Epica is represented on the Supply Chain sub-committee of this important initiative. SADIG has been formed with a prime aim of gaining more Defence business for the greater Sydney area. Its axiom is based on the Power of Collaboration. It was agreed that better awareness of key supply chains and collaboration in tackling key issues was required with an emphasis of gaining more work for Sydney based industries. With SADIG’s Industry database of over 100 companies, enormous potential could be seen in industries working together particularly in the Aerospace and Defence Industry sectors. This important initiative is sponsored and supported by Regional Development Australia (RDA) and NSW Department of Trade and Investment. Now that it has commenced the various committees are working towards its official launch in early 2012.
