$35m Rand Refrigerated Logistics food distribution centre at Direk creates 100+ jobs

Rand logisiticsMORE than a hundred jobs will be created at Direk next month when Rand Refrigerated Logistics’ 10,500 sq m $35 million food distribution centre opens.

The project is the latest addition to the Vicinity industrial estate at the corner of Heaslip and Edinburgh roads, which is being developed by Walker Corporation.

Walker Corporation national industry manager Claire Boenne said more companies were looking to Adelaide’s north, which would result in increased employment opportunities.

She said cheap land in comparison to the rest of Adelaide, coupled with and Salisbury and Elizabeth’s proximity to Port Adelaide, made it an attractive place to do business.

She said the estate would eventually be home to about 4000 workers.

“The ripple effect of this employment in the surrounding area has already been profound, creating hundreds more jobs in companies which supply or contract to companies now located at Vicinity,” Ms Boenne said.
