Seventeen Mile Rocks electronics and manufacturing company Intellidesign has received a generous grant for the company’s cyber and physical security certification.
Melissa Price, the Minister for Defence Industry, announced on the 1st of June 2021 that Intellidesign, an electronics design and manufacturing company based in Seventeen Mile Rocks, was to receive a share of $837,000 in grants among five other small Australian businesses in a bid to boost their competitiveness on the world stage.
The grants, dubbed the Defence Global Competitiveness Grants, are a critical program designed by the Morrison Government to make the nation’s defence industry more powerful and more globally competitive, and according to Minister Price, each of the six companies that received the grant have benefitted.
“Supporting the export capability of Australian small-to-medium enterprises strengthens their international competitiveness and drives innovation,” Minister Price said. “It allows them to provide cutting-edge and cost-effective capabilities to the Australian Defence Force. By investing in Australian businesses, the Morrison Government is delivering on its promise to generate jobs for Australians as a vital part of our economic recovery from COVID-19.”
Intellidesign in particular has been given a total of $59,908 to upgrade the company’s cyber and physical security and help them acquire certification. These upgrades will allow businesses to pursue export opportunities with global primes and overseas defence forces.
