Gerry helped us obtain a PIRSA Regional Development Grant and a Future Jobs Fund loan to help with our business expansion. He also prepared a strategic plan and export marketing plan to develop new markets in SE Asia which led to a successful Export Accelerator grant
Gerry helped us to obtain a Sovereign Industrial Capability Project grant under the Centre for Defence Industry Capability (CDIC) program. This grant was to reorganise out production facility and acquire a new furnace for casting high-grade aluminium.
After helping us to obtain a Global Competitiveness grant from the CDIC Program to acquire some new equipment, Gerry has prepared a comprehensive three-year strategic plan to guide out business growth in the defence and other sectors.
