Manufacturing in Australia means Innotech are supporting the Australian economy and keeping Aussies employed. We design and manufacture our products in-house, which enables us to develop products efficiently, and ensure product supply and support is on your doorstep. This adds value to your business and your clients.
Making our products here in Australia was an easy decision for us. We care about quality control and embrace client feedback to guide product development. Having our circuit board assembly and plastic moulding happen 30 meters away, rather than 7000 kilometres away, suits these priorities.
Responding quickly and effectively to client and industry needs is a core focus that we achieve thanks to our in-house expertise and facilities. When you buy an Australian product like Innotech, you can have confidence in the quality and know that support is just a phone call away. You are also supporting Australian employment and the local economy.
We love visitors here at Innotech. We enjoy the look of wonder and disbelief on their faces when they take a tour around our headquarters and see the extent of our facilities. Whether it’s our 3D prototyping printer, our 220 ton moulding machine, our surface-mount assembly line, our conference room or lecture theatre, we are proud to invest in making sure we can surpass expectations when it comes to our in-house capabilities.
Innotech Control Systems Australia - Brisbane HQ
Innotech was established in 1984, and since this time has grown from a small family business run by Stephen and Virginia Miranda to a global success with approximately 100 staff across Innotech headquarters in Brisbane and our Sydney office.
While the company has grown, it is still owned by the Miranda family and now has other family members established as Directors and key decision makers, ensuring stability for our clients and staff for many years to come.
Throughout this growth, Innotech has always maintained its core values of excellent customer service and commitment to industry.
The Mass Electronics Group consists of the following divisions:

In addition to developing our own products, Mass Electronics Group also undertakes projects with external partners such as:
Each division of the company has an important role within the business, and working together we are able to provide innovation and cost-effective solutions, directly suited to client requirements.
Having all of our divisions housed in the same facility means our product development process is very agile. This allows us to respond quickly to industry needs and iterate on product designs without the difficulty and cost that comes with overseas manufacturing.
SMT (Surface Mount Technology) Line
Multiple company divisions are involved in bringing an Innotech product to market. This development process involves three stages:
Innotech Controls determines the market needs, which is achieved through the direct face to face contact with all aspects of the HVAC and Building Automation industry. This is done using trade shows, conferences and client meetings with our local, national and international Distributor network.
Innotech holds biennial conferences for our International Distributor network both at Innotech HQ in Brisbane Australia and in North America, allowing "Open Forum" discussions and "Open Development" of products, to ensure we create client-focussed outcomes, meeting market costs and expectations. Many ideas come from our Distributors and their clients, and implementing these features has proven success for many years.
The sales team is made up of tradespeople with backgrounds in HVAC/Controls/BMS, so we know the people who will be using the product and target the usability to suit them specifically.
Once a business case is established and determined to be viable, the project is documented, development teams are selected and the project is undertaken by our R&D division Innotech Pty Ltd.
When Innotech Controls has completed the product planning, Innotech Pty Ltd's R&D department is provided with a breakdown of our clients requirements and a target price.
The extensive R&D team consists of over 20 full-time, Hardware, Software, Firmware, Testing, Document Writers, Industrial Designers and Technical Support personnel.
Our R&D capabilities include:
The development process is driven from the Innotech Controls Sales/Engineering team, with frequent reviews, testing, modifications and costing updates.
Using this 'Open Development' process allows Innotech to deliver user-friendly solutions.
Throughout development, the manufacturing division works directly with the R&D team to ensure the product design, hardware and selected components will fit with optimum manufacturing processes.
Using common components and automated procedures helps to lower our labour costs which translates to client savings.
Our in-house manufacturing capabilites include:
Conducting the entire product development and manufacture process in-house, combined with the level of expertise in each company division, allows Innotech to have a very high level of design and quality control. These processes have also enabled Innotech to build a reputation of reliability, sustainability, innovation and usability.

From our flexible Maxim and Genesis Direct Digital Controllers (DDCs) to our ATOM Energy Management software, our entire range is designed and manufactured right here in Brisbane.
In-house development and manufacturing benefits our clients through:
Innotech prides itself on excellent customer service and integrating industry input and feedback into our product range. This open communication has allowed Innotech to build products to suit a wide range of applications such as:
Having this rigorous process, staff skills, quality control and in-house expertise allows Innotech and the Mass Electronics Group to meet the specific needs of industry quicker and more effectively than most multi-national imported brands.
Our core belief of listening to clients, and development based on those criteria, has proven success over multiple decades. National & International companies look to Innotech and the Mass Electronics Group to develop and manufacture their products and provide solutions to their needs.
We refuse to impose ongoing licensing fees and do not support non-negotiable service and maintenance contracts like many manufacturers. This ensures the Innotech solution is an up-front cost, has unparalleled life-cycle costs, saves the client money and ensures they have control over their own destiny. Why settle for less?
