Who is COLETEK?
Entrepreneurs, inventors & companies come to us to turn
ideas into reality...
We work on a broad range of hardware and software projects, such as:
prototyping, product development, robotics, electronics, computer
security, surveillance, graphics and IT.
We also review complex problems, with the aim to find
We are able to do all this due to our background in
Our team is comprised of a small group of very talented unique
individuals. Each have been passionately learning and developing their
technical arts since childhood. Together we bring a wealth of
experience and cross-pollination of skills. This allows us to provide
you with the most ideal solution for your needs. Here is a list of our
highly skilled individuals:
- 2x Graphics Designers, 3D Animators and Conceptual Design
Artists - Just think of the movie Avatar and just about any TV
ad, and you can get an understanding of their artistic skills.
- 2x 3D Computer Modeling and 3D Prototyping (i.e. CAD and 3D
printing) Experts - Whether you want us to model a car from a
set of photos, or prototype a enclosure for an electronic product,
we have got the skills and equipment.
- 2x Web Development Programmers - To ensure your promotional website or embedded product website interface, looks very modern and dynamic for desktop, tablet, mobile, and can interface with database needs.
- 2x Security Camera Installers - Whether you want a
typical security camera installation or highly advanced security
camera system (e.g. gate entry via license plate recognition), our
engineers and electricians have you covered.
- 2x Penetration Testors (aka Ethical Hacking) - You will
not have to worry about being hacked again with these guys, they are
well skilled and provide ourstanding reports from their penetration
- 2x Robotic (Mechanical/Electronic/Computer/Software) Engineers -
No problem is too hard for these guys, they have a deep grasp of
technology at all levels of mechanical/electronic hardware and
- 2x PhD Scientists - Helping us think outside the box, due
to a deep grasp of new areas technology and potential technology.
It is also important to understand that having a skilled team like
us, will not mean your project is going to cost more then a company
that does not have robotics and PhD scientists. In fact, because we
have these skills on the team, your project can be completed cheaper
and quicker then companies without such skills (e.g. companies that
specialise in just mechanics, or just electronics, or just security,
or just software, or just concept artistic design). Furthermore,
having our team on your project, means the project can be perfected,
so you save (or profit) money in the end. For example, the unit cost
for the production of each product is as cheap as possible, therefore
allowing you to make more profit on the resale price. Or our security
camera installation will ensure you have a state of the art solution,
which will save you money on potiential upgrades.

ETECK (ABN 16 056 740 186)
Founded in 2001 by Luke Cole
[B.Eng. & B.Tech(IT)] and Francisco S Silva, was designed as
a automated online electronics shop. To supply customers with
electronic equipment such as computer goods, electronic circuits
and robotic devices, at anytime, anywhere. Using automation and
e-commence to reduce the business overheads and therefore
providing competitive prices.
COLETEK (ABN 98 488 911 319)
After the unfortunate death of Francisco S Silva in 2003
(R.I.P. SILVA), ETECK was reborn in 2004 as COLETEK, to refocus the
business on brainstorming future shopping methods. This resulted in
COLETEK releasing a website in 2006 called LowZo.com, which
provides a sole website for any business and individual to sell/modify
their products and services free of charge, while allowing the
consumers to have a price comparision website. This type of website
maintains convenience and consistency in customer service. The purpose
of LowZo was to allow staff of COLETEK to focus on their true
abilities: security, automation and robotics.
After running COLETEK for 10 years, the business was reborn in
2014 as a company, to refocus the business on providing great services
for great people doing great things. This allows us to also design and
development the future world to further great things!
