Manufacturing Myths

Myth I

Manufacturing is a dying industry


Advanced Manufacturing employs 18,000 Tasmanians already and we’ll need 4500 more over the next 3 years.

Myth II

Tasmania is way behind on clean energy


Tasmania has already reached net zero, and with 100% renewable electricity it means things made here likely have a lower footprint.

Myth III

Tassie’s too small to make a positive difference


Our industries want to help the world reduce its carbon footprint. For example Copper is critical for electric vehicles so it’s in high demand, and it’s mined sustainably right here in Tasmania.

Myth IV

These are mens jobs


That’s traditionally been the history, but there’s no such thing as a mans job and the careers available are very diverse.
