Alfex CNC Australia celebrated a milestone anniversary in Melbourne in November as it marked 40 years in business.

To mark the occasion, the company’s entire staff from across Australia was brought together at Alfex CNC’s headquarters in Broadmeadows, north Melbourne, for a company-wide meeting. It was the first time that the whole national team had gathered together in several years.

“Having everyone in the same room, created great excitement and pride in what we have achieved together as a team,” said Maryanne Buhagiar, Operations Manager.

The following evening, the real celebration began, as the Alfex team, partners and guests were treated to a luxurious event with a grand view of the Melbourne city skyline to mark the special occasion. Esteemed guests included Alfex CNC’s original founders Tony and Linda Boult; suppliers and partners; as well as representatives of AMTIL.

“We wanted to share this momentous occasion with everyone who has provided services and guidance to Alfex CNC over the years and helped us on our journey,” said George Buhagiar, Company Director.

Tony and Linda Boult established Alfex in 1978, and since then have watched the company grow from strength to strength. As Tony recounted stories from the ‘old days’, it was very nostalgic for long-standing employees and gave everyone a great sense of pride and a better understanding of the company’s humble beginnings and achievements.

“I am very proud to be here and see the growth of the company over the years,” said Tony over a toast.

Today, Alfex CNC supplies Australia with the largest range of lasers for cutting, marking and engraving. Its two divisions include Haas Factory Outlet Australia, representing the Haas Automation range of CNC machine tools, and Alfex Laser, representing world-class laser systems. The company’s success has come from its continual focus on providing premium solutions and an unparalleled customer support experience. None of this would be possible without its loyal employees, most of whom have been with the company for many years.

“I’d like to thank everyone for being here,” added George, over a charged glass. “But in particular would like to thank the Alfex team for their great work and loyalty over the years and we look forward to our continued growth and success into the future.”
