The assemco story
Three partner companies established Assemco in 1996. They found a need and filled it. A dynamic team was installed and culture/corporate performance criteria were "set in cement".
Founded by three leading Victorian manufacturers, Bowell Corporation, Elsum Engineering, and Rae-Line Pty Ltd, Assemco started as a small assembly company in borrowed factory space, putting together Kenworth truck air conditioning units.
From humble beginnings in 1996, Assemco has grown into one of Australian’s most efficient manufacturing companies with a reputation for:
We have grown into a hub of hundreds of local and off-shore suppliers who entrust us with their products to deliver superior quality while benefiting from our exceptional customer service. We operate from a 150,000 square feet factory where we assemble more than 1,000 products for a diverse range of clients. We also have ISO 9001 accreditation.
We are proudly Australian owned and operated with the vision to grow our business for the success of our customers and staff. Moreover, we are passionate about keeping manufacturing on Australian soil to serve our varied client base and provide jobs for everyday Australians.
Assemco wouldn’t be the successful business it is today without our dedicated staff. Our unique flat-line management structure is the key to our rapid growth and strong reputation.
We believe in empowering our people by giving them full responsibility for managing their workload by introducing the concept of Master Technician for our production staff. Every Master Technician is assisted by the Assemco Support Team providing everything that is essential for delivering superior quality with the utmost efficiency.
Quality Assurance Team
We established a Quality Assurance Team to ensure the implementation of the most cost-effective methods while guaranteeing first-rate customer service and a high level of quality.
Our down-to-earth Management Team is focused on the success of our people through developing and growing them, resulting in a team of workers who are dedicated to our vision of delivering top-quality products at a competitive price and who are invested in our business as if it were their own.
The Master Technician system empowers our production staff to achieve exceptional productivity. This extraordinary result is accomplished through passionate engagement and a genuine focus on client satisfaction, giving our customers a sense of security.
“It’s our people who make us great.”
