In a positive development for the South Australian advanced manufacturing industry, Ellex Precise has been commissioned to help drive the export growth of Adelaide-based company MyLight Pty Ltd.

MyLight designs and manufactures a range of hand-crafted, personalised light boxes for commercial use, capitalising on the growing trend towards custom consumer products.

Following considerable commercial success in Australia, MyLight is now set to launch into the global market.

Drawing on its extensive experience in advanced manufacturing and engineering design/development, Ellex Precise will work with MyLight to position the MyLight product for mass manufacture, undertaking a number of services, including: prototyping, tooling, laser customisation and component manufacture. Ellex Precise will also contract manufacture the MyLight product.

“The MyLight product is already proven in the Australian market. It is now a matter of refining its manufacture in order to support increased volumes. Essentially, it is about getting it to export-ready status”, commented Grant Tinney, Ellex Precise Director.

According to MyLight founder Greg Vowles, the decision to contract Ellex Precise came down to his desire to work with a company that could drive the project though all production processes, including: design, supply chain management, customisation, production and fulfilment – and to exacting standards.

“I was keen to partner with a business which could oversee all aspects of product commercialization,“ said Mr. Vowles.

“Whilst I needed to increase capacity in order to access export markets, particularly in the US, I wasn’t willing to sacrifice attention-to-detail,” added Mr. Vowles.

The fact that Ellex Precise is a South Australian company was also important to Mr. Vowles.

“I do feel that it is important that Australia, and South Australia in particular, continues to support and grow the local manufacturing industry. We need to ‘buy local’ whenever possible and not just place all of our eggs in the mining basket.”

MyLight expects to commence the export of its MyLight product into key export markets in early 2013.
