On the 27th of February REDARC celebrated their partnership with the Australian Made Campaign by officially launching the iconic Australian Made logo.
Attending the launch event, Ben Lazzaro, Chief Executive Australian Made Campaign said, “It’s fantastic that REDARC has chosen to celebrate its Australian credentials by carrying the trusted Australian Made logo on its products. While REDARC is making a powerful statement about its product offering, it is also demonstrating its commitment to promoting local manufacturing and its support of the local electronic products industry.”
The time is right

After 40-years in business, REDARC is still determined to continue to excel as a manufacturer in Australia.
REDARC Managing Director, Anthony Kittel said, “With a growing export portfolio, the time was right to bring more attention to our Australian-made products,because we believe that ‘Australian Made’ is a point of competitive advantage,” Anthony said, “We know that fellow Australians also feel strongly about supporting local industry, and using the Australian Made logo is the easiest way for customers to identify these products,” he added.
Australian Made and tested for Australia’s harshest conditions
“When a product is known to be made in Australia, there is an immediate connection to higher quality standards,” Anthony said.
To ensure that quality remains REDARC’s hallmark, their productsare built and tested for Australia’s harsh conditions. Their state-of-the-art manufacturing and testing capability coupled with continuous improvement processes, mean that REDARC productsbenefit from an ever-increasing level of durability.
Growing export business

REDARC is currently taking their domestically proven products to relevant export markets including North America (USA, Canada, Mexico), UK and Europe, New Zealand, the Middle East, South Korea and South Africa.
Anthony said, “Australian Made is a strength that we place front and centre in our communications, and the logo is a brilliant tool that reinforces this message visually.”
