The prestigious award focuses on valuable contributions to the defence sector, and we were selected as one of just three finalists!
The winner was announced during one of the biggest national defence networking events, the 2022 Defence Industry Dinner & Award Ceremony
on 3rd November in Adelaide.
Recent work in the defence sector has proven Elexon Electronics as a world-class electronics manufacturer and being nominated as a finalist is a huge result in itself.
“Last year, we won Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Business of the Year Award. This year, we competed at a national level … and succeeded. This new award recognises us as an established player in Australia’s defence sector“, proudly said Frank Faller, CEO of Elexon Electronics.
DTC is a national organisation that supports the Australian defence industry to develop capability and increase its competitive edge in global defence markets. The Resilience Award recognises members who have overcome challenges within the last three years by finding new ways of working. We showed how our manufacturing upgrade maintained high-quality standards of our products and services, and how it continues to deliver benefits to the defence ecosystem.
In DTC’s words, ‘Congratulations to Elexon Electronics for winning the Resilience Award for their ability to develop an Intelligent Industry 4.0 production facility, which assisted them in avoiding offshore production, and helped create new high-skilled manufacturing jobs. Where possible they design their products in a way that raw material, components as well as sub-assemblies can be sourced locally from well-established and longstanding suppliers. This allows them to eliminate the risk of supply chain disruptions due to delays and uncertainties in shipping from overseas locations.’
What a platform from which to present Elexon’s capabilities! Over 700 defence industry representatives attended, including keynote speaker and former Minister for Defence, Brendan Nelson. It was an opportunity to liaise with other industry leaders and led to conversations about possible new collaborations. Our thanks go to DTC for their efficient organisation of an amazing event.
“I am thankful to you, our customers. Without you we could not have built this story of resilience, both in defence and non-defence-related industries. We’ve appreciated your patience and understanding in the face of a worldwide component shortage. Thank you for your ongoing support as we’ve upgraded our offerings in a volatile market. You gave us opportunities to prove we could engineer the solutions you need. I am also thankful to my team, who have worked tirelessly over the last few years, believing we could deliver solutions that seemed impossible. It’s no secret that resilience is key to succeeding in our current times. As we work with you, we’ll keep on adapting, innovating and staying agile, so that together we’ll overcome obstacles and continue to kick goals!” summarised Frank Faller.
