DECO Australia, which traditionally manufactures architectural building products and finishes, recently expanded its offering to provide industrial finishing services for the defence, engineering and food processing sectors.

During his visit to the facility, Albanese also discussed some of the common issues faced by Australian manufacturers, including innovation patents and other IP protection, industry support for research and development and the defence procurement challenges.

“We were delighted to have the opportunity to show Mr Albanese just what DECO can do,” DECO director Ross Doonan said.

“Manufacturing is the beating heart of Australia, and it’s encouraging to be able to have conversations with our government officials about how they can better support Australian manufacturers in bringing innovative solutions to the table.

“We look forward to Mr Albanese returning to cut the ribbon on our Innovation Centre.”
