Local Manufacturers of PPE and Hand Sanitiser

The Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC) developed the COVID-19 Manufacturer Response Register to help Australian businesses identify collaboration and market opportunities in order to supply protective, medical or critical care equipment in response to the COVID-19 crisis. The Register is an interactive platform that allows manufacturers, suppliers and customers to generate a profile outlining their capabilities and at the same time offer a demand search feature to source essential goods or service.

Please contact us on the Central Coast Economy Facebook page if you are having trouble sourcing PPE to reopen.
