Overview of NOJA Power in newly published 34-page brochure describes leadership in Australian medium-voltage switchgear sector and increasingly strong performance in export markets.

Electrical switchgear engineers NOJA Power today announces the publication of its 2014 Corporate Profile. The publication is intended to provide customers, press and other interested parties with an insight into the company’s commitment to R&D, staff development, product quality and customer service, as well as its robust financial health and positioning for future growth.

NOJA Power specialises in the research and development, manufacture, marketing, sales and service of low and medium voltage switchgear products. Over 20,000 units from NOJA Power's OSM range of medium-voltage (15, 27 and 38 kV) ACRs (see “About the NOJA Power OSM range” below) have been installed by utilities in over 80 countries around the world.

The company’s 2014 Corporate Profile is divided into sections covering manufacturing, R&D, quality assurance, NOJA Power Brazil, employees, channel to market, ACRs, low-voltage switchgear and financial report

The publication reveals that up to 10 percent of the company’s turnover is invested in R&D every year with a focus on the environmental impact of the products. NOJA Power’s ACRs feature vacuum interrupts and solid dielectric insulators instead of the environmentally unfriendly oil or sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) gas used in older products. The ACRs are housed in stainless steel tanks and are the only solid dielectric units with controlled arc venting.

According to the profile, 16 percent of NOJA Power’s employees are university educated with a further 22 percent possessing trade certificates or diplomas. 40 percent of NOJA Power’s employees are aged under 35. The profile also reveals that sales revenue growth exceeded 30 percent and net profit after tax growth topped 35 percent in the 2012/2013 financial year.

“I’m proud of the achievements of the staff of NOJA Power and it’s nice to acknowledge those successes publically through our latest corporate profile,” says Neil O’Sullivan, NOJA Power’s Managing Director. “But just as importantly the document provides a comprehensive report for all interested parties on how the company is progressing in its vision to be the world leader in medium voltage pole mounted switchgear.

“Our commitment to continue to invest in R&D is a key part of realising this vision,” O’Sullivan continues, “and recently we launched a significant new three-year program that will yield leading-edge technology products which are expected to fuel significant growth in the business over the next decade.”
