Liverpool City Council has joined the Australian Made Campaign as a Campaign Supporter, citing the region’s increase in exports and emergence as a “manufacturing powerhouse”.
In an announcement on Tuesday, Mayor Ned Mannoun described the council as passionate about local manufacturing, and a drive through “Prestons, Moorebank and other large industrial parks in the area” makes it obvious that Liverpool is a major hub.
The local government area also takes in the Western Sydney International Airport and the aerotropolis city, as well as “strategic sectors” within manufacturing including medical technology and defence.
“Liverpool boasts a varied portfolio of industry including components and equipment manufacturing, food manufacturing and related distribution/packaging, construction related manufacturing as well as newly emerging health equipment and technology related manufacturing,” said Mannoun in a statement.
“The power of the Australian Made logo is immense – not only does [it] demonstrate support for our local industry and its workers but it gives the assurance of quality that comes with locally-made products.
The airport is scheduled to begin operations in 2026, the same year a new, $260 million Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) will open in Bradfield City Centre. The aerotropolis will include an Agri Food Precinct and Advanced Manufacturing hub.
“The city has chosen to leverage the power of the Australian Made logo to actively demonstrate its support for local industry,” added Australian Made Chief Executive Ben Lazzaro of Liverpool’s partnership announcement.
“Every time you buy an Australian Made-branded product you’re not just helping that business, but all the businesses across the supply chain, and most importantly, the local people that they employ.”
The news comes on the second day of Australian Made Week, which is running for its second year.
