Media Release: Bradfield business gets $189,040 federal grant

A local company in Bradfield is set to benefit from a $189,040 share in $5.3 million of the Liberal National Government’s Accelerating Commercialisation (AC) grants.

MarrosLiving Pty Ltd, a business in Roseville, has developed a novel barbeque incorporating a patent protected automated cleaning device for the domestic and commercial market. This provides the benefit of convenient cleaning while eliminating the health risks associated with ingesting carcinogenic residues, cleaning chemicals and lose brush bristles.

The funding helps businesses take their products to market through commercialisation steps such as product trials, development and market testing.

Mr Fletcher welcomed the success of MarrosLiving.

“This grant will not only help MarrosLiving to accelerate its project, it provides inspiration to other local businesses to think outside the square and come up with ways to improve their business,” Mr Fletcher said.

“It shows that local companies can compete at a high level and create job opportunities in Bradfield.

“The grant also shows that businesses can enhance their success, both locally and globally through partnerships with government.”

The Coalition’s plan for a stronger economy has already helped create over 1.25 million jobs since coming into Government in 2013 and will help us reach our target to create a further 1.25 million jobs over the next five years.

Since the program launch in 2014, 390 grants worth $192 million have been offered to Australian businesses to commercialise their ground breaking technologies.

The grants are part of the Liberal National Government’s Entrepreneurs’ Programme. Each of the grants will be matched by industry funding from the businesses.

Accelerating Commercialisation grant applications can be lodged at any time for access to expert advice and matched funding grants of up to $1 million to cover commercialisation costs and help companies take their products to market.
