The AMGC announced on Monday project funding for Quickstep Holdings (ASX:QHL), a manufacturer of advanced carbon fibre composites. This investment will aid in the development of a competitive carbon composite fender for the European automotive market. The project has the potential to generate export revenue in excess of $25 million and see the increase in demand for more high-value jobs in the Geelong area.
