The company will be developing its facility near the city of Toowoomba, the regional hub, of the Darling Downs district in South East Queensland known as the ‘Garden City’.
The 75 hectare site is in close proximity to Toowoomba’s Wellcamp Airport, which provides access to international routes and markets. The zoning for the development is deemed code accessible and there is water access for the facility. Toowoomba’s economic role as a regional capital city, agricultural hub, knowledge and research centre, and freight and lostistics hub provide enormous strengths and competitive advantages for Asterion.
The Toowoomba region is supported by the Queensland State Government to expand as a commercial and agricultural hub and encompasses a substantial employment catchment area with highly trained and trainable employees familiar with the agricultural and horticultural sector.
