The Australian car producing industry is one of Australia’s most forward thinking commercial ventures. It’s contribution to the economy goes well beyond the assaembly line.
Today’s auto industry comprises of three major multinational makers of engine vehicles: Ford, General Motors Holden (GMH) and Toyota, not to mention the the many parts makers, going from small Australian makers to organisations that are likewise backups of huge multinationals.
The automotive industry engages over 50,000 people in employment, of which around 17,000 work at Ford, GMH and Toyota. Never-the-less, thje future is uncertain.
As has been noted elsewhere in the media, Ford will stop producing operations in 2016. Today Australia creates just around 225,000 engine vehicles (down from memorable highs of more than 407,000 as of late as 2004). In an industry where economies of scale are critical in maintaining competitiveness, the present volume is a genuine concern.
Her at Virtual Wheels, we are keen to keep the dream alove and brag about the industry. Even if it all goes down shitters ditch, we will still brag about that.
Here you can search for car technology, maintenance, industry trade news and career information as well as find a car to buy in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia, Northern Territory and, Victoria, I suppose.
