Federal Government turbocharges the manufacturing industry

Leina & Fleur, Chemistry House, Patterson Glass scoop share of Federal funding

THREE Gold Coast companies will benefit as the Federal Government turbocharges the manufacturing industry’s recovery from the COVID-19 crisis by tipping nearly $50 million into 220 projects across the country.

The companies – clothing designer Leina & Fleur, Molendinar’s Chemistry House and Nerang’s Patterson Glass – will receive between $50,000 and $100,000 each to modernise their equipment.

Leina B&bFleur will use its $100,000 to implement fabric inspection technology and garment automatic cutting technology.

This will allow it to increase its output by 30 per cent and reduce waste by 15 per cent.

Industry Minister Karen Andrews said the money would help business amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
