Industrial areas in Welshpool and Canning Vale attracted investment in the late 1960's. Since then, both areas have grown and evolved into two of Perth's premier industrial areas. Five industry sectors dominate these two industrial hubs - Manufacturing, Construction, Wholesale Trade, Mining and Transport Postal & Warehousing. Collectively they contribute to almost 70% of the City’s gross output of nearly $20 billion, providing more than 50% of the City's 65,000 full time jobs.
