To support the growth of regional manufacturers, $30 million has been invested into regional Manufacturing Hubs in Townsville, Cairns and Rockhampton. Each hub will provide a place for local manufacturing businesses to receive expert advice and support to transition to advanced manufacturing through world-leading technologies.

The hubs will develop strong links with local universities, schools and TAFE Queensland to develop a workforce with strong skills in science, technology, engineering and maths.

Services available at the hubs include:
