A new assembly line was officially opened at leading Victorian global digital and radio manufacturer, Radio Frequency Solutions, by the Victorian Minister for Manufacturing, Exports and Trade, Richard Dalla-Riva.

The new assembly line will add $16 million per annum in exports to the company’s annual revenue of $60 million.

“Radio Frequency Systems have invested close to $1 million on the infrastructure of this new assembly line – and that is a significant investment in the future of their business and their workforce here in Victoria,” Mr Dalla-Riva said.  “Furthermore, I am delighted to say this company is also an example of growth in our state’s manufacturing industry and will open a second assembly line in the near future which will provide further employment for local workers.”

Radio Frequency Systems Pty Limited (RFS) designs, manufactures and installs cable, antenna and tower systems plus radio frequency subsystems.  It has manufacturing centres in Germany, France, USA, Brazil, Russia, China, Mexico, India and Australia with its headquarters in Melbourne.

The new assembly line will employ 140 staff at the Melbourne manufacturing plant and also generate additional jobs.
