Leading companies in Tasmania, Australia

Tasmania is the island state of Australia which is spread across 68,401 kilometres square and is popularly known as the natural state having national parks, wildlife sanctuaries and world heritage sites covering almost 42% of the land area of the state. Tasmania was the founding place of the first environmental party in the world.

The population of the state is around 500,000 people with majority of them residing in the Greater Hobart precinct, which forms the metropolitan area of the state capital. The major cities which form part of the state of Tasmania are Launceston, Devonport, Brunei, Kingston, Ulverstone, New Norfolk, Wynyard, George Town, and Sorell.

Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania is the second oldest capital city in Australia and is the major international port for carrying bilateral trade between Australia and France. The coast of Hobart is the major shipping port and economical hub of generating 23% of the country GDP.

The top ten major industries contributing to Tasmania growth are:

Metal Processing: Production of metals brings more than 1.3 billion Australian dollars into Tasmania every year. The largest processors of minerals are Nyrstar, the current owners of a zinc smelter on the Derwent River in Hobart, and aluminium producers on the Tamar River at Bell Bay in the north.

Tourism: Tourism brings around 1.3 billion Australian dollars into the Tasmanian economy every year. In recent times there has been an annual influx of more than 800,000 visitors. The winter months are a quiet period for tourism but in the summer there are nearly fifty cruise-ship arrivals in Hobart, daily arrivals on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry service into Devonport, and a huge boost provided by the availability of low-cost flight services.

Manufactured Goods: manufacture of textiles, machinery, including marine, automotive components, heavy engineering and mining equipment, as well as the output of two ship-building companies – well, builders of rather large aluminium-hulled passenger ferries actually. Sometimes the figures for manufactured goods are boosted by including items that are bunched in the food and beverage, and timber, categories on this list.

ICT: The value of information and communications technology services as a contribution to the Tasmanian economy is exciting; this category deserves to be placed higher up this list. Respected economists have placed ICT on their list of contributors, and the sector is apparently growing rapidly.

Wood and Paper: About half of all Australian exports of wood chips, newsprint and writing paper come from Tasmania. Hardwood production is much less, as a percentage of total Australian exports. Factories have been developed in Tasmania to add value to the forestry resource by manufacturing laminated veneers and particle board. The timber industry contributes about half a billion Australian dollars to the Tasmanian economy every year.

Ores: Minerals such as copper, zinc and lead are mined, mostly on the west coast of Tasmania, and the export of unprocessed ores contributes around four hundred million Australian dollars to the Tasmanian economy every year.

Seafood: Unprocessed wild fisheries, harvesting abalone and rock lobster in the main, and farmed Atlantic salmon contribute about one hundred and fifty million Australian dollars to the Tasmanian economy every year

Meat: Beef and, to a lesser extent, lamb exports bring in around one hundred and twenty million Australian dollars into the Tasmanian economy every year. Tasmania is the only state in Australia that has a legislated prohibition on the use of hormone growth proteins, and that gives exporters an edge in certain markets. The meat industry in Tasmania also generates income through sales of pork and poultry, albeit at levels much lower than red meat exports.

Dairy Products: Approximately 460 dairy farms in Tasmania produce nearly seven hundred million litres of milk a year. Dairy exports, lead by cheese and cream products, contribute over one hundred million Australian dollars a year to the Tasmanian economy.

Food & Drink: Tasmania produces a huge range of quality food and beverage products. Chief among these items, in terms of export income, would be fruit, vegetables, chocolate, beer and wine. These bring in more than one hundred million Australian dollars into the State every year, quite apart from the income generated through export of seafood, meat and dairy products.

Why Australia needs you?

Due to low population in Australia around 2.5 crores which is 50% less than major Indian Metro cities and other contributing factors there is a low percentage of skilled graduates at the university level creating an imbalance of skilled workforce availability vs. industry requirements.
