Advanced Manufacturing

Transformative thinking to lead the world to a better future.

Tasmanian inventiveness has made us global leaders.

Making high quality, world leading products for ourselves and advanced world markets.


Tasmania is already 100% powered by renewable electricity so anything made here will likely have a lower carbon footprint than if produced anywhere else in the world.


We invented and reinvented. We tapped into a spirit that embraces where we live. That uses our remote and rugged landscape and our isolation as an asset. We embraced a way of ‘thinking and doing’ that isn’t based on volume – It’s based on quality and inventiveness.


There are more than 600 manufacturers in Tasmania employing more than 18,000 Tasmanians. We’ll need 4,500 more within 3 years from all walks of life covering areas such as research, design and development, distribution, logistics, operations, maintenance through to precision welders.

Smarter, cleaner, more durable, renewable.
