Government turns off the lights on manufacturing industry
A new government proposal will turn off the lights on one of Australia’s few remaining viable manufacturing industries, a peak body warns.
Lighting manufacture in Australia provides nearly 5,000 manufacturing jobs across the country, with thousands of downstream jobs reliant on the survival of the industry.

Australia National Marketing and Environment Manager.
