Occupying 38 hectares within the Australian Marine Complex (AMC), the Support Industry Precinct provides serviced land for small to medium-sized suppliers of goods and services to the shipbuilding, defence and resource development industries, with a focus on location, ease of access and affordability.
The close proximity of the Support Industry Precinct to the Maritime Precinct <link to page>, Fabrication Precinct <link to page> and Common User Facility <link to page> at the AMC provides real opportunities and synergies for companies keen to locate close to major customers.
The Support Industry Precinct is also close to Perth's other heavy industrial zones, with high-wide load roads providing ease of access.
The Precinct is home to some of the world's best design, support and service companies, attracting business to support not only the local maritime, defence and resource sector manufacturing hub at the AMC, but export markets worldwide.
The Precinct has "Approved Industrial Purpose" design guidelines covering a broad range of activities, from paint and plastic extrusion to the manufacture of propellers, and offers a range of lot sizes.
The WA Applied Engineering and Shipbuilding Training Centre services the training needs of one of Western Australia’s multi-million dollar export industries - the shipbuilding industry, in particular the aluminium fast ferry sector.
Ideally located in the heart of Western Australia’s shipbuilding region, the Centre offers training in areas including marine fabrication/welding, marine fitting, shipwrighting/fit-out and electrical trades.
A range of short courses is also available for people wanting to improve their skills, with the Centre able to provide training on and off-the-job and courses tailored to suit industry needs.
