Two new Regional Manufacturing Hubs in Mackay and on the Gold Coast will soon provide local manufacturers with expert advice and support as they look to grow their business and expand into new markets and create secure, long term local jobs.

Building on the success of existing Manufacturing Hubs in Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton and Gladstone, these newest additions to the Regional Manufacturing Hub Network will help deliver regional growth right across the state.

The Mackay Hub will be located at the Resource Centre of Excellence in Paget, while the Gold Coast Hub will be located in Nerang and help to deliver new jobs and new investment for each region.

These commitments for two new manufacturing hubs are over a three-year period and will give the opportunity for manufacturers in the Mackay and Gold Coast areas to become more productive and create the jobs of the future.

The Regional Manufacturing Hub Network supports manufacturers to adopt new technologies, including robotics and autonomous systems, develop skills and training, and access new supply chain opportunities.

The new hubs will be operational by 2021 and with a new round of the Manufacturing Hubs Grant Program open by August 2021.
