Smeaton Grange, New South Wales
Out at NSW’s manufacturing heartland, Western Sydney, visiting ASX-listed Laserbond. I get out a bit, but don’t visit many companies with such a laser-like focus on surface engineering. I was blown away by their development of in-house technologies, their investment in new processes and upskilling their workers, and how hard they’re thinking about the future. One of the chaps in this pic is from the Australian Space Agency, and Laserbond is certainly interested in Australian manufacturing’s journey upwards. Ad astra!
