Maryborough will play an important role in the future of Australia’s defence capability as the home of the Rheinmetall NIOA Munitions factory - the most advanced manufacturing facility of its kind anywhere in the world which will soon start producing equipment for the ADF and allied nations while creating a stronger local economy.
