Sixty-seven TCF companies to benefit from Government

Jun '11
Sixty-seven switched-on textile, clothing and footwear businesses will benefit from Australian Government funding totalling $2.5 million to refashion their business enterprise culture with better business and management processes.

The funding, part of the Government's Textile, Clothing and Footwear (TCF) Small Business Program, will help those businesses succeed in tough economic times.

Innovation Minister Senator Kim Carr said the TCF sectors faced challenging times and projects such as putting in place digital systems and improved management practices would help ensure the industry's competitiveness and its long-term viability.

"We have more than 45,000 people employed in the TCF industries. It is an integral part of our manufacturing sector," Senator Carr said.

"By updating business processes, the 67 businesses stand a better chance of succeeding in a tough environment. The job prospects of 45,000 people - many in regional Australia - will be a lot more secure."

All states and the Northern Territory have received grants ranging from $15,000 to $50,000.

The Australian Coat Company Pty Ltd in Slacks Creek, Queensland, is using its $27,600 grant to install a design/patternmaking system. It will streamline production, giving it the flexibility to move into new markets for protective oilskin coats, work and motorcycle gear.

The bridal wear business of Luci Di Bella (Belena Pty Ltd) in Armadale, Victoria, will fund a digital management system with its $50,000 grant. It will centralise business data and reporting for better analysis and decision making.

Betty Sugar Clothing in Beckenham, WA, will use its $17,550 to develop e-commerce business and marketing plans to improve financial management and enable the design and manufacturing business to be more profitable and sustainable.
