The Australian Marine Complex (AMC) today held an event to celebrate 10 years of growth and achievements at the complex since opening in 2003.

Over the past 10 years, the AMC has been a significant State Government-owned asset for Western Australia, generating $1.75 billion in economic value and creating 26,700 local jobs.

The AMC was established as a world-class centre of excellence for manufacturing, fabrication, assembly, maintenance and technology activities servicing the marine, defence, oil and gas, and resources industries.

From the time it opened in 2003, it has grown from strength to strength to establish international recognition as the southern hemisphere’s premier integrated marine industrial facility.

One of the most unique and impressive aspects is the AMC Common User Facility (AMC-CUF), a multi-purpose fabrication, assembly and load-out facility. It provides vital infrastructure to accommodate projects of all sizes and enhances the capacity of WA-based companies.

The AMC’s common use infrastructure, together with its waterfront location, access to a high wide load network, and complementary clusters of suppliers and service providers, enables the seamless delivery of major projects on a grand scale.

The complex today is a buzzing hive of activity – showcasing the capability of local businesses, creating work opportunities and attracting investment into the State. It continues to grow and evolve to meet demand and the ever-changing needs of industry.

This year, the AMC celebrates a decade of achievements and now looks towards hosting more projects, reaching new milestones and realising even greater success in the years to come.
