Entech is the latest in a series of local businesses to receive taxpayer-funded grants through the Government’s future jobs fund.

Entech says the grant is part of a $3.5 million investment in a new, upgraded manufacturing facility with a greater capacity to create products for the defence, aerospace and medical technology industries.

Entech, which supplies electronics components to a range of industries, employs about 80 people in Devon Park and also runs a manufacturing plant in China.

The Government said today the grant would create a range of direct jobs in Adelaide’s north and more than 200 indirect jobs across the state.

Entech managing director Wayne Hoffman said the expansion was the largest single project undertaken by the company.

“The creation of 60 or more positions in our advanced manufacturing facility is exciting for Entech and also for other high-technology design and marketing businesses who need manufacturing services,” he said in a statement.

“High-tech, high-reliability, high-value and niche products represent the future of manufacturing in Australia and we are proud to be at the forefront of the precision electronics market.”

Treasurer Tom Koutsantonis said Entech would double its production capacity in Adelaide, allowing the company to win more high-value contracts.
