APS Plastics is a Melbourne based company founded by John Petschel in 1986. John was inspired to commence an Australian owned and managed business that would:
Take advantage of the design freedoms that working with plastics allows when combined with appropriate technology and processes.
Provide high quality product engineering, analysis and testing services that would overcome the perception that quality precision engineering was only available from traditional suppliers such as Germany, Switzerland, Japan and the USA.
Provide a "total solution" support service for Australian and international inventions, inventors and manufacturers that would provide clear and tangible benefits for clients.
APS was commenced with the belief that there was a demand for a specific combination of services that would provide an Australian owned and based alternative for the design, development and commercialisation of products using advanced plastics technology.
Over the past 20 years, APS has built a reputation for achieving excellence in the provision of innovative, technology based solutions for clients.
