Wodonga is located on the Victorian side of the VIC/NSW border.

Still seeking to grow, Seeley International has invested AU$20 million in a relocation and expansion of its existing manufacturing facilities. 

The move, which is in part funded by grant from the Victorian Premier’s Job and Investment Fund, will establish a made-for-purpose manufacturing hub at a location removed from its exisitng Wodonga facility, which would then produce a range of innovative products to be sold in Australian and international markets. 

“As a long-standing employer within the Albury-Wodonga community, Seeley International is pleased that this investment accommodates our expansion needs and positions the Company for significant jobs growth and success in the years ahead – with 64% forecast growth in new local employment opportunities expected to be created in the next 5 years,” founder Frank Seeley said.

“Our local manufacturing facility continues to play a critical role in our overall operations, and as well as continuing to fully manufacture award-winning Braemar heating products, the Climate Wizard metal range and the entire AIRA product range, we have also recently welcomed a dozen new engineers and other team members to the plant,” he said.

“One of the biggest challenges we now face is that we have outgrown the existing factory, and with space at a premium it has fast-tracked the need for relocation plans. Establishing a new and larger facility at nearby Wodonga allows us to retain and grow local employee numbers and maintain a strong employer presence within the local community.”

While a construction site and plans are yet to be finalised, Seeley International says the new Wodonga manufacturing facility will be operational early in 2019.
