REDARC Electronics has won a further government export contract to Singapore for the supply of on-board power management and control systems.
The Adelaide company, which was awarded a Defence Global Competitiveness Grant in December last year, will supply the government customer in a multiyear, multimillion-dollar deal.
REDARC managing director Anthony Kittel welcomed the ongoing growth of the Government business through exports.
He said: “The commitment of the Australian Government to support Australian companies establish competitive offerings for export has proven to be a winner.
“Our products are world class and have a reputation for being the best, and now with our capability improvements thanks to the grant, we have been able to develop and deliver a competitive solution into new customer markets.”
REDARC Defence Systems’ Mike Hartas said the 2020 grant was a great boost to the company team.
Hartas said: “This long-term contract allows us to grow some new positions in the team and will contribute to the development of new defence focused products into the future.
“As an Australian owned company, (we) continue to support a number of our local suppliers over the coming years.”
REDARC Electronics was established in 1979, and recently completed a $22 million capital expansion project, which was supported by a $2.5 million federal Next Generation Manufacturing Investment Program grant.
The company’s Lonsdale factory added 3,000sqm of advanced manufacturing space (pictured), new state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and systems and new sustainable power infrastructure.
