From the humble beginnings of renting a floor space out in another company’s factory in Coorparoo in 1959, Stoddart Manufacturing has now completed the development of a new 25,000m2 office, manufacturing and distribution facility in Karawatha (outer Brisbane). Located on 5 hectares (50,000sqm) of land and large enough to house Suncorp Stadium, the $35 million investment is an amalgamation of 4 previous factory locations scattered throughout South-Ea
st Queensland.  Nick named "Stoddart Stadium" due to its impressive size and these stats:
Suncorp fits into it 2.5 times.Stoddart Factory Olympic Stadium fits into it 2 times.
Opera House fits into it 2 times.

On Friday 31st August 2013 Bill Stoddart declared the new location of his family's business as 'open'.

Catering equipment suppliers & Australia's largest steel manufacturer 'Stoddart' will soon unveil their new $35m factory at Berrinba (Logan QLD).
If size matters then this building can house the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Stoddart's team works closely with Food Strategy supplying us with many of your favourite brands ie Halton, Electrolux, Woodson, Culinaire, Koldtech, Metro, Anets, CookTech, Power Soak, Simply Stainless & more.

Stoddart's National Marketing Manager Gareth Hall said "an investment of $35 million was an indication of the confidence the company had in itself and the economy of Logan. After 54 years in the business, we've seen the highs and lows of what happens with the economy and we're still getting orders," Mr Hall said. "We're still selling products and manufacturing products despite all the doom and gloom of the last few years."
He said the company's new Logan address off Wembley Rd was a great spot because of its pr
oximity to the Logan Motorway. "We currently have 333 employees in Queensland of which 289 of those live within a 20km radius of the new site, one of our considerations when moving to Logan." When completed, the new premises will have the capacity and approvals to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The new factory and office area is 192m x 122m and will incorporate four Stoddart plants - three at Sunnybank and one at Crestmead. Mr Hall said it was hoped construction which started last May would be finished by March and the factory operating by June.
