Matched funding totalling approximately $450,000 has been awarded by the state government to 13 Tasmanian businesses under the fifth round of the Advanced Manufacturing Accelerating Growth Program.

According to premier Jeremy Rockliff, the round brought the number of projects funded under the program to 51, with a cumulative $3.5 million in government assistance resulting in “about $ 9.7 million in overall investment”.

Grants ranged from $9,610 to CNC laser, router cutting and engraving job shop Xanderware to the maximum $50,000 amount, which went to six businesses, including to Jayben Group, which “specialises in power train products and light to medium industrial plant and equipment” according to its website.

“A wide variety of advanced manufacturers have been successful in the latest grant round including younger, expanding businesses like Tasman Sea Salt, the Tasmanian Tonic Company and Hale Farm,” said Rockliff in a statement on Thursday.
