INDUSTRY IN GLADSTONE
Gladstone is home to several world-scale industries including alumina, aluminium, cement, manufacturing, power and Liquified natural gas. It is also home to one of Australia’s largest and busiest deep water ports.
Balancing the needs of industry, the Gladstone community and the natural environment, is what makes Gladstone such a unique town and region.
Gladstone has been the host of heavy industry since 1967. The introduction of heavy industry to the region breathed a new Life into Gladstone and it is now an important contributor to the wealth of Queensland and its people.
The heavy and supporting industries of Gladstone have contributed significantly to the resources of the State, and have provided direct and indirect employment opportunities for tens of thousands of Australians during the Last 50 years.
In order for the benefits of Industry to be retained, the businesses concerned must have a sustainable future. Gladstone Industry must be sustainable in all aspects of their business, including financial, environmental and community.
The changing marketplace and the increased focus on environmental expectations has seen Industry respond with technology and innovation. The result is that many Gladstone companies demonstrate world best-practice – not just in production, but also in their environmental safeguards.
Industry is focused on a more dynamic and innovative future ensuring its and Gladstone’s prosperity for years to come.
