Transport and construction
Transport equipment is Victoria's second largest manufacturing industry, and our foundation with the transport sector is strong. A number of local firms already thrive in the highly competitive global market, demonstrating that Victoria's manufacturing businesses are of a world standard.
Businesses in Melbourne and regional Victoria manufacture trains and rolling stock, buses, trucks, speciality vehicles, aircraft components, passenger motor vehicles and components, recreational vehicles and trailers.
A combination of superior materials research and development capabilities, world-class collaborative infrastructure, and a highly skilled and productive design and engineering workforce supports our rank as global leaders in the automotive and aerospace industries.
Melbourne's aviation and aerospace sector is Australia's biggest and we've been the nation's centre of aircraft manufacturing and maintenance for over half a century – placing us in a strong position to support the predicted growth in the aviation industry internationally.
