Tucked away in Edwardstown, bespoke engineering firm Peterson Industries has been manufacturing parts used in the defence, mining and automotive industries since 1951.
Managing director Paul Bradley has watched the advanced manufacturing industry change over the past decade, particularly as 3D printing and automation impact on worker numbers, but knows he has to stay current to compete in an increasingly international marketplace.
Peterson Industries has also been a member of Business SA since its early days, and Paul says he has appreciated access to mentoring, key advice on industrial issues and even advocacy, particularly as the election approaches.
Key to the company’s success, he says, is its ability to listen to customer needs and meet them, and in building relationships.
