A message from Jens Goennemann
Our growing membership base is evidence that the conversation around manufacturing in Australia has completely shifted. It is out of the question if we need manufacturing! Rather, it is the question how do we advance manufacturing?
AMGC recently celebrated a significant milestone; we now have 1,000 members.
Incat Crowther—a manufacturer of marine craft across commercial, military and civilian sectors—was the 1,000th company to join our national network of manufacturers.
There is also a qualitative dimension to our expanding membership numbers. The constituents of our 1,000 strong member base are stepping up and pushing the envelope for advanced manufacturing in Australia. More Australian manufacturers are looking to collaborate, to become more resilient and highly skilled, and to compete on value, rather than cost.
This is just the tip of the iceberg—the movement to advance manufacturing is a movement that cannot be stopped.
The value of AMGC membership
We support Australian manufacturers in commercialising their ideas. Through our projects, we encourage deeper collaboration between industry and research partners for greater commercial outcomes, increase connections into global supply chains, and promote the development of advanced skills. See our AMGC column for a few highlights of our project outcomes doing well in the US.
We provide matched funding to help Australian manufacturers move an idea more quickly to larger-scale research or commercialisation. So far, this funding is expected to result in over 1,500 new jobs and up to $580 million in revenue.
