Medical device manufacturer Niagara Therapy has opened a custom-built manufacturing and warehousing facility in the Brisbane suburb of Parkinson.
Niagara Therapy has relocated its head office to the new premises where it will continue producing vibration therapy medical devices for use across Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.
The company has grown substantially in the past five years and to accommodate for this growth recently relocated its 120 employees to a larger 2,500 square metre manufacturing and head office facility in Parkinson, which was purpose-built over three years.
In addition, Niagara Therapy has piqued the interest of Olympians, Paralympians, and the Australian Institute of Sport, who use the patented vibration therapy devices to improve circulation and aid healing.
Niagara Therapy Director of Operations, Sean Crealey – son of Peter Crealey, who helped bring the company to Australia in 1969 – said the new building signalled a long term investment in local manufacturing.
“It makes sense for us to manufacture locally. We want to deliver high-quality, reliable Niagara Therapy products, and we know this quality is guaranteed by manufacturing in Australia,” Mr Crealey said.
The business will also extend the company’s philosophical arm – setting up treatment centres aligned with Special Schools, known as Fairyland Centres, for children with mental and physical disadvantages to receive vibration therapy treatment.
