This new International headquarters will service the demands of the company's global infrastructure projects that the group is rolling out in countries such as Indonesia, Brazil, the United States and India, as well as ongoing work within Australia.

GRT Managing Director Ben Skinner said that the selection of the new site was due to both the logistical and commercial considerations of the business.

"GRT's new global hub will allow us to grow scale for our manufacturing operations while also providing us a centralised base for our logistical and commercial needs, to meet growing global demand for our products and services," said Mr Skinner.

"This site ticks all of the boxes for us by providing us the opportunity to boost production of our polymer dust suppression and road stabilization material, while also giving us proximity to the Port of Brisbane for shipping purposes and space to fit our rapidly growing workforce.

"As our operations now span South America, South East Asia, North America and India it became important for us to create a 'global HQ' to meet the demand for our services from our global roster of clients and partners."

Ray White Commercial, Queensland – Director, Sales & Leasing Mr. Paul Horsburgh worked closely with GRT over a number of months to identify sites that would meet the logistical and business needs of the firm.

"With a site area of 9340sqm, 1 – 5 Union Circuit, Yatala meets the client brief perfectly, as the site provides a growing infrastructure and manufacturing business the capacity to grow," Mr Horsburgh said.

"The site was leased at $365,000p.a. net plus outgoings and the lease is for a six-year term – a significant industrial lease in the Yatala area which is enjoying a recent resurgence in leasing activity.

"This site is well-suited for the tenant in that they can house their commercial and manufacturing operations in one location due to its scale – 466sqm of office, 1915sqm of high-end fully ducted warehouse, 260sqm of workshop and wash bay area and 43,400sqm of concreted hardstand area."
