Economic Development

Hitachi announce $100 million development for Forrestdale Business Park

The City of Armadale business community continues to surge forward as new businesses establish themselves in the business, retail and commercial hotspot.

Forrestdale Business Park (FBP) is experiencing a surge in development, with multi-national manufacturing giant Hitachi Construction Machinery bringing its headquarters to Forrestdale.

Hitachi will become a landmark anchor-tenant in Forrestdale Business Park (West) and will attract associated and complementary businesses to the Park.

The City’s exponential population growth, investment affordability and centralised location has made the City a hub for retail, commercial and industrial business opportunities. Hitachi were looking for a Greenfield site of 100,000m2 to build a state-of-the-art facility.

Although there were competing locations, FBP’s strategic location adjacent to Tonkin Highway, the facility is conveniently accessible to surrounding major industrial areas, including Perth Airport, Fremantle Port and Kwinana, set FBP apart.

Hitachi’s FBP location will be four times larger than Hitachi’s current Welshpool site.

Forrestdale Business Park has become a focus of commercial and industrial activity for the City, providing many jobs for the community and economic stimulus throughout the wider community.

The City is expecting immense growth from the precinct which is expected to establish itself as the heart of commerce and industry for the Southeast Corridor.
