Take a look at our new publication “Making It In Australia: Our Advanced Manufacturing Future,” released as part of National Manufacturing Week.
The booklet shares a series of local manufacturing showcase stories and offers fascinating insights into the many and varied pathways manufacturers can take on the road to success.
Thousands of innovative manufacturers around the country are tapping new areas of growth and taking their ideas to global markets as technological advances of seismic proportions create new industries, and transform old ones.
The AAMC has been collecting fast facts about Australia and how we compare in advanced manufacturing measures. Many of these show we have the creative talent, the problem solving capacity, and the research infrastructure to build globally competitive high-value manufacturing.
Advanced economies around the world are investing in their knowledge capacity – and increasing the value-density of their manufacturing. The AAMC’s vision is for an Australia ranked in the world’s top advanced manufacturing countries, rich in knowledge intensive industries that drive a diversified sustainable economy.
Formed in 2013 under the auspices of Ai Group, the Australian Advanced Manufacturing Council brings together industry leadership to drive success.
Today AAMC members include some of the best known names in Australian manufacturing: small and medium-sized enterprises like the global ANCA Group, Anatomics, Tomcar and Breseight; aerospace and transport local heroes, Marand, and Quickstep; and Australia’s own multinationals including shipbuilder, Austal, biotech company, CSL, and medical device manufacturer, Cochlear; as well as Australian subsidiaries of global companies like Agilent Technologies, Cook Medical, Northrop Grumman, PPG Industries, GE, Boeing, and Ford; supported by research partners, Swinburne University and CSIRO.
