Hetech had the pleasure of taking the latest Year 10 students from Park Ridge State School through our facility again.

The students are part of the school’s specialist STEM program and planning their career options with a visit to Hetech to see firsthand how advanced manufacturing works.

Following their visit to Hetech, students have the opportunity to join our work placement program or go on to complete a school-based manufacturing course, counted towards their QCE.

After 30 years in the industry, our Managing Director Mark Steiner said that the future of electronic manufacturing was more exciting than ever.

“The possibilities are truly endless. Progression, innovation, the future, it is all happening; but it will only continue if we spark the passion of the next generation,” Mark said.

“Right now, is a very exciting time to be in electronic manufacturing as we are starting to see more work around the technological and environmental problems in industries such as mining and space,” he said.

“New problems and ideas are born every day. It is our job, as professionals in the industry to pass on our passion and experience to the future leaders of our industry – creating awareness and excitement – opening their eyes to a future in electronic manufacturing where they can be the one to solve these problems.”

Park Ridge State High School electronics teacher Wayne Spyve said Hetech had been a terrific support for the student electronics program.

“It is a good opportunity for the students. The kids don’t know these emerging career options are out there,” Wayne said.

“It is rewarding to see the students build on their natural curiosity. Especially afterwards when they come to me and say, Sir, I’d like to work there.

“Listening to Mark share his story gives me with the materials to take back into the classroom to engage and inspire the students. Not only do they learn about electronic manufacturing but they learn what it means to be an entrepreneur.”

Hetech’s Managing Director, Mark Steiner joined Adam Gilmour, the CEO of Gilmore Space Technologies at the Gold Coast Chamber of Commerce where Adam spoke about the future of the space industry in Queensland.

Recognising the growing market opportunities for new space products and services, the organization is supporting an AU$150 million ($109 million) bid for the Federal Government’s Modern Manufacturing Initiative Collaboration (MMI-C) grant to advance space technology manufacturing in Australia. And since most space manufacturing today involves 3D printing technology, the ASMN promises plenty of additively manufactured parts will go to its rockets and satellites.

Led by Gilmour Space Technologies, one of Australia’s top space manufacturers, the ASMN will be a genuinely industry-led project that will provide the framework and infrastructure needed to unlock collaborations, create jobs and capability, attract private investment, and advance Australian space technologies from initial concept through to commercialization and launch.

With over AU$88 million ($64 million) raised since being founded in 2012, Gilmour Space is one of the country’s largest sovereign low-cost hybrid launch vehicle developers. The Queensland-based company plans to launch the first Australian made rockets and satellites to low Earth orbit (LEO) starting in 2022. The company is highly immersed in 3D printing high-performance rocket and space components and received $3.7 million in investment funding in 2017 to develop its launch vehicles that use 3D printed rocket fuel.

The ASMN aims to establish three new space facilities centered in Queensland. The first will be a standard test and manufacturing plant, enabling members to advance their space research and technology development at a lower cost. This is followed by an advanced manufacturing facility for building commercial rockets and satellites anchored to Gilmour Space and an orbital spaceport in North Queensland that will help launch many of these products to orbit.

Did you know we are an ISO9001:2015 accredited and are on our way to be AS9100D accredited? We also build to J-STD-001/IPC-A-610 class 3.
AS9100D is the international Quality Management System standard for the Aviation, Space and Defense (AS&D) industry. The AS9100D standard sets quality management system requirements for the challenges faced by these complex industries.

Quality is not just a word it’s a mantra that we at Hetech live by. We are constantly striving to improve and meet our customer’s expectations. With this in mind, we are well on the road to our AS9100 Certification and hope to have it implemented by February next year.
