The opening of Tuapeka Gold Print's new factory in
Fairfield is welcome news for the Taieri community, Mosgiel
Business Association president Blair Arthur says.
Production started at the company's new factory, at the
former Taieri Print site in Chadwick St, on Monday.
Tuapeka managing director Brad Houghton said this week he was
confident the company, formerly based in Lawrence, would
grow, creating more jobs.
Mr Arthur said having a growing company move into the area
was good news.
''All new businesses are always welcome here, and we are
pleased to see them set up.
''It's good for the community as well because obviously the
employment opportunities and everything else.''
It was also possible some of the staff who commuted to and
from Lawrence each day would decide to move to the area.
It would also offset job losses at Taieri Print which
occurred after it merged with Wickliffe.
