APMEC is about high-end manufacturing growth and more skilled jobs for Australia.

The Australian Automotive Products Manufacturers and Exporters Council (APMEC) was formed to support and promote the interests of Australia’s large, diverse and internationally competitive automotive components manufacturing sector.

APMEC is a specialist industry council of the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA). It is the network of AAAA members engaged in the production of original equipment and aftermarket automotive products including product design, research & development or manufacturing.



APMEC represents the automotive products industry to government, giving our members a seat at the table. Drawing on the experience of our members, APMEC promotes the benefits of our industry to the Australian economy and challenges perspectives regarding the status of the industry.


APMEC provides members with a range of information and support to encourage a diverse and thriving industry. APMEC also promotes our industry overseas, encouraging and supporting automotive products producers to examine or explore new markets.


APMEC provides regular opportunities for members to meet and engage with each other, to develop new skills and networks, and to share their common interests in the future of the automotive products industry.


APMEC is committed to developing the depth of skill and capacity in our industry, including by providing opportunities to share knowledge, experience and resources – supporting our industry to become more efficient and creating value for our members.
