The Premier of South Australia, the Hon Mike Rann, MP today toured the facilities of REDARC Electronics at Lonsdale, South Australia and met with REDARC staff.
The business is involved in the research, design and manufacture of a range of electronic voltage converters, inverters, power supplies and battery chargers for the transport industry.
Mr Rann was visiting South Australian businesses to meet with Industry Leaders to determine impediments affecting company’s growth and to ascertain what infrastructure was needed to assist business in maintaining a competitive edge.
Mr Anthony Kittel, Managing Director of REDARC Electronics, said: "Premier Rann’s visit provided an excellent opportunity for the Premier to gauge first hand the diversity and growth of the electronics industry in South Australia."
The unsung electronics industry is emerging as one of the rising stars of the South Australian economy. Mr Kittel believes the growth will continue as the electronics industry becomes one of the three largest business sectors in South Australia in the next five years.
During his visit, Mr Rann was briefed on a range of REDARC activities, particularly those in continuing the fast growth of the company.
Mr Kittel said, “it was a great opportunity to discuss with The Premier how REDARC Electronics can work together with the State Government to improve the SA Economy”.
