In 2012 the businesses known as Siomar Battery Engineering and Siomar Battery Industries (Siomar) were acquired by Master Instruments Pty Limited (MI).

In the year that Master Instruments Pty Ltd celebrated its 70th anniversary and Siomar Battery Engineering its 30th, together these two entities bring to the market over 100 years of service excellence in batteries, battery packs, charging, DC power solutions and test, measurement & control equipment.

Siomar Managing Director Mark Beamish knew MI were the natural acquirers of this business and it was important to the Siomar Board of Directors that something they have nurtured through thick and thin over 30 years will continue with another family owned business that knows and appreciates its value.

The mutual respect for decades in a competitive market now culminates into unlimited opportunities to the businesses post integration. Mark Beamish is now MI's WA State Manager and heads up the company's industrial & OEM battery departments. He and his team of battery engineering experts are keen to show the market what they can now accomplish in both the local and export markets. These markets have been crying out for reliable and quality battery application knowledge and local input in the growing DC power solution market.
