New Zealand Minister of Social Development Carmel Sepuloni has announced a partnership between XLam NZ Ltd and the Ministry of Social Development. “The Ministry of Social Development and Xlam will work together to create entry-level manufacturing and construction opportunities for unemployed clients, especially in the Pre-fabrication sector,” Minister Sepuloni said. As a prefabricated building manufacturing and construction company XLam now employs approximately 100 staff across Australasia at the Nelson manufacturing plant, the Auckland off-site solutions facility, and the Albury, Australia manufacturing plant.
“Xlam NZ will provide training and support to our clients in the manufacture of pre-fabricated buildings with opportunities for on-site assembler roles,” Minister Sepuloni said. “This agreement is just one of the ways the Government is showing its commitment to getting people into meaningful and sustainable employment. This is particularly important in high demand areas like building and construction”.
