Ray Keefe 2011 Exponential Entrepreneur Of The Year Award Winner With Dr Marc Dussault

Successful Endeavours is Research and Development for hire focusing on the Electronics and the Embedded Software that runs under the covers of most modern products. We support Australian Electronics Manufacturers who are still making their products in Australia. In Victoria, where most of clients are based, this is a $7B industry and we believe it is worth looking after. We do the Electronics Design and Embedded Software Development that creates new products for these local manufacturers that are at the heart of much of the employment in Australia.

Here are a few statistics for the Australian Manufacturing sector:

  • Manufacturing is the largest economic sector in Victoria
  • Manufacturing is the largest employer in Victoria
  • Manufacturing is the largest exporter in Victoria
  • Even in the City of Casey, on the edge of Gippsland, it is still the biggest economic sector
  • In Australia, manufacturing is either directly or indirectly responsible for 29% of all employment
  • For every job directly related to manufacturing, there are 2.5 other jobs created to support it. This is the highest ratio of any of the economic sectors.
  • If we want to boost employment, manufacturing is the most effective way to do that.
  • Manufacturing is the same size in turnover as mining but employs 5 times as many people
  • Most Australian manufacturers are small businesses selling niche or highly specialised equipment, and many are exporters

Over the past 3 years Successful Endeavours and Ray Keefe have been winners or finalist for 15 awards for business and technical excellence:

Having been received both Business of the Year and the Industrial Electronics Design of the year awards shows that we are understand both business and technology. So if you want a product that is technically excellent and also profitable then we know what both sides of that equation look like.

Successful Endeavours is in the business of making Australian Electronics Manufacturers more profitable and more successful through our service offerings of:

The results for our Electronics Manufacturing clients are that the product costs less to manufacture giving them the option to either pocket the extra profits or price themselves to increase their market share. Either way they win.

If you are going to spend your Product Development budget creating a new Electronics Product then it makes sense to get the best ROI, return on that investment, that you can get.
