About Us > History

Lai Industries Pty Ltd were established in South Australia in 1969, starting off in a small warehouse in Brompton, South Australia. Current Director Gio Iarriccio formed a partnership of owners that took over the business in 1996, with a team of 18 staff at the Athol Park premises.

Lai Industries Pty Ltd enjoyed substantial growth over the following years and the premises at Athol Park were quickly outgrown. In 2005 Lai industries moved premises to 17 Circuit Drive Hendon, South Australia where they are located to this day.

Over the next 10 years, through hard work, dedication, quality products and uncompromising service, Lai Industries expanded further into the Australian market setting up offices and manufacturing facilities in SA, VIC, QLD and NSW.

Now called Lai Switchboards Australia and led by Managing Director Frank Iarriccio,  Lai is recognized as a highly competitive, quality manufacturer of switchboards and associated products in the electrical industry throughout Australia and beyond.

Today, Lai Switchboards Australia employ a family of over 200 personnel, and we continue to pride ourselves on our creativity, our craftsmanship, and our ability to produce our products on brief and on time.
