MadeinQld GrantState grant brings lasers to Gold Coast company

Gold Coast specialist manufacturer Emery Industries is set to become more competitive overseas by increasing productivity up to 200 per cent, thanks to a $135,500 Palaszczuk Government grant.
Minister for State Development Dr Anthony Lynham said Emery Industries would use the Made in Queensland grant to install a fibre laser cutter.

“This technology is designed to cut reflective materials to slash the processing time for products ranging from stainless steel trolleys, height adjustable tables and medical products,” Dr Lynham said.

“The combination of Emery Industries’ vision and the State Government’s investment means their eight employees will have secure, highly-skilled jobs into the future.
“This factory transformation will ensure Emery is internationally competitive.”

The family-owned Gold Coast company has been operating for 15 years.
Queensland’s $20 billion manufacturing sector already employs 169,000 people. The Palaszczuk Government has a 10-year plan to transition the state’s manufacturing sector to more advanced manufacturing high-paid, knowledge-based jobs.

“Upskilling our workforce is an important part of this program and with the introduction of this technology employees of Emery Industries will be achieving just that,” Dr Lynham said.

“This is just another example of the strong appetite for innovation in Queensland’s manufacturing industry.”
