The assemco story

Three partner companies established Assemco in 1996. They found a need and filled it. A dynamic team was installed and culture/corporate performance criteria were "set in cement".

Our History

Founded by three leading Victorian manufacturers, Bowell Corporation, Elsum Engineering, and Rae-Line Pty Ltd, Assemco started as a small assembly company in borrowed factory space, putting together Kenworth truck air conditioning units.

From humble beginnings in 1996, Assemco has grown into one of Australian’s most efficient manufacturing companies with a reputation for:

  • Dedication
  • Excellence
  • Efficiency
  • Quality


We have grown into a hub of hundreds of local and off-shore suppliers who entrust us with their products to deliver superior quality while benefiting from our exceptional customer service. We operate from a 150,000 square feet factory where we assemble more than 1,000 products for a diverse range of clients. We also have ISO 9001 accreditation.


We are proudly Australian owned and operated with the vision to grow our business for the success of our customers and staff. Moreover, we are passionate about keeping manufacturing on Australian soil to serve our varied client base and provide jobs for everyday Australians.

Our People

Assemco wouldn’t be the successful business it is today without our dedicated staff. Our unique flat-line management structure is the key to our rapid growth and strong reputation.

Master Technicians

We believe in empowering our people by giving them full responsibility for managing their workload by introducing the concept of Master Technician for our production staff. Every Master Technician is assisted by the Assemco Support Team providing everything that is essential for delivering superior quality with the utmost efficiency.

Quality Assurance Team

We established a Quality Assurance Team to ensure the implementation of the most cost-effective methods while guaranteeing first-rate customer service and a high level of quality.

Management Team

Our down-to-earth Management Team is focused on the success of our people through developing and growing them, resulting in a team of workers who are dedicated to our vision of delivering top-quality products at a competitive price and who are invested in our business as if it were their own.

Remarkable Results

The Master Technician system empowers our production staff to achieve exceptional productivity. This extraordinary result is accomplished through passionate engagement and a genuine focus on client satisfaction, giving our customers a sense of security.

“It’s our people who make us great.”

Danny Vorhauer, CEO Assemco

Our Difference

We operate Assemco based on five key principles:

  1. Inclusive = everyone’s treated equally
  2. Respectful = we treat each other with dignity
  3. Pragmatic = we do what works
  4. Innovative = we’re always improving
  5. Solution-focused = we look for the best outcome for all

Unmatched Loyalty

As a result, we run a dynamic company with a flexible team of people who love coming to work and express a loyalty unmatched in the industry. We continually strive to build on our culture where every person feels a part of the Assemco family, and everyone is valued for what they bring to the business.

It’s teamwork, from start to finish, which benefits our clients, business, and staff.

We are Assemco.

High-Quality Standards

Assemco has a dedicated Quality Assurance Team that is committed to establishing the most cost-efficient methods whilst supporting our customers' high-quality requirements.

The Assemco team is committed to delivering your product on-time and to your quality standard. Assemco is accredited with ISO 9001.

Assemco has a broad spectrum of customers over various industries. We are able to tailor our services to meet the needs of any customer.



Our Unique Internal Management System

One of the key reasons that we are extremely efficient in all that we do, is our unique management system.

Assemco has a flat line corporate structure. Our Master Technicians (production staff), are encouraged to manage and maintain their own workload, which empowers them to achieve the best result for our customers. This creates individual accountability within our organisation.

Our management team supports, develops, and enhances our Master Technicians, ensuring customers receive the highest quality and the most efficient production, supply, and logistics services.

A History of Satisfied Partners

Established in 1996, our success has been based on our ability to deliver component assembly and supply services at a cost and quality standard more attractive than may be achieved by a customer's internal manufacture. Our highly skilled and flexible workforce allows for virtually any type of assembly to be undertaken.

We have a proven ability to exceed our customers' expectations and credit this to our success-driven company culture. This has continually motivated our employees to strive for excellence in the workplace to achieve the best possible result for our customers'.
