Australia and the United States share many interests – sports, business, culture, and not surprisingly, a focus on scientific innovation to facilitate economic growth.
In late 2015, the Australian government announced its National Innovation and Science Agenda which recognizes the importance of collaboration between research and industry, and of developing the talent and skills required to keep Australia competitive in the global marketplace. This forward-looking initiative demonstrates a strong commitment to innovation and progress on a national scale. The results will empower businesses to bring new ideas to market and benefit every sector of the country’s economy.
As an organization dedicated to developing, testing, and implementing advanced manufacturing technology, EWI has worked to increase the competitiveness of U.S. manufacturers for over 30 years. Over the last two decades, the U.S. has seen dramatic shifts in the automotive, oil & gas, and heavy manufacturing industries. EWI has been a leader during these tough times and worked closely with U.S. manufacturers to help them adapt, innovate, and grow stronger to overcome future challenges.
EWI’s record of developing and deploying groundbreaking technology puts us in a unique position to serve Australia’s manufacturing industries. We share a common goal of promoting innovation to increase competitiveness in a global marketplace.
With that goal in mind, we are establishing a presence in Australia. Starting in May 2016, Marc Purslow will be representing EWI’s technology capabilities to Australian manufacturing businesses. Backed by our network of technical centers, industrial partnerships, and world-class team of applied engineers, Marc will focus on helping Australia’s manufacturers innovate to build a stronger future together. Marc can be reached at [email protected] or (+61) 0498 329 040.
EWI looks forward to expanding its services, and looks forward to working with manufacturers to advance Australian innovation in the years to come. For more information, contact [email protected].
