Australian Made & Owned

Carbonix has been proudly Australian owned and operated since its inception in 2011.  Our original workshop could not have been more Aussie, located on the picturesque and iconic World Heritage listed Cockatoo island in Sydney’s world-renowned harbor. The island’s rich history of shipbuilding and technological innovation embodies the Aussie spirit of making things work from first principles in spite of distance and other constraints.

As we moved forward from these early days, Carbonix evolved, but our products and company culture remained as Aussie as can be. Carbonix UAVs are made from scratch in our Sydney workshop from Australian sourced materials and assembled by locals – a mix of Aussies hailing from all around the world! 

Additionally, Carbonix prides itself on adhering to strict quality standards that it also requires from all suppliers and partners. Leading the way while eclectically learning, collaborating, innovating, in service of the mission.

Local support from a local team

  • Carbonix operations are based in Sydney, Australia. As such, all customers have access to our domestic support services. If any queries or issues arise, all Carbonix customers can speak to an Australian based expert in Australia, to discuss an Australian solution. Outside Australia? Fear not. We have you covered. Our Maintenance partners – Robotic Skies, are on hand to provide aircraft support in 35 countries around the globe.
  • Governed by a mature and stable legal frameworkCarbonix flight operations and quality assurance systems have been developed under the framework of the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority. This leading ICAO-affiliated regulator takes a pragmatic and safety-conscious approach, in line with our values. Their signoff gives confidence to our customers that we take safety and quality very seriously. Being a pioneer of long-range power-lift drones, we've been an integral part of the evolution of these systems and can speak authoritatively on how to develop the best mission solution for our customers.
  • The Australian legal framework also safeguards consumers through bodies such as the ACCC, as well as ensuring employees and other stakeholders are treated fairly.
  • Australian Government policies also recognise the importance of sovereign capability. Carbonix is very mindful of being able to continue supply in the face of disruptions to international supply chains. We have diversified networks of suppliers, taking full advantage of the developing robotics and drone ecosystem in country, so we can continue to grow our fleet and service customers even if borders close or particular countries become off-limits.
  • Thinking of buying a drone made somewhere else?When you buy Australian Made, you buy with confidence knowing that your potentially sensitive data is secure from third parties or Governments. Drones made in some other countries around the world do not come with this extra level of security and privacy. In Australia, strict laws and an independent legal system make it illegal for the government to force an Australian company to do anything arbitrary, especially hand over information. With this in mind, you can be sure that the data you capture with your Carbonix drone is safe, secure and remains so.
