Central Western Daily reported that an aluminium products factory is set to take over part of the former Electrolux factory in a AUD 30 million expansion for Orange. Sydney based company A-Tech Australia has bought the entire Electrolux site with plans to occupy part for their own needs and lease the rest of the site to other companies. A-Tech makes aluminium windows, doors and other items for the residential and business industries. It is expected the aluminium factory would create 25 jobs when it is up and running.

A-Tech Australia CEO Mr Charlie Ibrahim said the AUD 30 million expansion in Orange was part of the company's strategy to tackle imports from overseas. He added that "Currently around two-thirds of the local aluminium market [worth AUD 832 million a year] is met by imports from China and Vietnam. By boosting the local aluminium manufacturing industry, home-grown businesses can substitute a significant proportion of these imports with locally-made products.”

He further said that "The first stage of the new facility in Orange will create aluminium products for the building industry, such as components for windows, doors, curtain walls, facades, pergolas and skylights."
