Safetyline Jalousie Now a Member of Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre

Safetyline Jalousie is happy to announce that we are now a member company of Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC)! We are now part of a growing organisation comprised of over 2,100 members, and we are proud to be in the same ranks as some of the biggest names in the manufacturing industry in Australia.

What is AMGC?

AGMC is a vast non-profit network of Australian manufacturers, industry experts, research institutions and universities working together to facilitate the rapid transformation of the manufacturing industry in the country. It was established by the Australian government as a major initiative to drive innovation, productivity, and competitiveness across the industry. AMGC is led by industry experts.

The main goal of AMGC is to make Australian manufacturers globally competitive through research-led innovations and projects that set new directions and standards for the rest of the country and the world. AMGC also aspires to create new commercial opportunities for Australian manufacturers by supporting collaborations between its members and the research and scientific community. The many projects of AGMC is testament to the successful collaborations in every corner of the country.

The AMGC Impact

As there is focused government push towards the manufacturing sector, it has created a lot of opportunities in the industry. In its 2019 Projects Report, AMGC stated that it has helped create over 1,200 jobs and generate over $281 million in revenues. AMGC’s reach spans all of Australia, with a range of projects in each state, city, and territory, collectively expected to generate millions of dollars in outcomes. In 2019 AMGC was facilitating more than 40 projects across Australia, with over $27 million of AMGC and in-kind funding committed.

AMGC also launched its Manufacturing Academy in May 2019, where members can access successful projects examples and insights from other members to guide them in accelerating innovations for other future projects.

AMGC Projects

In just five years, AMGC collaborations has helped develop significantly beneficial products between Australian manufacturers, some of which are already out tin the market. Some of these include:

  • Low-cost carbon fibre composite fenders for the European automotive market
  • Cloud-connected water purification system for remote communities
  • Flight simulator for global pilot training
  • Smart factory for global logistics applications
  • Robotic AI welding technology, and more.

The Final Word – Safetyline Jalousie’s Role

As a member company, Safetyline Jalousie is firstly ready to learn from leaders and other Australian manufacturers who have made waves in the industry for their partnerships and innovations and delivered high-quality products and services. We are also more than happy to impart our knowledge and insights to this community. The things that have made Safetyline Jalousie a leading provider of protective, energy efficient, and automated louvre windows, are things we are more than willing to share with others to further innovation and help boost Australia’s manufacturing sector.

Safetyline Jalousie complies with AMGC’s collaboration standards for developing globally competitive products, and we are inspired to make and introduce new products and services, such as our louvre windows, that give our customers better living environments and better living experiences. We are excited for our induction into the AMGC community, and we look forward to the future of Safetyline Jalousie because of it.

We’ll keep you updated on the future projects of Safetyline Jalousie. For now, you can read our previous blog on how we advocate for better indoor air quality through louvre windows for better student academic performance.

As the most recent addition to the Safetyline Jalousie family, Ali is still coming to terms with the fact that a typical telephone conversation will often be answered with “You’re calling from Safety what”? followed by having to sound out and spell the name “ja-lou-sie” (it happens to us all). Born in Lebanon, Ali has moved around a lot over the years, living in Cyprus, Sydney for most of his Schooling, as well as China and Hong Kong. He currently resides in Melbourne where he spends a lot of time in his garden or doing some sort of work around the house. (Not too dissimilar to many other Melburnians following the onset of Covid). With a very obvious cultured background, Ali is warm and talkative and he’ll get you talking too.

One of the Safetyine Jalousie originals, Rom (often mistaken for John) holds a great passion for the product. He says its “its innovative, a market leader and ever-evolving, very much like the company itself”. When you meet Rom, it is apparent that he is well-educated and well-travelled. Coming from a family of medical professionals, they moved around extensively and often. Last count was 125 countries. So nearly all of them! It’s really no surprise that Rom has mastered packing a weeks-worth of clothes and necessities into a carry-on bag. And when we say clothes we actually mean meticulously prepared outfits and accessories. When Rom enters a room, you’re sure to know it!

Adam is our strategist and big ideas generator whose somewhat reserved nature could have some mistake him as a bit of an introvert. But that’s only until this quiet thinker is given a whiteboard and a marker – and then there’s no stopping the dialogue! 7 Years in at Safetyline Jalousie, Adam is continually expanding on his knowledge of the construction industry and is incredibly driven in his pursuit to help create better buildings via the use of better products. When Adam’s not on his quest to improve Australia’s built environment he’s spending most weekends escorting one of his 4 young kids to birthday parties, sometimes multiple parties. He has some stealth survival tips for other parents currently in the same predicament.

Michael has become recognised at Safetyline Jalousie for his continually changing hairstyles (facial hair included). Buzz cut, undercut, dreadlocks, even a mullet. We’ve see it all. His current man bun could even be gone before we finish this sentence. Always up for a laugh, friends and colleagues love a chat with Michael, and his easy-going and approachable nature has earned him the respect of all staff. In fact, he even has a cohort of followers on the factory floor sporting his same hairstyles. Outside of work Michael has recently turned his attention to mountain bike riding. His very first ride ended with a pretty serious accident resulting in a deep puncture wound to his leg– it’s been a sore topic for his leg and his ego.

Our South American Native, Jonathan is more simply and better known as “Chilli” (no need to try and guess his country of origin). After 16 years of military service, Chilli joined the Safetyline Jalousie team for what he describes as “a change of pace”. Although his average work day might look very different these days, there’s no doubt that Chilli’s previous experience has contributed in shaping a culture of commitment, community and comradery within the production team – the very important engine room of our company. Driven by a sense of accomplishment, in addition to running Safetyline Jalousie’s production line with military precision, Chilli has recently been studying hard to complete his Master’s Degree in Business and Logistics.

Mandy has been with Safetyline jalousie since day one so would technically be considered a geriatric in “Jalousie years”. Whilst her role has changed and evolved over her time with the business, one thing that hasn’t is the happy and fun, team culture that she says “continues to make each day at work a joy”. As a mum of two little ones, Mandy thrives on new challenges and a little bit of chaos. Although, as a self-proclaimed clean freak, she ensures that all forms of chaos are kept in a very neat and tidy manner. We’ve also observed that Mandy appears to have an inherent fear of colour and will almost only ever be seen in black or white (or sometimes grey if she is being really out there).

As a busy mother of 4, Lisa is highly skilled in organising, delegating, and troubleshooting – the proficiencies which she also demonstrates in her daily management of the Safetyline Jalousie office. Lisa tells us that she lives by the saying “What doesn’t break you makes you stronger”. (No doubt she’s had to use this little piece or personal encouragement from time to time to deal with our infinite requests)! Always on the go, Lisa has a very active lifestyle and starts every day with a walk to the beach with her husband and two dogs. Of an evening she still has the energy to spare for star jumps and squats in her makeshift gym/ (our office) before heading home to her other full-time job as “mum”.

The younger brother of the co-founding sibling duo, “Nath” is the go-to for just about every technical, install, and manufacturing enquiry that comes via the business. Very early on, Nath’s product knowledge and problem-solving ability saw him organically take on the role of Operations, overseeing the design and management of Safetyline Jalousie’s behind-the-scenes work. When he’s off duty (and not answering a million questions), Nath enjoys spending time with his wife and 3 young kids. You’ll find him cheering on his son at weekend sports, enjoying the water somewhere along the Northern beaches and this lover of food is generally always planning his next big meal. Preferably a Lebanese banquet if anyone can suggest a restaurant he doesn’t frequent already.
