Incat Crowther 24m Passenger Ferry

Shipbuilder Incat Crowther has become the 1000th member of the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC). The company, which builds vessels in Australia and abroad, currently has 82 ships under construction in 17 countries, ranging in length from 20 to 125m.

According to Incat Crowther’s, Technical Director, Dr Andrew Tuite: “Incat Crowther is pleased to join AMGC at a time when manufacturing across the globe is evolving to become more advanced and nowhere is this more evident than in Australia.

“AMGC enables us to connect with other Australian manufacturers via its networking events, access the latest research, highlights grant and funding opportunities and allows us to participate in peer learning via the Manufacturing Academy – and it’s all complimentary.

"AMGC is assisting us as we transform the traditional shipbuilding industry into a smart-ship manufacturing sector to meet the challenges of developing bespoke ships for unique operating environments,” Dr Tuite added.

Dr Jens Goennemann, Managing Director of AMGC, said: “Since our foundation, AMGC has been able to build an enviable network of Australian manufacturers who are actively engaged in advancing their industry and workforce skills, and we welcome Incat Crowther to our membership base.

“Over the past four years, AMGC has had the privilege of working across a multitude of sectors. When it comes to advanced manufacturing AMGC uncovers and fosters great examples of Australian manufacturing capabilities to rival any country.

“While all the right signals are there, Australian manufacturers can do more to embrace advanced manufacturing principles. We aim to build an Australian manufacturing industry that is highly skilled and resilient, that competes on value not cost and that manufactures some of the world’s best products,” said Dr Goennemann.
