When Holden, Ford and Toyota stopped production of their cars in Australia, it spelt doom for Australia’s manufacturing industry.
Is it the end for our factories, or are we just seeing a shift in the products and items that we make?
One company helping to restore our manufacturing industry is Sonnen, an international solar battery manufacturer. It is the only home battery product made right here in Australia, and is one of only three of its manufacturing facilities around the world.
Occupying Holden’s original site in Elizabeth, South Australia, the facility will provide production of Sonnen’s Asia Pacific battery needs, with the aim of producing over 10,000 batteries per year.
So next time you think about the old days of Aussie manufacturing, just think solar batteries!
