Spring is here and while many of us are in lockdown to varying degrees, it’s great to see so many Australian manufacturing businesses and major projects thriving in these challenging conditions.
In this edition of Capability News, we bring you five good (great!) news stories from around the country.
South Australian companies Smart Fabrication, Ingenia and Dematac Automation have set up innovative teaming agreement to win big in the booming SA defence sector. It’s a little different from usual subcontracting arrangements in that the team presents a united front from the start of the tender process.
Similarly, Australian cable manufacturer, Nexans Olex, is working in a consortium with international companies to provide the renewable sector with an entirely new process to design, install and commission cables.
Over in the west, specialist valves business, Profluid, has won contracts worth more the $2.5 million on the Waitsia Stage 2 Development by demonstrating local content value add and leveraging ICN’s process.
Northern Territory electrical contractor MEC NT has likewise used ICN NT and Gateway to win multi-million-dollar defence contracts and boost its workforce in both Darwin and Katherine.
Meanwhile, more than 200 local and regional businesses in NSW are working on one of the country’s largest ever freight rail infrastructure projects. Inland Rail will travel through three states, linking Melbourne with Brisbane. ICN in all three states is helping the Australian Rail Track Corporation identify and connect with local suppliers.
We also bring you news of our partnership with the Australian Made Campaign, as well as our new and improved Gateway offering, and work with ADEO. The new Australian Defence Export Office Pitch Training Program is set to help SMEs refine their business pitch and differentiate themselves from the competitors.
ICN Limited Executive Director Warren Jansen joined an expert group of panelists for the CyberCX Solution Spotlight series, to discuss the Authority to Operate on AWS program (ATO on AWS), designed to simplify and accelerate security and compliance processes for customers deploying workloads on AWS.
Finally, we farewell long-term ICN QLD manager, and our Chair for the past 5 years, Mike Swart. Mike has been a huge asset to our network and I am humbled to be stepping into his shoes.
Chair, ICN Executive Directors
