APC Technology Celebrates 30 Years and Their Best Financial Results to Date



APC Technology, a South Australian designer and manufacturer of harsh environment solutions, is celebrating 30 years of business.

Incorporated in 1984, APC Technology was a pioneer in the design and manufacture of COTS based rugged hardware. During the first 25 years a majority of contracts were predominately defence based and within Australia.

Today, APC Technology continues to work in the defence industry but has also diversified into oil & gas, mining, energy, food & pharmaceutical and other industrial manufacture. The organisation has developed a strong partnership and distribution network which now covers Asia, Europe and N&S America. This diversification has seen APC Technology grow from strength to strength in multiple markets across the globe.

Highlights over the last 12 months include multiple defence contract wins, the award of a major contract within the rail industry, which has subsequently doubled in size, and the continued growth of other key customers. The formation of APC Research, a wholly owned subsidiary dedicated to R&D, will ensure APC stays at the forefront of technology.

Additionally, the announcement that Singapore Technologies Kinetics (STK) has chosen to work closely with APC Technology on the upcoming Land 400 project, further highlights how far the company has come.

Peter Hodson, Chairman of the APC Technology board commented, “APC Technology started out with a corporate mission to make tough computers for tough conditions. Our recent financial results are proof that we have kept this goal integral to our business model over the last 30 years whilst evolving to keep pace with the changing demands of the market place.”

Reflecting on APC Technology’s successes, Scott Begbie, Managing Director commented, “APC Technology has always been about working with the customer to provide innovative solutions. Our clients value the depth and breadth of our skills and look to us to augment their own in-house engineering capabilities. It is testament to the efforts and ingenuity of the staff at APC Technology that we have more than doubled our turnover in five years, with a minimal increase in personnel. We have set in place a strategy to continue this trend over the next five years and I fully believe we will be successful in our endeavours.”

APC Technology is planning to celebrate their 30 years in business with a number of activities over the coming financial year. For more information please visit www.apctechnology.com.au.
