At AME Systems, the safety of the workforce is paramount. AME Systems continually review and update policies, procedures and practices with a focus on ‘safety first’ to ensure they meet the latest OHS requirements.

AME Systems major success was in the Defence arena through the successful partnership with Boeing Australia in delivery of the electrical wiring system to support the Loyal Wingman project.

AME Systems Aerospace and Defence journey began in 2017 as the Australian Government started announcing they were looking forward into the future, to start spending large amounts of money in the industry. AME Systems management team began a Business Strategic Plan covering how they would venture out from Truck, buses and mining equipment and propel themselves into the Defence industry.

One huge milestone was to obtain AS9100 certification. AS9100 is the international Quality Management System standard for the Aviation, Space and Defense industry, and AME Systems wanted and needed it for their plan. Implementing this certification was a huge feat for a regional Victorian business however gaining AS9100 accreditation was successful in 2018 thanks to the AME Systems team. This certification has helped pave the way in the defence industry for AME Systems, making them a globally recognized and credible wiring harness business in the Aerospace and Defence industry.

AME Systems has a long history of local business and community involvement, and this ongoing relationship still forms the backbone of the company today. Some families have had three generations represented in the workforce over the years.

With a commitment to safety, continuous improvement and investment in both staff capability and new technology, AME Systems continue to lead the way in the electrical harness industry. Long term relationships with a number of large industry clients such as Kenworth Australia, is also testament to their capability, reliability and sustainability.

AME Systems now employs more than 400 people making AME Systems one of the largest locally owned businesses in Ararat. This has a huge impact in the small regional town of Ararat.
