Monty Compost and Hetech PCB's
  • Monty Compost is an innovative compost tool used to manage your compost efficiently and effectively.
  • World-first compost monitoring device and mobile app that work together to track your compost’s health, gamify your decomposition data and engage with your organics.
  • Hetech manufacture the PCBA’s for Monty Compost.

At Hetech, we work with customers who are both established and at the beginning of their life cycle, recently we started working with Ash Baxter on her product Monty, an innovative composting companion.

Ash is the true definition of an entrepreneur, coming up with her business idea in her last year of university at UQ, a local Brisbane university. After months of research, Ash came up with the idea of a tool to optimise the composting process which was then accepted into the ilab Accelerator program and received seed funding to take her business to the next level.

Hetech were approached by Monty Compost and Carbon Circuits to manufacture the PCBA’s (Printed Circuit Board Assemblies) for the product.

Hetech prides itself on being an expert Australian PCB manufacturing & assembly company that supplies PCB assembly solutions to businesses of all sizes across Australia.

Monty Compost Printed Circuit Board

Monty Compost Co is an innovative and intelligent environmental compost solution that aims to help make composting easy and efficient for everyone through the power of technology.

Monty takes out the composting learning curve, put Monty into your compost and it will tell you exactly what it needs through an app. Some great examples of the product in use are – Your compost needs to be turned. Your compost needs more waste. Composting made smarter, better and faster with our world-first compost monitoring device and mobile app that work together to track your compost’s health, gamify your decomposition data and engage with your organics.

The vision of the company is a world where 100% of our organic waste is recycled back into our soil. They believe that compost can be a big part of this and are working to enable anyone to do it.

Ash said of her recent visit to Hetech HQ:

As an Australian, and specifically Queensland, founded company, it was such an amazing experience seeing Monty being made in Queensland by Queenslanders.
After three years working on Monty through countless prototype and MVP iterations, having this level of production around it is wild.
It was even better being able to share it with the team and meet in person the people helping make Monty happen.“

It’s been a tough few years of component shortages and unfortunately, this doesn’t look to change for the rest of 2022 with shortages forecasted to continue throughout the rest of the year.

Supply chains to improve in late 2022

A report, titled “Tech, Media, and Telecoms Predictions 2022,” details that the conflict between the US and China over the supply chain of chips and minerals will remain heated for most of this year but will begin to improve in the latter half of 2022. Daniel Clarke, an analyst on the Thematic Research Team has said that consumers could expect the automotive and tech industries to be the most impacted. You can read the full Deloitte report here.

Rise of onshoring

Over the past year, we have also seen a trend of Australian businesses bringing their electronic manufacturing back to Aussie shores. This trend has been brought on by continued international conflict, component shortages and a lack of control over IP/process, redundancy. According to research published by the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre last year, more and more Australians are valuing the industry, and 72 per cent of Australians see it as important or very important, up 7 per cent between 2019 and 2021.

Government-backed industry

Brent Balinski from Australian Manufacturing was quoted saying, ‘We predict manufacturing and its role in sovereignty will be a 2022 election issue, with the investment in the industry by the federal government and the effectiveness of this and other industrial policies certain to be debated.’ Read more here.

At Hetech, we have been working with local businesses to bring their electronic manufacturing back to Australian shores and, sourcing components for our customers at a time when the world is seeing delays and shortages.

We have partnered with a range of companies such as CSIRO, Boeing Defence, Saab, WEIR, BV and FLSmidth on projects to reduce costs and integrate automation. We are also involved in a vast range of other projects for industries such as Mining, Renewables, Defence, Utilities and many more. Working with IoT/sensor solutions, PCB builds, insourcing, redesigning & designing electronics equipment for more efficient solutions.
