Shire of Harvey
The Shire of Harvey is in the grip of a population boom, with growth primarily in and around the Australind townsite. Large scale retail developments and further subdivisions are planned for the rapidly expanding suburb of Treendale.
Located within the shire is the Kemerton Industrial Park. The park is home to the operations of a number of major companies including the world's second-largest producer of titanium dioxide Cristal Global, infrastructure provider Transfield Services, high-grade silicon producer Simcoa, and Kemerton Silica Sands.
Horticulture is a significant industry in the shire, with processing plants value adding to the sector. Another major employer in the Harvey area is export beef abattoir Harvey Beef.
