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

The COVID-19 Manufacturer Response Register portal is live now with all contact treated in strict confidence.

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

Australian manufacturers across multiple disciplines have already pivoted or expressed a desire to support in any way possible to address the current COVID-19 threat.

For those Australian manufacturers wishing to assist, but unsure of where to start, this portal will allow others to gain a clear understanding of the skills, supplies and capabilities that exist right now, and potentially connect with the right government department or manufacturer.
