Australian electronics and tech industry leaders and REDARC recently announced that they’re set to double the company’s workforce over the next four years as part of a huge expansion of its Adelaide base.
The expansion is being fuelled by a $2.5 million Federal Government Next Generation Manufacturing Investment Programme grant, announced in August by the Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, Greg Hunt.
REDARC boss Anthony Kittel, said the grant would be used to purchase additional state-of-the-art machinery and equipment to enable the company to comply with international market regulations.
To house the new equipment, REDARC will be undertaking a major redevelopment of its Lonsdale manufacturing facility. As a result, the company expects to create around 100 new jobs during the next four years, mainly in the areas of innovation, advanced manufacturing, quality and business development.
“The new equipment will enable us to enhance our export capabilities and diversify into other markets, including defence and medical devices,” Mr Kittel said.
