The government’s Covid-19 fast track consenting process has seen the Sleepyhead Estate in north Waikato granted resource consent for its foam factory, which is expected to be operational in 2023.

The foam factory is the first stage of The Sleepyhead Estate – a $1.2 billion, 178-hectare manufacturing hub and residential community.

It's estimated that the estate will generate more than 1500 new jobs in the region and the company is building 1100 new homes for the workers.

Comfort Group director and developer Craig Turner joined Kerre McIvor.
