Is your local content really as local as you think?
Different government purchasers will have various local content requirements. These could include the source of the goods, materials and services, or the degree to which local suppliers and subcontractors are used. Some requirements may specify that local content must have a small, localised geographic footprint. For example, within the city that the purchasing company is located within. For others, it is acceptable to consider suppliers within the state or Australia as a whole.
Local content is usually calculated as the sale price less the imported content – including the supplier margin. When your supplier is foreign-owned, it increases the risk of that margin going offshore. Coachair and our parent company, The KYR Group, are 100% locally owned, which means ALL of our local content stays local, ready to be reinvested back into the Australian market.
