SRX Global opens new prototyping facility in Dandenong

Customers include the CSIRO, Rio Tinto, ResMed and Siemens Rail

Electronic manufacturing firm SRX global has opened a new $125,000 prototyping facility in Dandenong, Victoria.

It is hoped the prototype facility will deliver six new jobs through a rapid prototype line, which will enhance the company's technical capabilities.

SRX Global’s local customers include the CSIRO, Rio Tinto, ResMed and Siemens Rail.

Its core markets include medical devices, communications, security, defence and industrial – manufacturing the world’s smallest ultrasound machine.

Victorian technology minister Gordon Rich-Phillips, who opened the new facility, said the company was one of Australia's pre-eminent electronic manufacturing companies.

“Significantly, the company’s export market contributes up to 75 per cent of its production," he said.

"This is comprised of direct exports and manufacturing into products by their clients for subsequent export sales to the USA, Europe and Asia."

SRXGlobal also delivers design for manufacture and test services, procurement, printed circuit board and box building assembly, testing and repair services, and quality management.

It has sales offices in Sydney, the UK and Singapore and manufacturing facilities in Dandenong, Malaysia and New Zealand.

It employs approximately 200 people at Dandenong, 125 in Malaysia and 75 in New Zealand.

Total Australian sales turnover is more than $35 million, and over $60 million globally.

“Investments like these are demonstrating the confidence that technology companies like SRXGlobal have in Victorian manufacturing and, more broadly, the Victorian economy," he said.
