What are the opportunities for the Hunter and Australia out of the Future Made in Australia Act?

Listen to The Melt’s CEO, Trent Bagnall share his insights with Amelia Bernasconi on ABC Upper Hunter regarding the recently unveiled Future Made in Australia Act by the Prime Minister.

This policy signifies a milestone shift in Australian manufacturing and presents notable opportunities for the Hunter Region.

The conversation underscored the Act’s focus on promoting local manufacturing through mechanisms such as tax credits, production incentives and grants.

The Act aims to strengthen our manufacturing sector and regional economies by encouraging businesses to:

🔧manufacture local
🔧employ local
🔧utilise local suppliers for components

Over at The Melt and Muswellbrook Shire Council’s Modern Manufacturing Centre, we’re already helping local manufacturers understand the manufacturing landscape, develop prototypes and connecting businesses with manufacturers to help them scale.
