Description: This paper presents the results of an analysis of the contribution that the GMH manufacturing facility in Elizabeth makes to South Australia. It updates a previous analysis of the contribution in 2011 undertaken for the Department of Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy – to reflect the reduction in employment at the facility that has occurred over the last two years.

Note that this report does not consider the issues around what is required to underpin the longer term sustainability of the operations at GMH. Nor does it consider the benefits that would arise from alternative uses of the funds that have and might be applied to GMH support.
