilitated investments to create more than 11,000 new jobs.
The Victorian Government always support local jobs and industries – that means creating and protecting jobs, driving innovation and supporting economic growth.
