Milestone for Broens Industries

Last week, September 18, Broens Industries celebrated 30 years in business at a special luncheon held at the plant, and attended by over 300 industry leaders and dignities.

Visitors were told how Carlos Broens has grown the company from a two-person tool making business in 1979 to employing around 180 people at the leading edge of manufacturing.

Parliamentary Secretary for Innovation and Industry Richard Marles congratulated the Sydney-based high tech engineering firm on its 30 years of successful operations.

“Broens and its two Adelaide subsidiaries, Static Engineering and Calbic Precision Engineering, produce world leading high technology products for the automotive and aeronautical sectors,” Marles said.

“The company has a rolling program of strategically investing in the latest technology to enhance its operational capability across the board and invests heavily in staff skills, including training 40 apprentices across its three divisions.”

“Their Ingleburn plant is producing hydraulic and electronic power steering systems that are world firsts and have been sought by major international automotive producers,” Marles said.

“At the same time, Broens and its subsidiaries are involved in tooling for composite structure components for the Boeing Dreamliner and the Airbus A380, as well as being in the running for work associated with airframe and engine tooling for the Joint Strike Fighter.”

Marles said the company had shown just how it was possible to prosper through innovation in a particularly competitive industry.
