Seasol has been announced as the 2,000th member of the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre.
The family-owned organic garden and lawn products manufacturer said that it hoped to tap into the knowledge and contacts among AMGC‘s network to improve its business.
“We aim to enhance Seasol’s efficiency and productivity and respond more quickly to market demands while leveraging the trust we’ve built with our customers locally and abroad. AMGC’s ability for us to collaborate with area experts is something we also wish to explore more,” CEO Alick Osbourne said in a statement.
Seasol employs 60 and manufactures in Victoria, selling throughout Australia and exporting to markets including the USA, India and Vietnam.
Dr Jens Goennemann, AMGC’s managing director, said, “We welcome Seasol to AMGC’s network and we look forward to working with them to advance their business – unlocking productivity, quality and workforce skills gains along the way. Personally I have been a Seasol customer for years, and let me tell you – the grass is greener on my side!”
AMGC was established in 2015 as part of the federal government’s Growth Centres initiative. It is currently a sponsor of this website’s “Technologies and tools for a manufacturing transformation” series.
