Testimonials

CEO of the Advanced Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (AMCRC) Andrew McLellan, cannot speak highly enough of the Centre for Additive Manufacturing or its director Milan Brandt.

McLellan credits Professor Brandt with helping shape the focus of his Centre.

"We've been in operation for seven years, and one of the things we've highlighted is that additive manufacturing is a technology of extremely high priority for Australian manufacturers," he says.
