Why Loddon Mallee?
The owners at Global Roto-Moulding say setting up shop in Mildura was the only option. “We find that lots of the innovation, especially in agriculture, comes out of regional areas and, as such, it wouldn’t make sense for us to be anywhere else,” says Larissa Lloyd-Ward .
“Our business thrives on innovation – it’s the key to what we do. It’s the most important part of our business, but it also makes up a large percentage of our work. We love nothing more than someone having a great idea that we can help turn into a reality.”
“We’ve been able to access key funding for training, business growth and machinery over the years, which we don’t believe would be possible without the support of the government representatives that take an interest in our business.”
“Make a plan, come and visit, connect with the various business networks before you make the move and they will be able to help you connect with others to make your business thrive. Make sure you connect with local and state governments and see what grants and help they can offer you before you start the process.”
“At Global we prefer to employ on attitude rather than qualifications as if you have a good attitude you can be taught anything!”
– Larissa Lloyd-Ward, Director
