Welcome to Advantage Engineering
Tool Making Press Moulding
Advantage Engineering is an Australian owned and operated company that was established in Highett in 1957 producing components for Carpet weaving machinery and a variety of pressed metal parts.
Entry into the Automotive market in 1982 was followed by the addition of plastic injection moulding to the company's capability.
The company's involvement in the automotive industry continued to grow, leading to expansion into a larger plant in Cheltenham in 1989.
Our range of hardware for sliding curtains was introduced in 1990, and the range continues to expand in reaction to varying requirements and demands of customers in the transport industry.
Accreditation to ISO 3902, now ISO 9002 for Quality Management System was achieved in 1993, and is still in place today.
Another move to larger premises in Braeside came in 1999 which provided the opportunity to build a plant specifically to cater for the current requirements and allow for future growth.
