POF client REDARC wins the 2014 Telstra South Australian Business of the Year award

REDARC, an innovative electronics manufacturer based in Lonsdale, SA, has cleaned up at the 2014 Telstra Australian Business Awards, winning the top prize for ‘South Australian Business of the Year’ as well as ‘Medium Business’ of the year. The awards were presented by the South Australian Treasurer and Minister for Small Business, Tom Koutsantonis, at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on 27 June.

REDARC manufactures a diverse range of electronic products used in the automotive, trucking, mining, industrial, recreational vehicle, defence, agricultural and marine markets.

In 1997, the organisation was taken over by Anthony and Michelle Kittel, who have transformed the business from a small operation into a research and development-driven manufacturer. Today, REDARC employs 95 people and has a customer base extending to North America, France and New Zealand.

Telstra Business Group managing director Will Irving said “REDARC is an outstanding family-owned technology business that has dynamic leadership and a strong culture of core values and ethics. It designs and manufactures a patented range of high value-add electronics products and invests throughout its business in its products, people, processes and systems.”

POF has been working with REDARC since 2007 and we have helped them protect a number of their innovative products such as the battery isolator and battery management system.

We would like to extend our warmest congratulations to Anthony, Michelle and everyone at REDARC.
