When SAGE decided to open an office in another state, Melbourne, Victoria was a logical choice. We had already been working for Ford and our close links to the manufacturing and automotive sectors was a strong tie.
Andrew Downs found our first office in Salmon St Port Melbourne which we shared with two other companies in 2004 and soon after employed Robert Craig, as the first employee. In 2006 Paul Markwick relocated from Adelaide to head up and grow the new Melbourne business that already had five employees.
Soon after we added a 24/7 service and established our very first SLA customer, Goodyear Belting who are still an SLA customer to this day. Although Holden was one of our largest clients in SA, we could not crack them and looked towards Food and Beverage and Utilities as sectors with growth.
Our first significant project was with Warrnambool Cheese and Butter, providing the automation for a new dairy plant. Our new sector focus on Defence really paid dividends as SAGE were selected to provide the electrical services for a new countermeasure manufacturing facility in Lara for Chemring.
We opened an office in Tasmania focusing on Water and Food and Beverage sectors and now have offices in Launceston and Hobart with nine employees. New contracts with Thales Mulwala, City West Water and the `set to work commissioning’ for the Navy’s LHD’s built in Williamstown, all significant projects in our journey.
Recently, SAGE Melbourne delivered the ITS for the Monash Freeway Upgrade in the process gaining Vic Roads accreditation and adding infrastructure to our sectors. This is officially Victoria's longest managed motorway project and its innovative testing method reduced traffic congestion during commissioning. It allowed switch-on of lane use management and variable speed limit signs 4.5 weeks early.
SAGE Automation Melbourne is currently 59 people strong and looking towards the future with optimism.
