One of the persistent themes of the night was the strong growth in Australian Manufacturing. So good news there. Our thanks go to Manufacturers’ Monthly for running the awards and supporting Australian manufacturers as strongly as they do.

Australian Manufacturing is Growing

Australian Manufacturing PMI

It is official. For the past three months Australian Manufacturing has grown each month. This has been confirmed by both AMTIL and Manufacturers’ Monthly.


This is in spite of weak demand in the metals sector. It is good to see some resilience showing as the manufacturing sectors diversify.


Australian PMI for September 2015

Australian PMI

The primary data comes from the Australian Industry Group Australian Performance of Manufacturing Index (Australian PMI). This is a numerical measure of manufacturing output and numbers above 50 indicate growth and numbers below 50 indicate decline.


So some good news for us all.

Manufacturers’ Monthly Endeavour Awards Finalists 2014

Manufacturers’ Monthly Endeavour Awards 2014

I recently spotlighted the Endeavour Awards which are held on the first evening of National Manufacturing Week. This is where we celebrate manufacturing success stories each year. What I didn’t mention at the time was that we had entered this year for the first time.


The awards are run by Manufacturers’ Monthly who also select the categories, finalists and ultimately the winners. They were first held in 2007. We have already been asked a few times if they were named after us. And the answer is that this is a pure coincidence. So a nice synchronicity but no relation.


Technology Application of the Year

We have just received the news that we are finalists in the category of Technology Application of the Year. The technology we put forward was our Production Test Technology that allows us to put in place product test end of line equipment at as little as 5% of the cost of other approaches that are more commonly used. This is one way we help Australian Electronics Manufacturers to be able to have a cost competitive product that is still Made in Australia.

The full list of finalists is available at Endeavour Awards 2014 Finalists. There were a record 138 entries this year.


We won’t know the final outcome until 13th May 2014 when the Endeavour Awards Presentation Dinner is held at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney. Either way we already feel like winners.


Wish us luck.
