Directory of Australian Composite Industry Capabilities

2 March 2015

Composites Australia is developing a Directory of Australian Composite Industry Capabilities to support Austrade’s efforts in identifying and developing export opportunities. Listing in the Directory is free.

The Directory will support an export initiative of Composites Australia, CRC-ACS and ACS Australia focusing on the automotive, aerospace, oil & gas, infrastructure and ground transport sectors in Malaysia and Indonesia. The marine sector is also being explored.

Supported by funding from Austrade under the Asian Business Engagement (ABE) Plan, the initiative is based on collaboration and the premise that knowledge and networks are the keys to unlocking export opportunities, says Composites Australia Executive Manager, Ms Kerryn Caulfield.

In a webinar in February, Andrew Beehag of CRC-ACS, provided the composite industry with the findings of scoping missions to the two countries.

“The initiative is based on collaboration and the premise that knowledge and networks are the keys to unlocking export opportunities,” says Ms Caulfield.

“With the lower Australian dollar, the dynamics for international customers purchasing Australian products has changed, making this initiative very timely for composite manufacturers looking to expand into these markets. Organisation of trade missions in May for ‘export ready‘ composite manufacturers is underway and the Directory will be an invaluable tool to support the mission and Austrade’s continuing efforts to build relationships and support opportunities for Australian manufacturers in this region. ”

The initiative is designed to

  • profile Australia’s advanced composites manufacturing technologies, including advanced materials
  • match Australian composite expertise with identified opportunities
  • establish and strengthen relationships with key decision-makers and leaders in the target markets.
