Beginning and ending: Holden
Today, after weeks of uncertainty but with an increasing sense of foreboding, Holden announced that it will cease to make cars in Australia from 2017. Holden, Port Melbourne, Fishermans Bend – inseparable. This is where Australia began its journey into automobile manufacture and where it will end. There will be much more said, but PMHPS wanted to mark this sad day – the implications of which will be felt throughout Victoria in the years to come. 2,900 jobs will be lost: 1600 in Adelaide and 1300 in Victoria.
