Connect Source – trailblazing electrical & technology solutions since 1992

From making things – to making things happen

Providing game-changing solutions to overcome your challenges has long been a priority for Connect Source. Since our early days as an electrical manufacturing and assembly business, we’ve been evolving and diversifying to meet our customers’ changing needs.

1992
The Connect
Source Story

Humble beginnings in Bellevue, WA

Spencer Stacey opened Connect Source. His Perth-based family business started with a hands-on team of five serving the local area.

1992
A growing
reputation

More space to support more customers

As our reputation for quality and service grew, so did our customer base. We moved to larger premises in Midvale to meet demand for our electrical boards, wiring harnesses and other items.

2006
Exploring new
services

A new addition to the family business

Spencer welcomed his son-in-law, Murray Johnson, to the Connect Source team to focus on strengthening customer relationships. As Murray learnt more about the business, he explored new services to better serve our customers.

2009
Persevering
through
challenging times

Staying power through challenging times

Having tripled in size, we were impacted by the GFC and subsequent mining industry crash that led to a state-wide downturn. We persevered and adopted strategies to effectively sustain the business. With a smaller team, we focused on supporting our key customers.

2010
The Start of a
new chapter

Changing of the guard

When Spencer retired, Murray bought Connect Source and stepped up to run the business. He went on to establish our first OEM relationships and partnerships, many of which have lasted decades. He developed our engineering capabilities and created a more diverse range of services.

2011
Expanding
services

Robust relationships underpin recovery

As businesses bounced back, our enduring customer relationships boosted our growth. We increased our team to 15 people and moved to our current location in Midvale.

2016
A new addition
to the team

New CEO extends capabilities

After 15+ years running telematics, telecommunications and tech companies, Mike Wishart joined Connect Source as CEO. Mike brought a wealth of technological knowledge plus sales and customer relationship experience into the business.

2017
New
opportunities

New partnerships – new opportunities

Connect Source acquired the distribution rights for a major safety-focused tech product, Guardian by Seeing Machines. Mike and Murray further expanded our services to establish the sales and support arms of the business.

2019

East coast expansion to enhance customer support

Having sold over 3,000 Guardian devices, we recognised a need to support our growing number of customers, partners and distribution agents on Australia’s east coast. We grew our team and opened a satellite office in Melbourne.

Connect Source leads the way with smart tech, AI and data aggregation

With the aim of helping our customers achieve new outcomes from existing data, we launched our custom-built data aggregation and insights solution, Momentum.

We also created our unique Development Journey framework as a pathway for businesses to bring new technologies to market.

‘From the outset, the Connect Source team was great to deal with. After going over our scope with our engineering team, they listened to our requirements and took them on board. Then they went away and got to work on a solution.’
