I’m pleased to advise that the new financial year has started well for us albeit with cautious optimism about the 6 months ahead.
Our new team members across Advanced Manufacturing and in various service roles are settling in well and providing us with fresh perspectives, expertise, and innovative ideas.
Appreciation for New Location
Expanding our physical presence to Western Australia was a strategic move and it is going very well. Early feedback from existing and new clients is very reassuring and motivates us to accelerate the addition of technical and sales staff to supplement the talented team we have on the ground already.
Global Talent here on secondment
As some of you may be aware, we have been very fortunate to welcome Gorka Eguiguren as a large plate processing expert, here from Tecoi/Spain for 8 weeks. During his time with us, Gorka has visited many clients in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, and Perth, exploring the art of the possible with innovative Aussie clients. We’re very excited about the possibilities and thank Gorka for sharing his global insights and highly specialised knowledge of large plate processing. This initiative was sponsored by Headland as part of our commitment to bring some of the best and brightest from anywhere across the globe, as thought leaders to enhance AU/NZ manufacturing. Stay tuned for more examples of visiting experts and please never hesitate to share with us topics of interest which may guide our future plans.
Australian PMI and BusinessNZ reports
For the month of July all indices showed further contraction and whilst these can be interpreted as reason for concern, they in fact prove that the reserve bank measures to curb inflation is actually now evident.
