Monsoon Irrigators

An irrigation company in New South Wales has received a $150,000 grant from the New South Wales Government to support creating new jobs in the Mid North Coast regional area and allow the company to invest in plant and equipment for manufacturing.

Monsoon Irrigators Australia has received the grant as part of the New South Wales Government’s Regional Job Creation Fund.

New South Wales Member for Coffs Harbour, Gurmesh Singh, said the Coffs Coast company, which is also celebrating 30 years of operation, will be able to create eight new jobs because of the grant.

“Since 1992, Monsoon Irrigators has been constructing, supplying and servicing quality hose reel sprinkler gun irrigators, low pressure boom irrigators, and electric and diesel farm irrigation pumps,” Mr Singh said.

“I’m extremely pleased the Regional Job Creation Fund is supporting Monsoon Irrigators with its new project of developing a high corrosion resistant Pivot Irrigator with the use of aluminium and stainless steel to withstand the harsh Australian conditions. 

“This project will see the installation of plant and equipment to produce this new product line.

“The hard-working team has always taken pride in offering dedicated solutions for farm irrigation, while at the same time supporting locally owned and operated companies as much as possible.”

New South Wales Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional New South Wales, Paul Toole, said the New South Wales Government’s $140 million Regional Job Creation Fund is on track to create over 6,500 new direct jobs in regional New South Wales by helping businesses expand production and provide incentives to move operations to the bush.

“The Regional Job Creation Fund continues to attract new investment from businesses and enable economic recovery across agriculture, manufacturing and tourism industries, and ensure they continue to thrive now and into the future,” Mr Toole said.

An additional $100 million for the Regional Job Creation Fund was included in the 2022/23 State Budget.
