Hi and welcome to our November newsletter.

It’s fair to say that the past several months have challenged all of us in many ways.  While recovery looks to be on the horizon, we still have a way to go. Our company has been very mindful of our corporate responsibilities to both our staff and customers alike. We have all adapted well and I thank all for the support and encouragement during recent times.

Interestingly, each month for the past six have been record months for our business which again is appreciated.  This is a strong sign of the confidence our manufacturing industry has been showing. The increased awareness that Australia can compete with the best and meet our local and overseas customers’ needs is positive for all especially our country’s future.

Our November newsletter is a snap shot of our ongoing active company and we trust it assists you in your machine tool investment considerations. The recent Federal Budget initiatives, particularly in relation to manufacturing, may offer some financial support to optimize your future investments.  We encourage you to seek advice from your Accounting team.  Naturally, our company is always available to assist you with our 35+  member support group, solid stock machine availability and that warm coffee when we can.

On a different note, our company and members have taken on the MoVember challenge.  Please forgive some of our male members who may be looking a bit scruffy during November. It’s all for a very good cause.

Yours sincerely

Dean McCarrol
