The Australian government has announced a $260 million investment in a full-scale Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) to be built in Western Sydney. 

This is a shared-use research facility that will be located on the doorstep of the new Western Sydney International Airport. 

The AMRF will provide world-class research facilities and infrastructure for high-tech manufacturing, making it an ideal location for businesses to invest in and create jobs. 

Western Sydney is home to a number of major manufacturing businesses, and this investment will help to further develop the region as a hub for high-tech manufacturing.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said the AMRF will be at the leading edge of Australia’s advanced manufacturing revolution helping to strengthen our economy now and into the future.

“We are securing a brighter future of our families and our country, right here in Western Sydney,” Mr Perrottet said.

“The NSW Government is building what matters to make Western Sydney an even better place to live, work, learn, play and raise a family,” he added.  

Stuart Ayres, Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade and Minister for Western Sydney,  said that the AMRF will bring positive changes to Western Sydney in terms of job creation and investment opportunities. The support that the AMRF provides will allow manufacturers in Western Sydney to keep up with the latest trends and technologies, making them more competitive on a global scale. 

This will eventually lead to more jobs and higher wages for workers in the area. In addition, the presence of the AMRF will attract more businesses and entrepreneurs to Western Sydney, further boosting the local economy. 

The full-scale Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) will be the focal point of the new Bradfield City Centre, the 115ha urban and employment area next to the airport.

As the NSW Government continues to invest in Western Sydney, businesses and researchers in the region are poised to benefit from access to some of the most advanced manufacturing technologies in the world. 

The arrival of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) in Western Parkland City is an exciting opportunity for companies as it will provide a platform for testing new technologies and scaling up production to commercial levels. 

In addition, the $23 million packages of tenders for advanced manufacturing equipment will ensure that the AMRF is equipped with the latest technology.
