MPA Engineering was established in Brisbane in 1990 to provide manufacturers and local Councils with automation solutions using state of the art technology, coupled with competitive pricing. These two core strategic principles have seen MPA grow into a multi-disciplined engineering, project delivery and electrical contracting company, undertaking projects across Australia and internationally.

The company is now one of Australia's leading electrical system integrators specialising in sophisticated machine and plant automation solutions. With its head office in Ipswich, Queensland, MPA also services clients through its regional offices in Townsville, Caboolture and Melbourne as well as via its international facility in Thailand. As a completely owned subsidiary of Aquatec Maxcon, MPA also has satellite offices in Oxley, Sydney and Chinchilla.

Food and Beverage products have become more complex and expensive to produce while globalisation and regulatory requirements continue to limit margins. To remain competitive, companies must find innovative ways to produce their products faster, at lower cost, and with minimal waste. MPA has assisted these businesses in gaining a competitive advantage through better control of the factory floor and better integration of manufacturing information. MPA's engineering specialists provide a range of products and services such as consulting, HSE compliance, design and installation of production processes and electrical maintenance support to food and beverage companies such as: Pauls, Arnotts Biscuits, Bundaberg Sugar, Newland Food Company, Castlemaine Perkins, XXXX Brewery, Australian Country Choice, South Pacific Brewery, Primo Smallgoods, Joe White Maltings Ltd and Smiths Snackfoods.

In the Pharmaceutical Industry, a product's time to market has to be extremely short, the production highly efficient, and the product quality impeccable. Development and production of pharmaceutical products requires the consistent planning and documentation of all processes over the entire plant lifecycle. There is high pressure to reduce costs because patent protection terms are short, and the cost for product development is increasing. With over 20 years of experience in this industry, MPA understands the time and cost demands of pharmaceutical and biotechnology projects. They provide a range of electrical engineering services and products to such companies as Sanofi Avensis, Healthworld Limited, Alphapharm, Biomerieux and Genalysis Laboratory Services.
