Backing jobs for caravaning industry in Geelong


The Victorian Government is backing Geelong to become regional Victoria’s biggest supplier of Jayco Caravans through support for the expansion of the company’s local dealership.

Prestige Jayco Caravans Geelong is expanding in Newcomb- creating 15 new jobs with support from the Regional Jobs Fund.

Prestige Jayco Caravans Geelong is one of Victoria’s largest motorhome and caravan dealerships which sells, repairs and services up to 1,500 of the vehicles each year.

The local business is investing more than $5 million to redevelop its existing sales centre in Geelong to meet the growing demand.

The redevelopment will see the business construct two new buildings next door to its current sales centre in Newcomb.

The first building will be a pre-delivery and service workshop that will double its capacity to service Jayco vehicles. A new sales and administration centre, combined with a parts and accessories store, will adjoin the new workshop.

The project will create 15 new jobs including workshop technicians, sales and administration staff at Prestige Jayco Caravans Geelong. The new roles are on top of the 41 staff the business already employs at its Geelong site.

The project is also supporting local construction jobs, with Prestige Jayco Caravans Geelong committing to using local trades and materials throughout the build.

The Regional Jobs Fund is part of the Government’s flagship Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund which helps businesses create jobs in regional Victoria, supports community projects and backs councils to build the infrastructure that locals and visitors need.

The Fund is central to the Government’s record investment of more than $36 billion across regional and rural Victoria since 2015.
