Starting in the Adelaide shed of founder Andrew Downs, SAGE quickly outgrew its humble beginnings and established a strong reputation for industrial automation in South Australia.

Expansion interstate was the next logical step, and Melbourne, Victoria, was the perfect fit.

Fostering our existing working relationship with Ford, SAGE began establishing a local presence in Victoria, developing our close links to the manufacturing and automotive sectors.

SAGE Melbourne’s early start saw a small team sharing office space with two other companies in Port Melbourne back in 2004. In 2006, Paul Markwick, still with SAGE to this day, relocated from Adelaide to head up the new Melbourne business.

Quickly establishing a 24/7 service offering, Goodyear Belting became our first service level agreement (SLA) customer – remaining with us to this day. Our first significant project in Melbourne was in the food and beverage industry, providing an automation solution for Warrnambool Cheese and Butter’s new dairy plant.

Now located in Southbank, our SAGE Group Melbourne office, along with two more offices in Geelong and Keysborough, the team has grown to more than 100 staff members, offering service to the entire state and backed by national coverage.

Through our SAGE Group offering, you can now gain access to not only automation services but a suite of digital transformation solutions – from automation and training to consulting and industry expert hiring – for a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, Defence, transport, utilities, resources, energy, and smart cities.

The SAGE Melbourne office houses SAGE Automation, Nukon, Skills Lab, and Embedded Expertise – providing you with the Digital Key to unlock your digital transformation goals.
