Cook Medical Australia

The Australian Innovation and Manufacturing Incentive

Cook Medical is a successful Australian manufacturing company and export business. Passionate about safeguarding the future of advanced manufacturing in Australia, Cook Medical wanted to leverage its own success for the betterment of the industry.

Committed to influencing government to stem the flow of Aussie ideas offshore to be manufactured elsewhere, together with Cook Medical we established the Australian Innovation and Manufacturing (AIM) Incentive: a group representative of industry, it includes AusBiotech, The Export Council and the Medical Technology Association of Australia.

We helped the group take the AIM Incentive policy idea to government, where it has been considered in recent innovation policy discussion.

Resulting editorial and discussions surrounding advanced manufacturing means that Cook Medical is a step closer to realising its vision of a strong future for manufacturing in Australia.
