News & Events
In response to the significant increase in the global demand for electronic engineering services from industries such as defence, manufacturing electronics design companies are successfully collaborating with selected local engineering companies to increase design capacities.
As projects evolve, grow and become more intense, collaboration between engineers in the electronics industry is now essential. Collaboration enables projects to be completed effectively, and will also ensure the continuation of large revenue-generating projects and engineering job creation.
Those at the helm of the revolution are blazing the way, and leaders of the industry are stressing that for the electronics industry and economies to grow, collaboration must become the norm, as well as increased capacity for engineering and manufacturing services.
The entire industry is coming to a point where one will not be able to successfully exist without the other, and isn’t that already the case? Electronics design and electronics manufacturing cannot provide a complete product without each other.
Manufacturing and engineering already go hand in hand. The existence of each field proves to make the other one better.
Frequently exposing SME manufacturers to larger projects will lead to a much more efficient manufacturing process; keeping production costs down, more exporting opportunities and job growth worldwide. This type of growth is more than necessary, it’s vital for the industry to thrive.
Manufacturing companies (like Hetech) have a firm belief in collaboration, and place a big stake in the concept as a whole. Expansion plans in manufacturing companies are imminent and unavoidable, and should include discussions with interstate companies to take manufacturing capabilities even further.
Companies that specialize in electronics manufacturing should not limit themselves to forming a network of outside engineers, although this is a wonderful direction to take. Each and every manufacturing company should be committed to continuing investing heavily in their internal engineering teams.
The reinforcement of development internally, within the company itself, will strengthen skill and overall performance. This is not limited to design, but manufacturing and project management as well. As with anything, strength truly does start from within. Establish that base, and then broaden it.
Any questions, thoughts and concerns regarding electronic design and electronic manufacturing can be directed to Hetech.
We’re more than happy to answer questions on the topic, as we look to be a front-runner in the relationship development between manufacturing and engineering.
This year, The PACIFIC 2019 International Maritime Expo for defence will be held from 8 – 10 October at the International Convention Centre in Sydney, Australia, and small-to-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from all across Queensland are preparing for this exposition.
Hetech, a leading Australian electronics design & manufacturing company, will be participating in this year’s PACIFIC 2019 expo in collaboration with the Queensland government, along with 15 other SMEs.
Hetech Will Showcase Its Electronics Design & Manufacturing Capabilities To The World
This year, Hetech will be focusing on showing off its ability to design and manufacture custom electronics packages to companies and governments from all across the world. This is the perfect opportunity for Hetech and other Australian companies to show their quality to international vendors and customers.
Hetech will be exhibiting its current projects, including developing technologies which are being used in future Australian naval products. With its proven track record in projects including PCB and schematics design, SMT and thru-hole assembling, electronics prototyping and more, Hetech is a leading choice for turn-key electronics design & manufacturing for both the Australian defence industry, and for private companies.
Collaboration Encourages Better Results For Australian SMEs
Participating collaboratively in trade shows and expos like the PACIFIC 2019 International Maritime Expo is a unique opportunity for SME manufacturers to collaborate, and learn more about the technologies and innovations that are driving the defence industry forward.
Not only that, but this is also a great chance for Australian companies to network with multinational companies and manufacturers, and learn more about larger projects.
This type of collaboration has a number of benefits for Australian SMEs like Hetech, such as keeping production costs down, creating more export opportunities, and helping to encourage job growth worldwide. This type of growth is essential for the continued health and development of the Australian defence maritime industries.

Innovation and growth start within our communities at home. At least that’s what we believe at Hetech. Since strength always comes from the roots, we have joyously involved ourselves in the planning of INNOV8 Logan.
Hetech is now, and always has been, proud to call Logan home. We want to contribute as much as we can to our hometown, inspiring local entrepreneurs to step out of their comfort zones and take their product to the next level.
One of the many goals of the INNOV8 Logan program is to share information about local startups and aspiring inventors and entrepreneurs. It’s important for connections to be made in this industry because we rely heavily upon the ideas and input of others to make it work.
