Downer Manufacturing Forum – Opportunities to engage

Capricorn Enterprise hosted Downer Group on the 10th of February for the Downer Manufacturing Forum. Business, industry and potential suppliers were able to hear about opportunities with Downer Group in Queensland and learn more about pre-registration and pre-qualification as suppliers.

Over 50 attendees were able to hear from the Downer management team about opportunities in Facilities and Services, Defence Estate Management & Operations, Rail Manufacturing and Maintenance, with a specific presentation provided regarding the Queensland Train Manufacturing Program. 

A breakout session followed the presentations with an interactive Q&A, followed by the opportunity for attendees to meet with Downer representatives for one-one-one discussions.

The best way to become part of this exciting opportunity and journey is to begin pre-registration and pre-qualification as a supplier for Downer’s QTMP procurement program. This Supplier Portal can be found at: The Queensland Train Manufacturing Program (
