150 Years

A letter from Jeff Connolly, Chairman and CEO, Siemens Australia and Pacific

This year represents 150 years of Siemens in Australia. In many ways, our history is a reminder of just how deeply Siemens technologies are a part of the fabric of Australia. We are proud to have played a role in transforming the everyday for millions of people in this country. Our relevance in Australia has always been and will continue to be via the application of the latest technologies to help address current challenges facing the nation.


On August 22nd in 1872, the first telegraph message was transmitted over a 2,700 km Overland Telegraph Line between Darwin and Adelaide. This great engineering achievement of 19th century Australia, connecting Australia to the world, also saw Siemens launch operations in Australia. Through the 150 years since, our technology and our people have been bringing the best from around the world to Australia and helping showcase our region’s best to the world.  


For 150 years Siemens has been supporting the building blocks of the nation. And through technology with purpose and passionate people  we are motivated to continue to be an integral part of Australia’s future for the next 150 years.
