Magnificent Seven

Hello World, Dee here, how is everyone? Did everyone have a nice long weekend? We took our little one to the movies (his last weekend of school holidays) and we saw the remake of Magnificent Seven. Guess what? It was magnificent!

magnificent seven

It is a very good story line: Seven lone gunslingers unite to save a desperate town from a dastardly villain, eventually realizing they’re in it more for doing the right thing than for a payday. It has a lot of action in it, which made my boys happy, but it also had a lot of heart. The heart felt feelings of helping a town to save the people came through as the movie goes along. These seven strangers did not know the town from a bar of soap, but they took the risk in giving a helping hand; even when they realised it could be a one-way trip. The magnificent seven, with their fast speed gun shooting and quick hands wanted to help the “little guys”.


This made me think about local support and small business support…if you have an upcoming project, why don’t you give a small business or local business a try or an opportunity to quote on product and service? If you have an upcoming order that needs to be filled, why not hunt around for a small or local business that can provide that support for you? Don’t keep going to the usual big business, how about try an Australian manufacturer? Any opportunity is a good opportunity. If Denzel Washington’s character didn’t take a chance on a small, not very well known town, it would have been a different story…or basically no movie at all hey? Let’s see if we can work Magnificent Seven style.


I haven’t mentioned it yet, but I will now…Go Doggies!!! (sorry if any of you are a Sydney supporter). Did you all watch the Grand Final on Saturday? We did, and how amazing did the doggies keep up their fight. They didn’t back down, they kept trying and pushing and Sydney felt the pressure. This isn’t going to be an article to “bag” Sydney, it is to appreciate the foundation of the Western Bulldogs – their alliance to one another and team work.


When the players were receiving their medals, I kept saying “Murphy should get a medal, he did a lot of hard work before he was injured, Murphy should get a medal…” then Luke Beveridge asked Bob Murphy onto the stage and gave him his own medal. “What a Champion!” I yelled. (I don’t even follow the doggies, I’m a huge Carlton supporter hahaha). How amazing and selfless is that? Coach didn’t have to do that, but he just proved how much of a down-to-earth bloke he really is. That just showed the type of noble bloke he really is.

Food for thought for the week: think of something noble you might be able to do, whether it be to give an opportunity to a supplier you haven’t used in a while, or instead of giving a project/order opportunity to your standard international large business, why not give this chance to a local Australian manufacturer? If one person from each business in Australia did this, Australian manufacturing/business could possibly boom.

Support us like the Grand Finals

Hello world, Dee here.

Did everyone have a good weekend? Did you all watch the preliminary finals with the Doggies vs. GWS?

My family and I did. It was such a great match and it was close the whole game. It’s not as exciting when you watch a footy match and then it’s a complete blow out and you know from the first quarter who will win. Saturdays game had us all sitting on the edge of our seat biting our nails. It’s fantastic when the underdogs win…the Bulldogs story this season certainly has been a Cinderella story. Since the start of the year, they’ve been fighting for what they believe in and have definitely earnt their spot in the Grand Final this weekend.


I was listening to the radio on my way into work yesterday morning, and the radio hosts were asking anyone to call up who are excited about the bulldogs being in the Finals. It was wonderful to hear so many callers ring up and cheer on the doggies. They weren’t all Bulldog supporters either, they were all so happy for the Western Bulldogs to get in. They all empathized and imagined how they would feel if it were their own teams. I thought it was incredible to hear a state come together as one and cheer on for the dogs.


Why can’t it be like this with support for locals? If we all thought of it as a Grand Final match, maybe we as a nation would have a chance? I don’t mean, walk into your meetings with blue and white paint on your face screaming “Sons of the West, Red, White and Blue…” I mean, it doesn’t help us that the Government sold an Australian dock to the Chinese, or that the Government support cheap low quality imports instead of high quality and Australian products. It also doesn’t help when the Government doesn’t support an equal “playing” field between big business and small business. It would be an ideal country if we could all support our Australian Made products before the cheap imports hey?


I’m a big Blues supporter (Carlton FC), and I was still happy and was screaming with joy when the Bulldogs won on Saturday. It would be great if we could all support each other in the same way don’t you think?

I’ll leave this food for thought for you this week: Support your local business like you’ll be supporting the Grand Final team this weekend!

Welcome Back!

Hello world, Dee here.

You may or may not have heard from us (Amiga Engineering™ Pty Ltd) yet, I just want to remind everyone that, YES! Genat and Wood™ are still here and are pumping strong! I also want to say..Welcome Back!

You may not actually realise that you have our genuine Australian Made and Owned Genat and Wood™ industrial gearboxes.

