New tool to support Aussie manufacturers

The Morrison Government is supporting Australia’s manufacturers to innovate, with the launch today of a new online resource which will help them grow and create new jobs.

The Manufacturing Academy is an initiative of the Government’s Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC).

Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said the new resource is just one way the Morrison Government is boosting the capability and competitiveness of Australia’s manufacturing sector.

“Australia’s manufacturing industry is a key driver of our economy and the Morrison Government is committed to improving the competitive advantage of our businesses so they can thrive in global markets and create more high skill jobs,” Minister Andrews said. 

“The online Manufacturing Academy offers free education to all manufacturers anywhere, anytime and on any device. It is delivered by manufacturers for manufacturers.

“This tool recognises that small and medium sized businesses often don’t have the capacity or money to spend on developing their business.

“There are six targeted training modules focused on competitiveness, resilience, workforce, product value, exports and state of manufacturing.”

Established by the Coalition Government in 2015, AMGC is designed to connect local manufacturers to global supply chains, lift managerial and workforce skills and improve sector-wide collaboration. 

It is implementing over 40 collaborative projects with a total value of more than $33 million to demonstrate best practice for new manufacturing technologies and processes.
