Victorian METS Export Growth Program

Austmine's Victorian METS Export Hub is pleased to announce the next round of our virtual METS Export Growth Program, open to all Victorian Hub members.


The Victoria METS Export Growth Program is specially designed for Victorian companies, with the aim of helping them develop and grow their export markets.

Victorian METS companies are internationally-focused, technology-driven and have a strength in manufacturing, perfectly positioning them to address the new technologies, services and strategies that are coming to the fore in mining. The Victoria METS Export Hub is a network of METS companies. The Hub provides linkages, connections, training and global market identification to capitalise on existing strengths to build export opportunities for Victorian METS companies.

Through connecting regional and metropolitan Victorian METS centres, Hub members will be given access to the latest supply chain developments and strategic insights. This will help businesses fit into the modern mining paradigm, helping facilitate supply and value chain access, and driving sustainability.

The Victorian METS Export Growth Program consists of a series of 8 interactive workshops (including two pitching sessions) which are designed to take your business to the next level. Working with a mentor through various strategies designed to capture new opportunities, you will be able to put all your learnings into practice and pitch to a panel of potential buyers at the end of the program.

Throughout the program participants will be supported by a team of experienced exporter mentors, including:

Bob Calvert - Bob has 50 years experience in Sales and Marketing and Global and National distribution within local and international companies such as Jayben, Haulmax, Caterpillar and Elphinstone and others. He is a past board member of Austmine. 

Mark Gream - Mark has extensive international business experience in the engineering, mining and manufacturing sectors, including with Marfab, Hedweld, Southern Engineering Services and Tamburlaine Wines.

Robert Trzebski - Robert is Austmine’s Director of International Business. He has wide-ranging experience in the mining industry. He leads international trade missions and supports companies to access METS global supply chains.
