Wodonga company Electrical Design & Construction has earned a $150,000 grant and several new contracts, prompting an expansion and the need for 20 new workers.
The ABC reports that the company, which specialises in large-scale automation projects, is building a new $1.2 million manufacturing plant.
"It's a good sign for Albury-Wodonga and surrounding areas," said EDC director Greg Flower.
"We employ people from Yarrawonga, Corowa, Mulwala through to all the way down the Murray where we're working.”
There are 60 workers currently employed by EDC, and of the 20 new employees, four will be apprentices.
The grant of $150,000 from the Victorian government was announced by local MP Ben Tilley yesterday.
"This investment is a vote of confidence in Wodonga and regional Victoria as a place to do business," The Border Mail reports Tilley as saying, noting that nearby EDC had earlier considered relocating to neighbouring Albury.
