gemaker developed Byron Aviation’s Manufacturing Modernisation Fund application, successfully winning a $100K grant. With this fund, the Department of Industry, Science and Technology supports SME manufacturers to adopt new technologies, enhance productivity and create jobs, by co-funding capital investments and reskilling.
gemaker’s team provided strategic advice to Byron Aviation, edited their project plan and wrote the project description and responses to the merit criteria.
Byron Aviation will use the funding to: acquire a heat and vacuum applicator – the only one in Australia – to laminate interior cabin components; prepare a facility in Brisbane to accommodate it; secure approvals from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority; and hire and train new staff.
This will enable Byron Aviation to deliver aircraft refurbishments that are globally competitive on price and quality.
