Duncan Reynolds:

We're quite a traditional business, we do a lot of sort of old school manufacturing, and the manufacturing industry is changing very quickly.

Kylie Ridding: 

Hi, I'm Kylie. I’m from SVSR. My parents originally started the business over 30 years ago. I joined – the last sibling of the family to join  the family business about 2010. At that time the business moved to Liverpool and we've been in Liverpool since then.

Duncan Reynolds:

We work on sewer ventilation systems for water utilities including Sydney water, many regional councils throughout New

South Wales and we design manufacture and install throughout New South Wales and increasingly throughout Australia.

The AMRF can really benefit our business by helping us expand our products and services range. We work in a very dynamic, fast changing environment - we need access to excellent research, we need access to excellent manufacturing facilities in order to remain competitive and grow our business.

Tony Jankovic:

We're looking to take our business to the next level through innovation of obviously streamlined manufacturing and obviously growing our business into other sectors where our services obviously are needed.

Artist's impression

The AMRF will offer varied and flexible access arrangements for companies of all sizes and stages from large multinationals to research institutions to SMEs.

The AMRF will look to work with industry partners and institutions at all stages of development. It will be capable of supporting small, defined projects and large, end-to-end programs and everything in between.

It will support SMEs, large multinationals and research institutions, to work collaboratively to prove out and scale up new manufacturing processes and products in preparation for commercial production.

Access to the AMRF’s stage one shared technology platform will be structured on a flexible engagement model to support both short and long-term projects, utilising the facility’s equipment, systems and technical staff. This will enable industry and academia to quickly plan and schedule short term development work and also arrange, plan and deliver major development projects on a case-by-case basis.

By providing easy access to this shared-use facility, we can also help local manufacturers bridge the gap from traditional to advanced manufacturing.

We will be turning the first sod for the AMRF Stage One in 2022.
