The Andrews Labor Government will provide $16,000 for Clayton-based automotive supply chain company with the support they need to plan for their future.
Member for Clarinda, Hong Lim said that Premoso – Holden Special Vehicles will use the funding to develop a transition plan that will identify new opportunities and new markets to target.
Labor has always supported the automotive manufacturing industry in Victoria and we are doing all we can to minimise the impact on workers and their families who were abandoned by the Federal Liberals when they cut funding to the major car manufactures.
The Labor Government’s Automotive Supply Chain Transition Program (ASCTP) was established to support businesses identify future opportunities and new markets, and highlight the capabilities needed to enter that market.
Following the development of a Business Transition Plan, supply chain companies can then apply for funding of up to $55,000 to implement the key transition activities identified in their plan.
This program is part of the Labor Government’s $46.5 million Automotive Transition Plan to help Victorian automotive businesses transition into new markets, retrain and find jobs for automotive workers, and attract investment into communities suffering from the closure of automotive manufacturing.
Automotive supply chain companies are encouraged to apply for assistance by visiting Business Victoria website at www.business.vic.gov.au/asctp or calling 13 22 15.
