Coalition visits KOR facility


KOR Equipment Solutions recently received a visit from Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Minister for Employment Stuart Robert and Federal Member of Chisholm Gladys Liu at the facility in Mulgrave, Victoria.

The visit was intended to help promote the Coalition’s focus on job creation and skills training ahead of the 2022 election. 

KOR managing director Stephen Pewtress introduced the ministers and Member for Chisholm before their address on 4 February. 

During the announcement, Morrison said the Coalition wants to push higher investment, job creation and wage growth to contribute to better standards of living across Australia. 

“That is the economic plan that is driving Australia’s unemployment rate to below four per cent,” said Morrison.

“That is the economic plan that has ensured we’ve been able to maintain our AAA credit rating, one of only nine countries in the world to do so, particularly during the course of this pandemic. 

“That is the economic plan that is taking us forward to see more jobs and more investment backed up by investment allowances and research and development tax concessions, that is enabling businesses to find new solutions.” 

Earlier this month, Morrison’s government announced a new $1.6 billion economic accelerator to develop businesses and build Australia’s economic resilience. 

KOR thanked the Prime Minister for his visit, stating that job trainer initiatives under the Coalition are helping the company to grow across Australia’s regions. 

“Thank you Scott Morrison, Stuart Robert and Gladys Liu for taking the time to see first hand why KOR has continued to expand under a pandemic,” a KOR spokesperson said. 

A transcript of the address from Mulgrave is available here.
