"All enterprises have concerns on how to remain productive and competitive in a world that expects businesses to operate with sustainability as a core value.  They also have fantastic ideas to address these concerns, but they may not have the expertise, resources, or time to implement the ideas, or develop the ideas further.  That’s where the PEM Technology Gateway can help.  We work with enterprises to help them realise their potential and enable access to resources to move ideas to reality so their business can remain competitive. The PEM Technology Gateway brings technological advancement to engineering, materials, and manufacturing processes, enabling business to stand out from the crowd.”
