Building relationships with the community
A new player in Dubbo’s residential building market has told of its commitment to investing back into the economy and community of the city that had “impressed” it.
Hudson Homes reported welcoming about 100 groups as it opened its display homes at Dubbo on Saturday for the first time.
The business with its headquarters at Parramatta has two display homes located in Southlakes Estate, taking its total to 11 display homes in seven locations.
The home builder already has a presence in the Hunter, Central Coast and Sydney regions, but has made the decision to venture further west.
Hudson Homes general manager Robert Borg said they had chosen Dubbo for its strong economic growth and demand.
“We were impressed by a number of economic factors – and there’s excellent land to build on,” he said.
“We considered other regional locations, and didn’t believe they had the same opportunities.”
Mr Borg reports employing a construction supervisor who is “Dubbo born and bred” and a sales executive who is local.
“We’re focused on using as many Dubbo people for trades and suppliers as possible,” he said.
“We see we need to invest back into the economy and the way to do that is to employ local trades and suppliers.”
The general manager also reported Hudson Homes had sponsored a junior sporting team in Dubbo.
“We sponsor in every area we operate in to support the local community,” he said.
Western Plains Regional Council administrator Michael Kneipp was in attendance at the opening of the new display homes, and Mr Borg said there had been several sales made at the weekend.
