COSTCO’S NEW WESTERN SYDNEY HQ

Warehouse to create 1,000 jobs
RETAIL giant Costco Wholesale has chosen to call NSW home, with plans to build its first Australian warehouse distribution headquarters in Western Sydney.

The project is expected to create up to 1000 jobs.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced the NSW Government had given Costco the greenlight for its $77M project in Kemps Creek, near the site of the future Western Sydney Airport, in what will be the company’s largest facility in Australia.

“This is another big win for NSW jobs,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“The new 14 hectare  facility is expected  to create 730 construction jobs and 210 operational jobs.

“The location of these jobs is also strategically important for our State, with Costco’s new facility only a stone’s throw away from the future Western Sydney Airport site in Badgerys Creek.

“Costco is the latest major employer to be setting up shop near the future airport site, helping form what will be an Aerotropolis – a fully integrated economic precinct that will deliver jobs and opportunities for the people of Western Sydney and across NSW.

“This new employment hub will also provide people living in Western Sydney the chance to work  locally so they  can  spend  less  time  commuting  and  more  time  with their families.”

Minister for Planning Anthony Roberts said Costco’s headquarters promises to deliver a dedicated jobs region around Western Sydney Airport.

“It will bring new jobs closer to the homes of about two million residents living in Sydney’s West,” Mr Roberts said.

“This is an important development and is a win for the people of Western Sydney.”

Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies welcomed the Costco approval and the development of the Oakdale  South  Industrial  Estate  saying  it  would  create  great opportunities for the people of the area.

“Costco Wholesale’s national distribution centre will be a boon for Western Sydney and we look forward to having good jobs for people close to where they live,” Ms Davies said.

Costco Managing Director Patrick Noone said his company was looking forward to making further economic contributions, especially for the people of Western Sydney.

“As we expand  our  business,  we  require  a  larger  facility  to  serve  the  needs  of  our members  here  in  Australia,”  Mr  Noone  said. “This  location  is  ideal  for  housing  our depot and providing hundreds of jobs in Sydney’s booming west.”

Costco’s Kemps Creek headquarter is expected to be completed within 18 months.
