- Milestone event for Selectronic, which specialises in the world’s most advanced multi-mode solar inverter products
- Promotes local manufacturing and highly technical workforce, Australian made and owned
Selectronic celebrated a milestone event in achieving serial number 200,000 of its product range, at an event held on Tuesday 20th March at its production facility in Chirnside Park, Victoria. The event was commemorated with special guest the Hon Tony Smith MP, Federal Member for Casey Victoria and Speaker of the House of Representatives.
A family-owned Australian business for more than 50 years, Selectronic is a leading manufacturer of multi-mode solar inverter products which now operates under the guidance of brothers Rod and Ken Scott.
Rod Scott, CEO for Selectronic, guided Tony Smith on a tour of the Selectronic facility, meeting the Selectronic team and learning how the flagship range of SP PRO solar inverter products are made, before helping to load and seal the 200,000th serial numbered product.
Other visiting guests included key representatives from the Smart Energy Council and Clean Energy Council, of which Selectronic is a founding member.
Rod Scott commented:
“We are delighted to celebrate this significant milestone for Selectronic with Tony Smith. As a team, we pride ourselves on the fact that Selectronic products are designed and made in Australia, something that has not changed for over 50 years.
Given our long experience with off-grid energy systems, we feel it is Australia’s time to shine. Australia has the opportunity to not just be a consumer, but also a producer and key player locally and to the world in this fast growing energy storage market.”
Having sealed the 200,000th serial numbered Selectronic product, Tony Smith commented:
“It’s great to see Selectronic, a family owned business based in Chirnside Park, successfully operating after five decades of continuous manufacturing.
Rod and his team’s ingenuity and adaptability in developing Selectronic into a leading manufacturer of transformers and inductors are inspiring. To have produced your 200,000th multi-mode inverter unit is a testament to your success as a company.
Today’s milestone is something that all of the team can be truly proud of. It is great to see that Selectronic are exporting quality Australian renewable energy inverter units around the world.”
