Our goal is to ensure that our product and service is the benchmark by which the competition is measured.
Based in South Australia, REDARC has 40 years’ experience in the research, design, development and manufacture of a range of DC power supplies, DC to DC chargers, electric brake controllers and more.
REDARC Electronics was founded in August of 1979 by electronics engineer, Robin (Bob) William Mackie in South Australia. Bob started the business by designing and manufacturing vehicle ignition systems. In fact, the name REDARC is believed to have come from the spark developed in the first ignition system having a “red arc”.
In 1997, Anthony and Michele Kittel along with Michele’s Father, Denis Brion, purchased the business following the premature death of Bob Mackie.
Denis Brion then retired in 2002 and Anthony and Michele purchased 100% of the business.
