We represent our Members by advocating their views on issues of importance and we support our Members by providing information, services, training and events that enhance their performance and sustainability.



Advanced Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited

Australian Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited (AMTIL) is the peak national body, based in Melbourne Australia that represents the interests of manufacturing technology suppliers and users within the precision engineering and advanced manufacturing sector. Established in 1999, AMTIL is the combination of the Institute of Machine Tools Australasia; established in 1945, and the Australian Machine Tool Association; established in 1954. AMTIL's reputation as a leading industry body has helped it to form valuable relationships with both State and Federal Government, allowing it to impact the decisions made about the advanced manufacturing industry.


Australian Steel Institute

The Australian Steel Institute (ASI) exists to represent the Australian steel industry, to support its growth in the future, maintaining and creating jobs and income for Australia, supporting Australian steel producers, distributors and manufacturers, fabricators and detailers, builders and constructors and city and regional communities by providing the highest-quality certified steel products for Australians.



Australian Steel Association

The Australian Steel Association (ASA) champions the need for an open market and even playing field for all manufacturing users and converters of steel products. It is our view that fair trade and a competitive market are essential for the steel industry to thrive.

As an independent association, we engage with regulators to provide guidance and feedback on issues including anti-dumping, steel standards and government policy. This ensures our members have a seat at the table and their voices are heard in the local market dominated by two big players. We also bring members together to connect and learn with many events and networking opportunities.



Association for Manufacturing Excellence 

The AME (Australia) was formed in 1999 as the result of a presentation that was delivered by Jim Watkins during a ‘Manufacturing Best Practices’ course, that was facilitated by the Centre for Manufacturing in Melbourne, Victoria. Getting together with a number of interested participants after the presentation, Jim mentioned the AME and the excellent work that they were currently carrying out in North America. Having recently attended a number of North American AME conferences, Jim was very aware of the value of such an organisation, and as a consequence was very keen to develop a local affiliate in Australia.
