The high costs of running a business in the city has seen an increasing number of businesses set up shop in country towns. Proving that location is no barrier to a national market, these businesses are running very successful nationwide operations while taking full advantage of cheaper land and services in regional areas.

One such business, Allshelter, is located in the town of Lake Cargelligo in the north of the Riverina region – the centre of NSW. It is strategically placed close to all the major transport routes to best service all of Australia and beyond. They manufacture high quality relocatable weather protection systems for the Aviation, Mining and Rural industries throughout Australia and also export to the Pacific region.

In the past 12 years a number of businesses have commenced in or relocated to Lake Cargelligo, resulting in further employment opportunities for local people and a need for specific skills in metals manufacturing.

Responding to the increased demand and based on ongoing discussions with Allshelter, Riverina Institute of TAFE introduced additional Metal Fabrication and Welding qualifications to support the growth in the town.

“We have a great relationship with our local campus, here at Lake Cargelligo,” said Allshelter’s Production Manager Russell Reddel. “We talked with them about our needs and they responded.”

“Our apprentices now attend our local TAFE campus where they receive excellent training. Prior to that, our apprentices were travelling to Griffith for training. They no longer have to travel big distances and as a result they are more focused and learn quicker.”

“I encourage businesses to talk with their local TAFE about their needs. If they don’t know what you need how can they provide it? So don’t be afraid to raise your ideas and let them know exactly what you want,” added Mr Reddel.
