Portal for Australian manufacturers and individuals to register their support for COVID-19 response

Yesterday, the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC) introduced a portal for Australian manufacturing, component suppliers and skilled design, engineering and manufacturing staff to register their interest and core competencies in support of the national response to COVID-19.

So far the response of Australian businesses and individuals to the current COVID-19 pandemic has been outstanding, with manufacturers shifting focus to how they can support our health and critical manufacturing sectors during this unprecedented event.

Many manufacturers across multiple disciplines have already expressed a desire to support in any way possible actions to address the current COVID-19 threat. Examples include distillers moving to produce hand-sanitisers, automotive manufacturers exploring the design and manufacturer of ventilators, fabricators moving to supply of medical goods, or current manufacturers responding to increased demand for goods.
