Elexon Group rises from the ashes with new factory

Manufacturing News

High tech electronics manufacturer Elexon Group has relaunched following a massive fire that destroyed their facilities in August, last year.

The group, which operates the Elexon companies, Titley Scientific and TPS, officially opened its new facility 1.5 kilometres from the former site, in Brendale, Brisbane, just nine months after fire gutted its original factories.

The company says they used the fire as an opportunity to change the way they design and manufacture, creating a new Industry 4.0 facility in the wake of the fire.

“Embarking on the Elexon 2.0 journey, the company is shifting its focus from recovery towards quality and continuous improvement, setting the state for the future in alignment with the innovative Elexon2Zero program,” Elexon Electronics CEO Frank Faller says.

“Getting an all-new facility up and running in such a short period of time has been a tremendous undertaking, it simply would not have been possible without the help of industry, government, partners and as we’ve spoken about before – even competing companies that stepped in to help!

“Our journey has highlighted that it’s not just about what we create, but how we work together and adapt that truly defines our success.”

The group supports industries across mining, automotive, acoustic monitoring, water instrumentation, defence and pathology.

Elexon says that the new facility’s setup enables full visibility planning, complete material tracking, automated replenishment, all supported by intelligent material handling.

It adds that the new site also features specialised machines such as 3D Solder Paste Inspection, 3D CT x-ray equipment, 3D Automated Optical Inspection, and flying probe testers.

“Today’s event is a testament to the incredible resilience and determination of the Elexon team,” QLD Minister for Regional Development, Manufacturing and Water, Glenn Butcher says.

“Elexon are one of the biggest advocates for Queensland’s manufacturing sector.

“Our government is proud to have supported them with the $890,000 Made in Queensland grant to increase production capacity, reduce manufacturing costs and create new jobs.”