Goals of INNOV8 Logan
INNOV8 Logan will fuel innovation hubs, co-working spaces, jobs, workshops, networking events and the sharing of open data. The goal is to inspire and connect, allowing young entrepreneurs and businesses to understand that working side by side is the key to successful manufacturing.
More than one hand in the pot is essential, and competitors have to learn to work together to build a successful local industry. Hetech has always been socially conscious and using INNOV8 Logan, we are more than willing to assist small businesses, helping them to thrive in any way possible. If our local manufacturing industry is to become stronger, then we must turn ourselves into a team.
Manufacturing companies, both large and small, will not be the only to benefit. Customers will have the best in manufacturing available to them at all times.
For example, perhaps Hetech is approached by a customer that has a product idea and needs assistance with funding, marketing or product development. If we have built the correct network of manufacturing companies, allowing us unlimited contacts, we can help connect that customer to the right people for the job. Manufacturing is constantly evolving, and only companies that can work together will see the best in benefits and growth.
Do you have a product idea and need a bit of guidance on funding ideas, or ensuring that it’s market ready? Contact Hetech today and let us help!
After a successful exhibit at Avalon Airshow, Hetech were honoured to host the AIDN April monthly meeting, with a massive attendance of about 80 people. Some great information was relayed, including presentations by Airbus, Volvo, Legacy, Queensland Government and Hetech’s own Steve Plunkett and David Edington.
The AIDN (Australian Industry & Defence Network Incorporated) is an organization that represents the interests of Australian small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) by connecting them with larger businesses within the defence and security industry. The AIDN represents through advocacy and member services.
Every month a meeting is held in a different location to outline and reaffirm AIDN objectives. Each meeting is meant review and relay industry capability information and updates, and offer support for SMEs as a whole. It is a great way for members of AIDN to stay connected with defence projects, suppliers and key contacts.
Details of April’s Meeting
The main points of April’s meeting hosted at Hetech focused heavily on connecting SMEs to defence projects, suppliers and manufacturers. Hetech was able to discuss our electronics design and involvement in defence manufacturing, which was a fantastic chance to showcase our facility, and our high level of manufacturing capabilities.
The Airbus presentation was particularly exciting, as it covered Project LAND2094, Phase 4, which deals with Airbus’ involvement in special ops helicopters. This project is set to create medium lift helicopters that can “undertake troop transport, search and rescue, special operations and counter-terrorism missions”.
The presentation at the AIDN meeting was meant to receive interest from SMEs on products and services for this exclusive project.
The Benefits of AIDN
As a member of the AIDN, Hetech is proud to say that we’ve invested in the growth of our company. Through our membership, we are placed in contact with larger companies that allow us to continue to develop our defence systems, which in turn makes us a stronger manufacturing company.
Through AIDN, SMEs like Hetech are presented with opportunities to connect with larger companies in the defence industry. Without a network like AIDN, it would be difficult for smaller manufacturing companies to make those imperative, business enhancing connections.
AIDN itself is constructed of a combined membership of 600 or so SME companies. The AIDN structures its territories and chapters to optimise and reflect the makeup of the defence and security industries present within each. Hetech is proud to be an AIDN member, and can honestly credit positive contacts made in the industry to AIDN and the connections the network provides.
The April meeting was a huge success, with Hetech given the chance to stand in the spotlight, showcasing our abilities, dedicated employees, fearless leaders and enormous aspirations. As an electronics design & manufacturing company that continues to grow, embracing new clients, change and technology, we were happy to contribute and offer our facilities and services to support SMEs, AIDN and the defence industry.
Hetech Manufacturing has expanded, allowing us the ability to further our reach, achieve faster turnaround times and take on additional engineers. We are thrilled to announce that we now have a separate building for our headquarters, giving us more space to do what we do best…turn concept from mind representation to reality.
Our new headquarters will house day-to-day operations for Hetech, and provides our engineers with a dedicated space and unlimited possibilities. The original building has been opened up, giving more than enough room for production and servicing. This increased capacity is allowing room for Class 3 workers, but that’s not all.
