Last week (14 December), we hosted the Leader of the Liberal Party VIC, Hon Matthew Guy MP, and Shadow Minister for Industry, Bridget Vallence MP, at our Mitcham factory. We provided his team with a tour of our manufacturing facility and shared how manufacturing has changed and grown over the past decade.
Earlier this month, on Monday, 6 December 2021, the Victorian Liberal Nationals announced the Bringing Manufacturing Home program, where $2.5 billion will be invested into the Victorian manufacturing sector to underpin a new wave of opportunity. This will be the largest investment in manufacturing in Victoria’s history, and a very significant announcement for our future.
The Bringing Manufacturing Home program will focus on priority areas of strategic importance for the future, including:
- Health & Medicine
- Defence, Transport, Aerospace Technology
- Food, Fibre and Beverages
- Rare Earth and Mineral Processing
- Clean Energy, Zero Emissions and Recycling
- Digital Transformation
