AMTIL appoints new president

 

Paul Fowler … impressive track record

Paul Fowler, a director of Dimac Tooling, has been appointed president of The Australian Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited (AMTIL).
 
With its headquarters in Melbourne, AMTIL is a national body representing the interests of manufacturing technology suppliers and users within the precision engineering and advanced manufacturing sector.
 
Mr Fowler will be responsible for strategically leading AMTIL’s operational initiatives in developing and expanding new and existing projects aimed at improving the performance and output of Australia’s advanced manufacturing industry. 
 
Together with CEO Shane Infanti and the AMTIL Board, Mr Fowler will lead the Institute’s continuing efforts to provide services around education and training, innovation and market access for Australia’s manufacturing businesses.
 
“It is important that we continue to provide services around education and training, innovation and market access,” Mr Fowler says. “Having the right skill set and the right technology builds capability which, when presented with opportunity, builds businesses."
 
Mr Fowler boasts an impressive track record, serving more than 8 years as Director at Australia’s leading supplier of accessories and workholding solutions Dimac Tooling in Victoria. He has been a member of the AMTIL Board since 2008 and succeeds Pat Boland, co-founder and Director of CNC tool and cutter grinder manufacturer ANCA Pty Ltd.
 
Established in 1999, the not-for-profit organisation is the voice of the advanced precision
 
manufacturing sector, and the number of services on offer is continually expanding.
 
Mr Fowler takes over the reins of the manufacturing association at a time when a growing number of companies in Australia get ready to get involved in major international projects and are gearing up to face competition from not only Asia, but also Europe and the US.
 
"The AMTIL Board will direct much of their focus to developing a more strategic and longer-term view towards the changing landscape within the precision manufacturing sector,” says Mr Fowler.
