Established in 2014, Quartek was founded by a group of engineers passionate about the projects they work on and the people they work with. Today, that passion remains the driving force behind our success and the projects we’ve delivered with our clients, partners, and collaborators.

What sets Quartek apart from other engineering firms?

So, you might wonder – what sets us apart from other engineering firms? To answer your question, below are the key USPs that set us apart from other engineering firms and, in turn, bring immense value to successfully completing and delivering.

1. A people-centric Mission

To begin with, the foundation of Quartek is built upon our mission statement, which is:

‘To foster an inclusive and supportive company culture that provides the most rewarding and engaging environment for our team, which facilitates delivery of the highest quality service possible to our clients.’

2. Four core values

At the heart of our organisation’s foundation are four core principles by which we function:

  1. Trust,
  2. Quality,
  3. Integrity, and
  4. Value.

These are present in everything we do, but most importantly, they are central to the way we engage with our clients and our team.

3. Five focus sectors

Here at Quartek, we provide a range of engineering services to the aerospace, energy, land vehicle, maritime and rail sectors, with a strong emphasis on supporting defence and defence industry within Australia.

4. Tailored range of services

No matter your project requirements, we have a range of tailored engagement models to suit your requirements. Whether you need complete work packages carried out independently, application development, temporary staff on-site, or an on-call help-desk arrangement, Quartek can adapt to your needs to ensure successful delivery.

The service areas you can benefit from include:

  • Applied engineering and analysis.

5. Unrivalled experience

Our highly skilled professional engineers and consultants have been fortunate to work on some of the most technically engaging and challenging projects locally and abroad.

Over the years, we have had the opportunity to work on many defence and civilian projects of global significance, including:

  • F-35,
  • A350,
  • A400M,
  • A380,
  • Hawkei and
  • GM’s Zeta platform.

All of which enables us to bring unrivalled skills and experience to every project.

6. Australian Defence Industry credentials and certifications

We are a wholly Australian-owned and operated company. As a member of the DSS Panel, the Australian Industry Defence Network and partner to several Australian defence primes, Quartek is an active participant within and champion of the Australian defence industry.

We are also members of the Defence Industry Security Program and have worked extensively within ITAR-controlled environments.

What’s more, Quartek is fully insured and is a certified ISO9001:2015 organisation – an achievement we’re very proud of and one that permeates right throughout our company culture.

7. Global reach

While we are Australia-based, our team is experienced in partnering with global industry leaders, manufacturers, suppliers, small businesses, R&D, and defence so you can get the best support and outcomes for your projects.

8. Leading industry affiliations

As an active participant within the Australian defence industry community, Quartek is a member of the Australian Industry Defence Network, the Victorian Defence Alliance, and the Industry Capability Network. We actively promote Australian industry content, having built a strong network of local suppliers and partners whom we regularly collaborate with. We also have links to academia, encouraging and fostering talent from institutions such as RMIT, Swinburne and Deakin Universities.

We’re here to work with you.
