Lai Switchboards Australia belongs to a group of companies leaded by Lai Industries Pty Ltd. The latter was established in South Australia in 1969, starting off in a small warehouse in Brompton, South Australia.

The current managing director formed part of the partnership of owners that took over Lai Industries in 1996, with a group of 18 staff at the Athol Park premises. Now as a family owned business, Lai Industries moved in 2005 to a modern facility in Hendon, South Australia.

In 2014 Lai Industries successfully acquired and merged with PSG Manufacturing while increasing its workforce to over 200 employees in three state of the art manufacturing facilities within Australia: South Australia, Queensland and Victoria.

Lai Industries Pty Ltd has enjoyed substantial growth and is recognized as a highly competitive quality manufacturer of switchboards and associated products in the electrical industry throughout Australia and beyond.


We offer a diverse electrical service for our clients which include all levels of government and many of Australia's largest corporations.


We are also leaders in ecologically sustainable development, engineering cleaner projects and introducing innovations.
