Queensland manufacturers and businesses have retooled and innovated to make high grade PPE to address the needs of the health sector and broader community.

The Queensland Government is working with local manufacturers to ensure we have sustainable ongoing supplies to support the state and ensuring PPE and medical equipment used by our front-line health workers is manufactured to specific standards.

Essential Goods and Supply Chain Program

On 19 May 2020, the Queensland Government announced up to $50 million has been redirected to help Queensland manufacturers make essential goods such as personal protective equipment, health consumables and devices.

We will work with industry to develop and expand manufacturing and production capacity of essential goods and to shore up the supply chain of essential goods.

Whether it’s assistance to design, up tool, reprioritise or pivot production, or to investigate opportunities and design new products, or guidance through the clinical approval processes, we stand ready to help business and industry.

To be considered for the program, please complete the initial registration of interest.
