The company was originally founded in 1985 as an electrical and mechanical sales, service and manufacturing company. The first project was for Spring Valley beverages new manufacturing plant in Cheltenham Victoria that was eventually purchased and relocated to Cadbury Schweppes (now Schweppes Australia).
Initial projects covered automation design, configuration, installation and testing. Ongoing development of existing staff and the addition of new staff have allowed Automation Mechatronics to now provide large scale turn key projects.
Major projects have exceeded $8M and include the supply and installation of significant process items such as large tanks and fully automated valve manifolds. Despite this, Automation Mechatronics continue to service small clients and provide hourly rates services to rectify minor problems.
While the staff at Automation Mechatronics are constantly learning about new and improved products they also have significant experience working with the older generations of control system equipment. Many of these control systems have been running for more than 10 years and in some cases the manufacturer no longer supplies spare parts. Automation Mechatronics have experience in a wide range of upgrade paths designed to re-‐use code and minimise cost.
Initially founded in Melbourne, Automation Mechatronics have completed projects in all states of Australia. In addition to the Melbourne office we also have an office in Perth.
