The project involves reactivating the disused Electrolux and former Orange saleyard sites.
Currently this industrial estate has a focus on heavy industry and mining services. The expanded precinct will increase the supply of industrial land that’s accessible to major highways, railway lines and air transport. (The Orange Airport is capable of landing up to A320 and B737 jets).
The expansion will allow Orange to meet continuing demand for industrial space for advanced manufacturing, mining and agri-tech, as well as accommodate the growing demand for advanced health and medical manufacturing that will result from the creation of the nearby Life Sciences Precinct.
