$80 million investment in ‘mega shed’

A 50,000sqm warehouse will be built by Cadence Property Group next to the existing O-I manufacturing facility in Andrews Road, Penrith, allowing O-I to expand operations.

The $80 million development, approved by Council in June, has been described by the Financial Review as a ‘mega shed’ and will help the glass maker to reduce its transfer costs and its carbon emissions.

O-I Glass has agreed to lease the warehouse, which will include material handling equipment, from Cadence for 10 years.

The US based glass maker has had a presence in Penrith since 1971. It produces more than 4 million bottles and jars a day for breweries, wineries and food operators.

Construction will start on the warehouse in September with work expected to continue for 10 months.
