Quickstep Holdings, a leading manufacturer of carbon-fibre composite components for the aerospace and automotive industries, has received the Premier’s NSW Manufacturing Award for 2015, for outstanding international success by a manufacturer. 

Quickstep will now progress as one of the national finalists for the Australian Manufacturing Award, at the Australian Export Awards, to be held later this month.

Quickstep managing director, Mr David Marino, accepted the award at the annual Export Awards ceremony, held at The Star last week.

“Quickstep is honoured to accept this prestigious award, which helps to differentiate innovative NSW businesses in the highly competitive international market,” said Mr Marino.

“Our aerospace component manufacturing facility in Bankstown, NSW, is 100% dedicated to export manufacturing, and we have 160 staff supporting this activity.”

“Our aerospace component manufacturing sales alone for FY15, delivered $33.7 million in sales, reflecting a 181% increase from FY14, a significant growth in export sales out of our NSW operations.”

Quickstep manufactures advanced composite parts in Australia for export to large prime contractors in the global defence and aerospace industries, including Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and BAE Systems. 

Quickstep has significant expertise in the production of aerospace composite components using conventional autoclave-based manufacturing and has developed “new generation” out-of-autoclave manufacturing technologies, including its proprietary Qure and RST (Resin Spray Transfer) processes for the cost-effective and rapid manufacture of advanced composites in the aerospace, defence and automotive sectors.
