The right place for technology
APAC Infrastructure is an Australian metal fabrication company dedicated to high tech industries in the commercial, industrial, and defence sectors. Our team is committed to evolving our solutions to meet the rapidly changing needs of our rapidly changing world, ensuring your team deliver solutions at the very forefront of technological development. APAC develops made-to-measure height systems for four primary market segments;

We also help many Australian companies bring their ideas and products to life through a plethora of intricate machining solutions, along with a full complement of injection moulding services, including milling of moulds themselves, all right here in Queensland.
APAC work closely with many innovative renewable energy companies to integrate electrical power systems, microcontrollers, and custom PCBs into our systems. We are a firm backer of Australian technology, working on exciting developments in blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLTs).
APAC believes its innovative success is largely due to its core belief of maintaining a flat organisational architecture. This allows rapid brainstorming and prototyping, where front-line staff often lead the development of new product lines.

What We Do
Operating from a fabrication facility on the Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia, we carry out all of our contracts in-house from the initial drawing to support, documentation through to fabrication and shipping. Business today is dictated by project economics and we often hear in the news that manufacturing in Australia is simply not economical. While low cost steel products imported from China certainly do have their place, when it comes to project lifecycle and total cost of ownership (TCO) there’s no substitute for high grade locally manufactured hardware, tailored for the specific environmental and mechanical conditions faced by your application. The proof of this is in the pudding – APAC’s success is an example of how this approach is reversing the trend and bringing jobs back to home soil.
APAC Infrastructure is a firm supporter of Australian sovereign capability and frequently works with national and international defence primes in support of projects across the Asian and Indo-Pacific regions. In order to meet the high quality requirements demanded by such partners, APAC is well-versed in NATO military standards (MIL / STANAG) as well as being fully committed to its progress towards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications.
Safety is our No. 1
A quote I heard not long ago struck a chord with me – “If you knew how quickly your boss would replace you after you die, you’d pay more attention to your family than your job”. For those of us in the construction and manufacturing industries, the most important reason for safe working is not at work at all. APAC is committed to fostering a workplace culture that promotes safety above speed – we work to identify and control hazards and support the health and well-being of our people so that at the end of the day we all get to go home.
APAC Infrastructure has its primary manufacturing facility in Caloundra, located in the beautiful Sunshine Coast region of Queensland. We're located about a 45 minute drive from the Brisbane CBD and happy to arrange a tour and demonstration of our capabilities.
APAC comprises of a tight-knit team of tradespeople - sheet metal workers, boilermakers, and machinists, with a small complement of support staff in accounting and administrative roles.
