    *IBISWorld industry overview


Globalisation and technological advances have dramatically changed the manufacturing industry in recent years, with our once thriving sector falling victim to volatile commodities markets and cheap overseas labour. And as Australia continues to seek overseas resources to meet operational needs and reduce costs, the industry is continuing to tighten.

With extensive experience in the manufacturing sector we’re well placed to help your business navigate through this challenging period. SW can assist with your strategic business and financial planning global tax and transfer pricing policy formulation, risk analysis and feasibility studies and to help you identify new opportunities to grow your business both here and abroad.
