A destination of choice for multinational tech conglomerates
Siemens and its national distribution partner APS Industrial (APS) have announced the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Adelaide’s inner southern suburbs.
The site is the first non-Siemens facility worldwide to manufacture and assemble the company’s air circuit breakers, a critical piece of technology required for all infrastructure where a high demand for low voltage power is required – such as large buildings and manufacturing sites.
This product is in high demand globally, and the new domestic manufacturing capability is set to reduce lead times from 12 – 24 weeks to as little as one to four weeks. The new facility is also expected to create more than 150 local technology jobs over the next 10 years.
This project is just the latest in a long and proud history of Siemens in Adelaide – which began in 1872 with the establishment of the Overland Telegraph line stretching from Adelaide to Darwin.
Siemens technology can be found supporting critical infrastructure, industry and iconic South Australian brands – everything from Cooper’s Brewery to Haigh’s Chocolates and more.
