The Australian Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited (AMTIL) has appointed Pat Boland as its new president.

Mr Boland will be responsible for strategically leading AMTIL’s operational initiatives in developing and expanding new and existing projects aiming to improve the performance and output of Australia’s advanced manufacturing industry.

Mr Boland brings extensive experience in Australia’s machine tool industry as co-founder and Director of one of the world’s leading CNC grinding machine manufacturers, ANCA Pty Ltd.

Outgoing President Di Kloe will continue to serve as a director on the Association’s Board.

“The future of Australia’s manufacturing industry is dependent on our investment in high productivity flexible machine tools, in building the skills of our workforce to operate and program these machines and in our management to integrate them into lean manufacturing systems,” Mr Boland says.

“Australian industry needs to be built on high-tech, innovative, niche manufacturing. High performance machine tools are the essential foundations. As a country Australia faces a problem. We are just not buying enough machine tools to safeguard our manufacturing future.”
