Adjournment: Kingfield Galvanizing

Ros SPENCE (Yuroke) My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Industry and Employment, and the action I seek is that the minister join me for a visit to Kingfield Galvanizing in Somerton. Recently the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change toured the local business with me. The business won one of the 2017 Premier’s Sustainability Awards for their automated galvanising plant, which produces some of the lowest emissions of any such plant in the Southern Hemisphere. Kingfield Galvanizing have also benefited from being a recipient of one of the Andrews Labor government’s Boosting Business Productivity grants. I am sure the minister would be interested in seeing Kingfield Galvanizing’s innovative work in action and of course hearing about how they are growing local jobs, and I look forward to him joining me for a visit soon.


I have pleasure in responding to the member for Yuroke on her adjournment matter. It would be my pleasure to come out and visit Kingfield Galvanizing in Somerton to see firsthand why they won the Premier’s Sustainability Award for their automated galvanising plant and to support the member in her endeavours to support local manufacturers. I know the member for Yuroke has been a great supporter of the Dulux factory in her electorate and D’Orsogna, the smallgoods meatworks. I would also like to take the opportunity to congratulate Sussex Taps, also in Somerton, on being part of our Victorian Made campaign.

The Hon Ben Carroll MP
Minister for Industry and Employment
