Just 15 minutes from Henderson and 25 minutes from Perth, Fremantle is on the doorstep of the trade coast and home to some of Australia’s biggest suppliers to WA’s growing manufacturing and logistics sector.

With new premium office space coming online among a vibrant cosmopolitan destination, Fremantle is the only choice when doing business on the trade coast. 

The South West Metropolitan Region (Trade Coast) is one of the most growing, productive and diverse sub-regions of the Perth Metropolitan Region.

With a population of 419,200 residents (June 2015), Gross Regional Product (GRP) of almost $24 billion (NIEIR, 2015) and a population growth rate averaging 3.2% per annum over the last five years (ABS, 2015), the region is well positioned to accommodate growth and provide employment and business development opportunities for existing and new businesses.

Manufacturing is the largest industry sector in the region, increasing by over 8% in the last five years and currently employing 22,190 people. The most recent industry data gathered in 2014/15 recorded Manufacturing output above $13 billion, with value add and local sales being $2.9 billion and $2.5 billion respectively.
