Doors to open on the future of advanced manufacturing in Queensland


Some of Queensland’s leading advanced manufacturers will next month open their doors to the public, hosting behind-the-scenes, expert-guided tours of their facilities.

Inside Advanced Manufacturing, running 20-24 May, will showcase and share insights around the innovative manufacturing techniques and technologies helping Queensland manufacturers thrive.

Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said the events would help fellow manufacturers learn from early adopters while promoting collaboration between businesses.

“This brand-new initiative will celebrate advance manufacturing across Queensland and shine a light on some of our manufacturers of the future,” Mr Dick said.

“Cutting-edge processes, technologies and systems will all be on show, with questions encouraged and knowledge to gain.”

Award-winning Logan-based manufacturer Evolve Group will kick off Inside Advanced Manufacturing with the first public site tour of their facility 9am, Monday 20 May.

In conjunction with the event series, a video has also been produced, in partnership with the Gateway to Industry Schools Program, to promote advanced manufacturing careers to Queensland students.

“Manufacturing continues to drive the Queensland economy forward, and our progress in the advanced manufacturing space is crucial to ensure the sector’s future success,” Mr Dick said.

“In the 12 months to December 2018, manufacturing was the number one growth sector when it came to employment in Queensland, and we’re eager to push this work further to create more jobs in our state.

“We recognise many of Queensland’s manufacturers are at different stages on their advanced manufacturing journey. Through Inside Advanced Manufacturing we want to help raise the bar right across the board.

“The Palaszczuk Government is proud to support Queensland manufacturers and we’re excited to promote some of our state’s success stories, for the benefit of the sector and the goal of a stronger economy.”
