Senior federal opposition shadow minister Tanya Plibersek recently visited the DECO Australia facility to learn about the company’s innovative products as well as gain a greater understanding of Australian manufacturing capabilities.
The visit was a prime opportunity to discuss government policies affecting Australian businesses and manufacturing, raise awareness of local manufacturing and demonstrate DECO’s extraordinary range of innovations and the outstanding capabilities of Australian SMEs.
“The more government bodies are aware of what local businesses can do for them, the better equipped they are to specify quality, Australian-made materials and products in future projects,” said DECO director Ross Doonan.
“This benefits the local economy, as it can stimulate job growth and skills development. We need to encourage Governments to choose Australian products and services with the consistently high standards of quality and innovation that local Australian-owned businesses are known for.”
