Driven by the belief that good design can add value and make a difference in the world, Andrew Rogers Industrial Design has been facilitating entrepreneurs to develop the best possible solutions for over 30 years. Offering design and manufacturing solutions from concept through to point of sale, we have brought more than 300 successful products to market. This work has been across a range of sectors including health, industry and education.
Industrial design exists in the realm between art, science and engineering. At Andrew Rogers Industrial Design we welcome the problems of our clients and embrace the process of finding a solution for them. Sometimes, along the way we redefine what the problem is, but we always come up with a design-based solution that best meets their needs.Our aim is to develop a solution that can effectively and practically bring a new product to market. We believe that the design process should encompass every aspect of what is needed to do this, so we offer services from the conceptualisation stage, through to prototype development, tooling and manufacturing support, point-of-sale offerings and ongoing quality control.
With over 30 years’ experience across the entire industrial design process, we offer a comprehensive service which allows our clients to disrupt the status quo in whatever sphere they are working in. Our ability to think differently about a problem, with the knowledge acquired over a lifetime of diverse design projects, allows us to offer suggestions which provide our clients with a distinct competitive advantage.
Our business methodology includes onsite prototyping and manufacturing advice and support. We understand the tooling required to manufacture products efficiently and therefore as part of our service we produce engineered and tested designs that can be transferred between worldwide manufacturing facilities. This provides flexibility and agility and has been specifically beneficial for the Edison programmable robot, Sumi Forklift, and the G Dot soil moisture meter.
The methodology and philosophy behind Andrew Rogers Industrial Design has seen the development and production of more than 300 products successfully brought to market. Sales of the Edison Robot and Edison EdCreate expansion kits alone have resulted in export revenue of around $2.2 million.
As a result of our successes across the board, we have been able to open a manufacturing and assembly facility in China. Here, products that have been strategically designed by us are being cost-effectively produced to the highest standard. Our strategy to keep manufacturing costs low has meant we have been able to create more high value jobs in Australia, effectively doubling our full-time skilled workforce. We are also able to provide a return on investment for our stakeholders which encourages ongoing product development and innovation.

The driving force behind the business, Andrew Rogers encourages strategic thinking and welcomes ideas and feedback of all business employees. His personal approach to strategic design is a hands-on one which results in a better product and allows him to refine the project through in-house model making and prototype development. Leading by example, Andrew hopes that his actions and successes demonstrate to his employees and others in the industry the power which industrial design has to reframe problems and improve everyday tasks - advancing the world a little bit with each new innovative product.
