Tasmanian tech firm Definium has been contracted by leading national equipment hire company Coates to design, manufacture and supply some 5,000 hi-tech tracking devices.
Featuring easy to install tracking and monitoring system, the new devices will be deployed across Coates’ fleet of vehicles and equipment around the country, providing the company with substantially greater efficiencies in fleet deployment and use.
Tasmania’s Minister for Science and Technology Michael Ferguson, said up to 7,500 more are expected to be commissioned over the next year.
“Definium has been successful in receiving support under a number of our manufacturing programs over recent years and has been active in working with us to promote Tasmanian tech capability around the nation and world,” the Minister said.
“Over its history, Definium has manufactured tens of thousands of digital devices right here in Launceston and the collaboration with Coates is another fantastic achievement that has led to even further growth of Definium which is now 18 employees strong.
“I congratulate Coates in recognising the talent and quality solutions Definium has to offer in delivering their fleet-wide tracking upgrade.”
