National Local Content Group
These committees aim to maximize the Australian Industry fabricated content in the four priority sectors of: Engineering Projects (Mining, Oil & Gas, Desalination, Pulp Mills, etc.); Industrial & Commercial Buildings; Infrastructure
Projects (Government and private funded, Roads, Bridges, Power Plants, etc.);
Other major tonnes affecting ASI members (Guardrails, Wind Towers, Piling, etc).
This will be achieved through specific project and industry awareness and influencing of owners, decision makers and key influencers, to use locally fabricated product, thereby reducing the amount of imported fabricated steel in the Australian market by:
a) Developing an accurate understanding of the changing nature of the market and why people use imported fabricated steel.
b) Determine how and where the Australian industry can be competitive and can deliver.
c) Develop, promote and sell the local content value proposition.
