Creating jobs and driving growth

The suppliers and manufacturers that support the rail industry are key employers in our cities and regional centres. They drive innovation and keep our rail network moving.

Creating jobs across Australia

More than 4000 jobs are created by rollingstock manufacturing and repair in Australia, with many of those located in regional centres.

The $2.4 billion sector has key employment bases in Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle, Maryborough, Dandenong and Lake Macquarie.

Delivering value across the asset lifecycle

The rail manufacturing industry delivers rollingstock that meets Australian and New Zealand conditions and operating requirements, right from the start. This local knowledge can reduce maintenance and operational costs across the life of an asset, delivering better value for operators and providing a solution that is made for the local environment.
