Words by Kylie Knight

Manufacturers and industry organisations from across the region will get together make new connections, share recent achievements and challenges, and deepen supply chain opportunities during a networking event next week.

The first in the Manufacturing Business Networking Series for this financial year is on August 24 and will be the fourth staged by Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Economic Development team in the past 12 months.

In keeping with the event’s aim to showcase manufacturing businesses in the region, the get-together is being hosted by Bridgeman, an Indigenous-owned, operated and Supply Nation-certified company based in Brendale which employs 100 staff in the advanced manufacturing sector.

Bridgeman will offer a tour of its manufacturing facilities as part of the event.

While focused on bringing together all manufacturing businesses great and small, some previous participants to the events have included CEOs and business owners from some of the larger businesses across the region including winners of the Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Excellence Award Business of the Year, Elexon Group.

Elexon Managing Director Pieter Kuiper says: “These events are great for bringing together the minds of manufacturing across the Moreton Bay Region. Our business has benefited from attending the previously held events, just from the networking connections alone. Some of our team members will be attending the upcoming event”.

Free registration to the Manufacturing Business Networking event is still open, and businesses across the manufacturing sector are encouraged to register and attend.
