Our PCB Manufacturing and PCB Assembly (PCBA) services offer small to large volume production. We also provide electronic design and prototyping services, if needed. Alternatively, just send us your gerber files, BOM, centroid (XY) data, board specs and quantity. Our engineers will work closely with you, to aim for the best quality and quickest possible lead time.

Cost-effective PCBA: low overheads, passing savings onto our customers.

Rapid PCBA: quotes back in about 48 hours.

Informative production: daily or weekly progress updates.

PCBA made easy - gotta love the power of stencils, reflow ovens, and pick & place robots.

Information About Bribie Island

Located 70 km north of Brisbane and 2 metres above sea-level, Bribie Island is an interesting combination of retirement centre, day-trippers' paradise, family-holiday retreat and haven for anglers, sunlovers and sporting people (there's an excellent golf course on the island). Separated from the mainland by Pumicestone Passage, the island is 34 km long and up to 8 km wide. It sits at the north-western edge of Moreton Bay and the population is around 15,000. Bribie is the only offshore island in Queensland to be joined to the mainland by bridge. Much of the island is national park, so it offers unspoiled bushland, plenty of sandy white beaches and ideal opportunities for bushwalks, picnics, boating, camping, fishing, swimming and birdwatching. It has 350 species of birds, as well as turtles, dugongs and dolphins. There is also a diversity of accommodation to choose from.

Bribie Island's main area of settlement is the essentially continuous strip of suburban development that extends north from Bongaree, at the island's south-western corner, through Bellara and Banksia Beach. All have safe beaches, on the calm waters of Pumicestone Passage (ideal for boating), backed by foreshore parkland with picnic, barbecue and play facilities and the occasional public toilet and telephone.

There is a jetty at Brennan Park (on Bongaree Beach) with two boat ramps a little further north along the beach, adjacent Welsby Parade. Bellara has a boat ramp off Marine Parade, and Banksia Beach has one off Solander Esplanade. There are also boat ramps on the proximate mainland - at Sandstone Point (opposite the bottom of the island), Toorbul (opposite White Patch), Donnybrook (opposite Poverty Creek) and another on Coochin Creek at Roys (roughly opposite Lighthouse Reach), with many others further north, in and around Caloundra.

COLETEK Amazing Customer Testimonials

We met with Luke Cole from COLETEK and very quickly realised that he was very knowledgeable in robotics and prototyping. What separates his company from the rest, is that he had a unique value proposition - COLETEK offers a tele-operated / robotic unit for rent and with the flexibility to be modified to build proof-of-concepts. That unit lowered both the cost and time for us to produce a video showing a very challenging concept. In general COLETEK's service was great value. We would recommend them - they will get it done.

We engaged COLETEK to conduct a series of research projects on robotics and we very pleased with their technical skill, creative thinking and hard work. If you need to prototype a complex technical idea, they are a great partner to work with.

I recently discovered COLETEK after I accidently managed to fry the PCB on my hard drive. The drive contained 13 years worth family photos and wasn't comfortable sending it off where it could be damaged more or lost in the post. After spending hours researching and emailing different data recovery companies, I decided on COLETEK. Luke was very helpful and let me know the estimated costs up front, and was able to quickly do the repairs necessary to get my drive running like new again. I was able to back up the whole drive and the bill ended up cheaper than the original quote. I can highly recommend them and have already sent a friend to get their drive repaired too.

I have been working closely with COLETEK for the past 6 years now, and I must say, it is a success story :-). I highly respect their team, they are a pleasure to work with and top skilled professionals. In addition to their top Technical service, their customer service is brilliant and it is a rare find. Their PCB repair rework skills are top notch and a rare find in this industry. I have been working in the IT industry for the past 20 years in various fields and seen it all so I can say with certainty that they are the best around and I am looking forward to keep working with them in the future.
