Minister of Social Development Carmel Sepuloni is pleased to announce a partnership between the Ministry of Social Development and Nelson manufacturing and construction company XLam.
“The Ministry of Social Development and Xlam NZ Limited will work together to create entry-level manufacturing and construction opportunities for unemployed clients, especially in the Pre-Fabrication sector,” Minister Sepuloni said.
XLam NZ Limited is a building manufacturing and construction company specialising in laminated timber panels and employs approximately 100 staff across Australasia at their Nelson manufacturing plant, Auckland off-site solutions facility, and in 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.
“This is a win-win situation for everyone involved. It’s a great example where employers partner with government to provide sustainable jobs for our unemployed people.”
