    Melbourne Office

    Originally founded in 1985, Automation Mechatronics is headquartered in Melbourne, Victoria. In 2007 the business moved in our current business park and in 2009 upgraded into our current office and workshop space.

    The first project was for the new manufacturing plant of Spring Valley beverages in Cheltenham Victoria which was eventually purchased and relocated to Cadbury Schweppes (now Asahi Beverages Australia).

    Initial projects covered automation design, configuration, installation and testing. Ongoing development of existing staff and the addition of new staff has allowed Automation Mechatronics to now provide large scale process manufacturing turnkey projects.

    In 2014, Automation Mechatronics opened an interstate office in Perth, Western Australia. We provide ongoing project management and engineering services to our customers in Perth.