More operational space will give Hetech the ability to prepare for further quality certifications, such as AS9100. A company level certification, AS9100 is in compliance with a standard set by the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers). This type of advanced certification will make Hetech a recognized frontrunner in quality assurance regarding design, development, production and installation.
Every past, present and future client will benefit from the vast improvements at Hetech. Faster turnaround times and increased production capacities have arrived. Hetech now has better quality assurance than ever before, and we continue to improve with every company based decision we make.
Choosing Hetech has always meant security, and with our new headquarters featuring state of the art security practices, your product is safe through every stage of production. The new developments at Hetch allow us to go to a greater extent of above and beyond, which is exactly what we have planned for every client we interact with.
Our headquarters address is Building 14, 2404 Logan Road, QLD, 4113 Australia
The most important part of a product development and manufacturing company is vigilance when it comes to cyber security within IT infrastructure. The information sacrificed in even the smallest hack is detrimental to the existence of any business, but can hit manufacturing companies especially hard.
While it might sound like something out of a movie, extreme measures to prevent a breach in cyber security should be in place and frequently revised, updated and advanced. When manufacturing companies, like Hetech, suffer a breach of security…so much is lost.
Without protection and preparation, manufacturing companies can suffer complete operational disruption. Malware can, very simply put, shut down massive manufacturers (think Nissan and Merck & Co) and leave them unable to operate on any level. Employees are sent home while the company faces crippling setbacks.
Data theft is another big one. Cyber-criminals often target major companies through the release of malware. It’s much more involved than we’re making it sound here, but occurrences of theft, phishing scams, and corporate espionage are becoming far too common, and affecting corporate giants like Verizon Wireless.
No business is immune, and that’s why Hetech has just completed a major IT infrastructure upgrade to lock in security. At Hetech we take cyber security very seriously, and an upgrade was imperative to the way that we do business; safely, effectively and diligently.
What We Did
Hetech has gone in and performed a security overhaul. Our cyber security upgrade essentially means that we’ve got a brand new, “state of the art” server that connects our production facility with our new head office.
This connection is secure and efficient. The upgrade in security is moving Hetech forward further into the digitization of manufacturing, and closer to Industry 4.0. Our IT infrastructure and operation as a whole has increased in capability and capacity.
Why We Did It
As a leader in product development, Hetech believes that it’s our responsibility to protect delicate information belonging to the company and to our clients. Our operational technology deserves the best in cyber security, and our destination is the forefront of the manufacturing revolution.
We want cyber security relentless against file based and fileless security attacks. We want protection against those same attacks without the need for emergency security patching. We want control that is localized, stemming from one single console that allows us to see every aspect of our operational technology throughout the company at any given time.
We want complete control.
Preparing For The Future
The recently completed IT upgrade at Hetech is nothing other than fueling the way we do business now, and preparing for the way we’ll do it in the future. We are implementing plans and adopting new technologies today that will embrace the industry of tomorrow.
This intense preparation and dedication to the evolution of manufacturing and IT security makes Hetech the top contender for all of your product development needs. Contact us today.
Hetech recently had the opportunity to participate in the Avalon 2019 trade show for six days. Avalon, which is a trade show for the aerospace and defence industries, was the perfect time for Hetech to show off our latest products and our electronics design and manufacturing capabilities.
Thanks to the Queensland government, we were able to set up a booth at this event, and discuss our products and services with both business and interested individuals. We’re proud to have participated, and we look forward to the next Avalon Airshow, which will be held in 2021 – on the 100th anniversary of the Australian Air Force!
Our Highlights From The Avalon Airshow 2019
The Avalon Airshow is known as the largest airshow in all of the Southern Hemisphere – and this year was no different. There were a huge number of aircraft from all across the world, spread across multiple runways in the steamy Australian heat.
We loved getting to meet potential customers, individuals, and other exhibitors during the Avalon Airshow, but we didn’t spend the entire time at the Airshow working!
We spent some time touring the aircraft that were being shown – in particular, the Lockheed Martin F-35A Joint Strike Fighter caught our eye.
It was truly incredible to see one of these aircraft in-person – from the gigantic engine to the sleek, streamlined design, the F-35A truly looks like the next-generation aircraft that it is intended to be.
