Manufacturing is returning to Australia. Following the departure of the car industry and experimenting with production in China, Australian industry is making things again. And small run, niche products like waste systems or food additives are leading the way. Australia’s manufacturers can rarely compete with mass market goods produced cheaply in low cost countries. And they can’t rely on local content rules or a low Australian dollar to make their products cheap for overseas buyers. They need to be smart about what they make and how.
