The NSW government and GE Additive have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop a 3D printing centre at the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.
NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian is on a week-long tour of the UK and Germany with jobs minister Stuart Ayres. The new agreement was signed during a visit to GE Additive’s Customer Experience Centre at Munich.
According to Berejiklian, the investment would be “a key component of a new space industry hub at the Aerotropolis.”
“Our partnership with GE Additive will create many hi-tech jobs across the aerospace, medical and automotive sectors,” she said in a statement.
The initiative would turn western Sydney into “the centre of 3D printing in Australia,” according to the statement. It follows an MoU signed in London with BAE Systems to become part of the innovation precinct at the aerotropolis.
