As the company marked its second birthday last week, in the midst of the global COVID-19 crisis, it can reflect on having established a landmark production facility in South Australia, launched multiple variants of the BT62 globally, and regained a presence in motorsport. Brabham Automotive is currently Australia’s only OEM and while the world pauses to deal with the pandemic, its plans for the future are bright.
Brabham Automotive’s recently completed production facility is an all-new workspace encompassing the engineering, design, manufacture and assembly of both parts and vehicles. It occupies 2,500m2 of a much larger facility housing Precision Buses, a division of Fusion Capital’s mobility hub, and part of the largest Australian owned bus-manufacturing group in Australia.
The Brabham facility has numerous bays for different phases of vehicle assembly from chassis up, a finishing bay for final inspection, a dedicated carbon composite workshop, engineering offices with 3D printing facilities, meeting rooms and a customer engagement area, putting customer engagement at the forefront of the Brabham experience.
This space also houses Fusion Composites, a lightweight composite division of Fusion Capital that supplies Brabham Automotive with carbonfibre components. Fusion Composites also services the growing demand for lightweight materials in other industries such as aerospace, mass-transit, goods manufacturing and more.
