Diver Consolidated Industries was initially founded by the Diver family in the early 1930s with a foundation in metal stamping. Today, the company has diversified from its roots into complex assemblies, fabrications, heat and acoustic shielding and woodworking equipment.
A broad range of products and services form the basis of the company?s operations including complicated assemblies such as instrument panel cross car beams, door, deck-lid and lift-gate hinges, heat and acoustic shields, structural body members and handbrake assemblies amongst many others.
Diver Consolidated Industries places a strong emphasis in training and involvement in the community and takes pride in being a local employer. The company currently employs nearly 120 people across its Metal Stamping Division in Reservoir and the Thermal and Acoustic Products Division in Thomastown.
These divisions supply domestic and export markets across industries as diverse as automotive, transportation, defence, marine and bio-medical. To maintain cost and quality, a vast majority of key processes are undertaken in-house, while vertically integrated manufacturing capabilities enable the company to provide customers with a consolidated purchasing opportunity.
This ability and focus saw the company recognised by Ford Australia in 2007 with a Supplier Excellence Award and 2008 with Ford?s Tony Simpson Relationship award. Diver Consolidated Industries also went on to become a finalist in the 2008 Innovation Excellence Awards as recognised and awarded by Advanced Manufacturing Australia.
