Ham and salami producer D’Orsogna is expanding its business on the east coast, opening a $41 million facility in Melbourne’s north.

In what was one of the biggest industrial deals in Melbourne in 2017, D’Orsogna has signed up to build a 10,858-square-metre manufacturing plant on 3 hectares at Merrifield Business Park, in Melbourne’s north.

Developed by MAB Corporation and Gibson Property Corporation, the business park is set to become Victoria’s biggest business and employment precinct, and will be larger than Melbourne’s CBD.

“This is a complete turnkey solution for D’Orsogna. We have jointly designed a facility that will be best-in-class for the food manufacturing industry, focusing on efficient and sustainable practices,” MAB Corp managing director Andrew Buxton said.

D’Orsogna’s $41 million deal for the building ($61 million when manufacturing equipment and machinery is included) is set to create up to 240 jobs.

The new facility will allow D’Orsogna to expand its eastern seaboard business and create better efficiencies in its distribution network, with a focus on the south-east Asian market.

D’Orsogna managing director Brad Thomason said the Merrifield site enabled the company to create a factory tailored to its needs.

“We’re thrilled to be calling Merrifield our eastern states home very soon, and proud to be partnering with MAB and GPC,” he said.

“There are many synergies between our businesses – we are a proud Australian, family-owned businesses with a focus on quality, growth and local investment.

“We have ambitious expansion plans for the business over the next few years. The scale and flexibility of Merrifield provides us with an opportunity where we can essentially double our manufacturing footprint.”

Buxton said the D’Orsogna facility will be best-in-class for the food manufacturing industry, focusing on efficient and sustainable practices.
