About US

We want to bring advanced composites manufacturing home and bridge the gap between academia and the industry by creating opportunities for future generations of big thinkers.

Our Story

In advancing Australia into this competitive new space era, protecting national security and manufacturing high quality advanced composites material existed a huge chasm. A belief that ‘Australian manufacturing didn’t cut it’ or the ‘cost would be exorbitant,’ drove clients to look internationally for their advanced composite materials. Aeromech was born to disrupt this presumption and propel Australia into the upper echelons of advanced composites manufacturing. Plus there was one more core ingredient that helped bring Aeromech into existence…

Our founder, Joe’s passion for space exploration, engineering and expertise in advanced composites manufacturing. Not to mention, his belief in making possible what everyone else thought was impossible. This combination of necessity, passion and belief has turned Aeromech into one of the top advanced composites manufacturers in Australia. We don’t just manufacture; we consult with businesses who want to improve their capabilities, and have partnered with eminent educational establishments to train experts in the industry. Aeromech is creating opportunities for future generations of big thinkers to get into an exciting and innovative industry. We're providing end-to-end solutions for the future.

Our Mission

We are on a quest to deliver the future and put Australia on the map for advanced composites manufacturing. Our mission is to reach the pinnacle of aerospace industry training, manufacturing, and consulting. To lead Australia to the forefront of advanced composites manufacturing. But that’s not all talk. We walk the walk. We have worked with some of the biggest names in this industry. We have trained the brightest minds in this industry; and to inspire young Australians to join this audacious adventure, we educate and train our young graduates to be ready to dive into the industry.

For businesses and organisations who can’t manufacture advanced composites, we make it for them. For those who need a second opinion, we are the go-to experts. To safeguard local opportunity, we push frontiers to keep advanced composites manufacturing on home soil. For those who want to train their employees or establish proper methodology, we train and curate a plan for them. Our mission is not to reach the top alone, it is to bring everyone to the top along with us. We are on a mission to maximise potential and make a mark on the world.
