A catalyst for the growth of advanced manufacturing & adoption of the Industry 4.0 agenda in South Australia.

Located in the award winning Tonsley Innovation Precinct in Adelaide’s southern suburbs (the former site of Mitsubishi’s automotive manufacturing in Australia), the Tonsley Manufacturing Innovation Hub (TMI) is a catalyst for the growth of advanced manufacturing and adoption of the Industry 4.0 agenda in South Australia.

Working closely with the Innovative Manufacturing Co-operative Research Centre, the South Australian and Commonwealth Governments and industry, the TMI is working with companies to accelerate the uptake and diffusion of digital and automation technologies in manufacturing across a broad range of sectors.

Uniquely, it pursues this in tandem with the adoption of high performance business systems.
