The Natural Gift Carriers has invested one million dollars into a new concrete block and pavement manufacturing plant.
The new factory was opened by Infrastructure Minister, Parveen Bala in Vunimoli, Labasa yesterday.
The machines can manufacture twenty blocks in a minute and one two hundred blocks in an hour.
There will be six different types of pavement blocks manufactured at the factory.
The company provides fleet to the Fiji Sugar Corporation and the Labasa Town Council.
Bala says the government has provided the incentives through tax cuts helping businesses grow.
“What you are witnessing today is the basis of the foundation of commercial economy in Fiji. Hard work of small family run companies reaps rewards and we have expansion as we see before us today.”
