Australian investment continues to increase in the U.S., especially in manufacturing, software and IT services, and modern support services. The Dallas-Fort Worth region, an international business and tourism hub, is a top U.S. metropolitan area for business expansions, relocations and growth.

The Dallas-Fort Worth area is a focal point for Australian businesses in engineering design and engineering consulting services, and oil and gas. Two dozen Australian parent companies operate in North Texas, and recent Australian expansions here include ADVAM, a leading payment service provider; MIC Global Services, a shared services organisation; and Alpha Seven Energy, an international independent oil and gas company. Established Australian companies in DFW include WorleyParsons, BHP Billiton, Atlantic Aviation Corp., Otis Energy Inc., PIRTEK USA, Ascension Coffee, LDU, Icon Global and Amcor Rigid Plastics.

“We greatly anticipate the opportunity to forge new ties with our partners in Australia on this upcoming DFW trip to Sydney,” Rawlings said. “Not only do these trips play a vital role in building our business markets and exploring new ones, but also provide an opportunity to showcase DFW’s pro-business climate, talented workforce, strong economy and great location.”
