APS Industrial has announced that it will be relocating its Brisbane office to 49 Borthwick Avenue, Murarrie, effective from August 19, 2019.
The 1,500sqm facility provides a boost to APS Industrial’s ability to service the local Queensland market with increased local stockholdings and office space. Together these two factors enable greater local access to its product portfolio as well as the necessary capacity to support the ongoing recruitment of technical support, product management and customer service roles.
“APS Industrial is now over 12 months old and in this time we’ve seen a significant uptake of our products and services in Queensland which is very pleasing. To cater for this growing customer base and product demand – both now and into the future, we have invested in a new branch location,” said David Hegarty, managing director of APS Industrial.

“This significant increase in local stock-holdings paired with our new national distribution centre in Melbourne ensures we are well placed to get the products to our valued customers quicker than ever before and that’s incredibly important to us,” Hegarty continued.
The move follows the launch of APS Industrial on March 1, 2018 where its master distribution partnership with Siemens in Australia was announced as well as other core national distribution agreements with Weidmüller, Rittal and EPCOS (a TDK Group Company). Since those initial launch agreements, APS Industrial has also announced national distribution agreements with KATKO and Grace Engineered Products.
“From the outset of APS Industrial, our focus was clear – partner with the world’s leading industrial manufacturers to bring the broadest portfolio in the industry to Australia and match that with exceptional customer service,” said Hegarty. “There’s no question our Queensland team have lived up to those core promises and this new move enables us to continue and build on this moving forward”, said Ernest Van Niekerk, State Manager – Queensland, APS Industrial.”
APS Industrial has relocated its Melbourne office to 5-7 Corporate Avenue, Rowville, effective from the 1st of September.
The 4,500sqm facility is the new head office and national distribution centre of APS Industrial and includes an interactive product showcase room and state of the art conference facility.
APS Industrial managing director David Hegarty said since the company’s launch earlier this year, it had made increasing the company’s service level and delivery capability a core focus.
“We want our customers to enjoy doing business with APS Industrial and experience all the benefits that come from partnering with a local supplier,” said Hegarty.
“First and foremost this move gives us the scale to significantly increase our local stockholding and in turn deliver the products our customers need faster – both now and into the future. It also represents our new beginning and the new choice we provide industry,” he said.
The move follows the launch of APS Industrial in March 2018, where our master distribution partnership with Siemens in Australia was announced as well as other core national distribution agreements with Weidmüller, Rittal and EPCOS (a TDK Group Company).
Since those initial launch agreements, APS Industrial have also announced a master distribution agreement with KATKO.
APS Industrial and Siemens are also continuing a collaboration, with local stockholding for Siemens industrial products to be increased at APS Industrial’s head office and distribution centre in Rowville, Melbourne as well as across our extended branch network in Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and Sydney.
“This move reflects APS Industrial’s and Siemens’ shared commitment to deliver a positive customer experience,” said Hegarty.
“A seamless transition for customers is our primary focus as this move comes into effect. Furthermore, it will enable faster delivery and improved local support,” said he said.
APS Industrial is a technology partner formed by experienced leaders in the local industry and incorporates the existing businesses of Ramelec and HiTech Control Systems.
