Mr Turnbull visited Omni Tanker for a factory tour at Smeaton Grange.

The company’s first light weight chemical tankers are being exported to Germany soon.

The company manufactures carbon fibre composite tanks to transport bulk liquids, including corrosive chemicals.

“This business is growing because it based on Australian innovation and enterprise,”Mr Turnbull said.

Omni Tanker managing director Daniel Rodgers said light weight tanks meant a more efficient transport operation.

“Australian manufacturing is often able to solve problems without being constrained by accepted thinking and methods,” Mr Rodgers said.

“By coming at it from a different angle, you can discover a novel solution and sometimes significant technology advances, like we now have with our now patented materials technology.”

Hume MP Angus Taylor saidinnovation was at the heart of the company’s success.

“Small businesses with incentives to grow and create, will just do it,” he said.

“They need freedom and encouragement to get on and solve real world problems and this is exactly what Mr Rodgersand his team have done.”

Macarthur MP Russell Matheson said the company had grown from four staff in a small shed eight years ago, to now employing 30 workers including tertiary qualified engineers.

“Omni Tanker will keep growing as it builds its export business. All of these staff here today are people from the local area who now have great jobs and careers ahead of them.”
