Jobs boost for electronics firm ahead of expansion

Adelaide-based Entech Electronics will double its local production capacity with the help of a $1.75 million Future Jobs Fund grant, creating 60 direct jobs in advanced manufacturing.

The grant forms part of a total investment of $3.5 million, which Entech will use to move to a new, upgraded facility with more capacity to manufacture products targeting the high-value defence, aerospace and medical technology industries.

Direct jobs created in Adelaide’s north through the project include electronics assemblers, technicians, engineers, team leaders and positions in logistics and procurement. Entech expect that in addition to the direct jobs created, more than 200 indirect jobs will also be created across South Australia.

Entech MD Wayne Hoffman said the creation of 60 or more positions in Entech’s advanced manufacturing facility is exciting for Entech and also for other high-technology design and marketing businesses who need manufacturing services.

“High-tech, high-reliability, high-value and niche products represent the future of manufacturing in Australia and we are proud to be at the forefront of the precision electronics market,” said Mr Hoffman.

While Entech supplies high quality electronic components across many industries, the medical and defence technology industries have become a focus for the company, with clients including Raytheon, Thales, Micro-X and Ellex Medical.
