Cobram is set to become a hub for advanced steel beam fabrication and jobs growth, with a new advanced robotic steel beam assembler and crane installed at CG&C Group’s factory.

The new equipment enables the business to create modified steel beams to client’s specifications, with high precision and greater speed.

The project has already generated 24 new jobs and significantly increased the company’s capability, capacity, and competitiveness.
The project is the first part of a two-stage development by CG&C Group.

The second stage is getting underway and will see the purchase of further specialised advanced technology machinery including a band-sawing machine and drilling machine, creating a further 15 jobs.

When the project is completed mid next year, it will increase the groups throughput by 75%, enabling it to better service existing customers and generate new business across Northern Victoria and beyond.

CG&C Group provides services ranging from project management through to design, engineering, modelling, fabrication, and onsite construction.

It’s a partnership between 4 businesses that employ around 80 people at sites in Cobram, Wangaratta, Shepparton, and Wodonga.

CG&C Group Director Damion O’Callaghan said the government’s support was a game changer.

'It’s helping us realise the greater regional economic development outcomes that we’re proud to contribute to Northern Victoria and the Goulburn Valley,' he said.

This project is supported via the Regional Jobs Fund.