Our industrial gearboxes are driving your machines, running your pumps in the mines you work in, stirring your food vats and mixing your wines. Genat and Wood™ gearheads are being used in the process of mixing cheese, running the conveyor system in your factory, driving the cutters on your shredders, running the surface aerator at your water treatment plant and operating the equipment in your workshop.

We have found that after touching base with a number of past customers, some believed that Genat and Wood™ had stopped being manufactured? Well guess what? That is incorrect…Genat and Wood™ are here and will be here to support you as you have supported us in the past…A song that keeps playing in my mind while writing this newsletter is the “Breakfast Club” song…”Don’t you, forget about me…Don’t don’t don’t don’t…don’t you, forget about me..”

I have a mission for you all, if you choose to accept it…..and that is to walk over to your machines, pumps, shredders, stirrers, mixers, aerators and conveyor systems, and have a look at the motor and gearhead that are running them. Have a look at the brand and see if it is our “Reliably Australian” industrial gearhead. If not Genat and Wood™, then I believe it will be our Varmec gearhead or Tramec range of product. If it is one of the 3, then I dare you to take a couple of minutes and send me an e-mail to say…”Yes!, we have a …………branded gearhead” (

Now, Amiga Engineering™ Pty Ltd don’t only manufacture and supply industrial gearheads and gearhead parts, we are also the specialists in Pipe Fittings and Flanges. We have been for almost 30 years! Do you know what’s special about our fittings and flanges? They are Australian Made! They are high quality, they are precision machined to your needs! They’re not ‘off-the-shelf’ from Asia or overseas, they are locally made in Australia, with Australian metals. You may not realise either, that you can actually find Amiga’s fittings or flanges on every oil rig and platform in and around Australia.

Don’t stop reading now, because Amiga Engineering™ Pty Ltd can machine anything and everything. We can machine up to 2.8meters in diameter! Did you hear that? 2.8 meters! If you have a drawing or Spec, then send it to our e-mail ( and ask us for a free quote. Amiga has worked in countless projects, you may not realise because in the 90’s and early 2000’s, we were the 3rd party manufacturer. Many large business’ asked Amiga Engineering™ to do the work for them because of the quality that we provide. Big business know that Amiga can manufacture a product that will last for decades!

I could talk for hours about the excellence and superior products that we manufacture, however I’ll leave that for next week’s newsletter. Thanks for your time and please keep following. If you want a product that is worth paying for, then give us a call or send us an e-mail.

Support your Locals

Hello World, Dee here,

How has everyone been? It’s been a little while since I last posted, I’ve definitely been keeping busy, and as I’m sure you all have.

Yesterday my son was working on an assignment, where he watched a youtube video in class and was given the text on a piece of paper. He had to read through and highlight the important points of the article.

This particular article was about agricultural farming and the changes that the agricultural industry is going through. My son would read me the points he thinks are important and then I’d ask him to explain it in his own words. There was a point in there that struck me with a bit of happiness and relief that some schools believe it is important: Agricultural farming equipment manufacture is not as strongly supported as it used to be – this is due to imports taking over our country’s own products.


The price of local agricultural farming has increased, but this is due to quality over quantity. Many farming companies are trying to keep their fruit, vegetables, meat and poultry natural; with no additives or pesticides.

Support Dairy Farmers

This is frustrating to many farmers and their communities because they are keeping their land and product natural, whilst other international farmers/companies are using chemicals and techniques to produce more products, but at a lower standard and lower health benefit.

I was quite proud of my son and how he explained what he thought the article was about, because it meant that he does listen to my rants and ravings about Australian Manufacturing and Local products needing support. It means, that some schools are hopefully teaching the younger generations about the issues that Local manufacturers have to deal with currently. This means that maybe what we say is being passed down to our young ones and their friends, and this could possibly be a step closer to making a change! To support your locals!

Aussie Helpers

What I am disappointed in is our Australian Government, if I can reach out to a class of young students who can possibly shape our future, why isn’t the Government doing anything at their end to help support their own country? Why is it, that when a local business writes to the Australian Government, they write a letter back saying Thank you, but maybe you should ask the incoming government. So does this mean that the current party did not believe they were going to stay in power? Does this mean that current party just wanted to wash their hands clean and hope some one else can deal with the ongoing rising issues that are facing our local business’ today? Did they hope that maybe I’d sit back and say, “oh well, I tried once I’ll stop now”? Well guess what, I have not given up!

Support Australian Manufacturing

Support Australian Manufacturing

We all need to stand together and fight for what is right! Fight to support local business and local manufacturers! Fight to keep Australian manufacturing alive! Fight to keep the schools teaching students about these issues we are faced with now, because it will become part of Australian history. Support your local farmers and agricultural communities! Support your local business!

Support Australian Manufacturing!
