Network's focus is on its growth
IT HAS undergone a lot of changes in the past year but that hasn’t stopped the Australian Industry and Manufacturing Network from surging forward.
That’s the opinion of general manager Peter Gregory, who this month addressed the network’s annual meeting in Maryborough.
“AIEMnet has undergone a lot of changes since a change in management in February this year including a new fresher image, new web site, several new member benefits and services and a new office location,” he said.
AIEMnet is a not-for-profit industry based network with most of its members based in the Wide Bay, Sunshine Coast, Cooloola and south east Queensland.
Mr Gregory said it was aimed at securing additional work for the region and building economic growth.
“We have also built very strong relationships with regional councils, government and like industry associations across Queensland.
“We have picked up 14 new members and completed several programs for the Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation.”
He added that AIMnet was “pleased to have just received a grant from the Department of Environment and Resource Management to start a Climate Smart Business Cluster on the Fraser Coast”.
“Economic benefit and employment outcomes are out strong focus and we will continue to work with out industries to make out regions stronger.”
