COLETEK Amazing Customer Testimonials
We met with Luke Cole from COLETEK and
very quickly realised that he was very knowledgeable in
robotics and prototyping. What separates his company
from the rest, is that he had a unique value proposition
- COLETEK offers a tele-operated / robotic unit for rent
and with the flexibility to be modified to build
proof-of-concepts. That unit lowered both the cost and
time for us to produce a video showing a very
challenging concept. In general COLETEK's
service was great value. We would recommend
them - they will get it done.
Skykraft is a Canberra based company designing and developing spacecraft for the delivery of global space-based services. Luke and the team have been very responsive with quotes and delivery of machined parts for our company. Looking forward to working with COLETEK on our space programmes.
We engaged COLETEK to conduct a series of research
projects on robotics and we very pleased with their
technical skill, creative thinking and hard work. If you
need to prototype a complex technical idea, they are a
great partner to work with.
COLETEK have been absolutely fantastic in their support and manufacture of various components for us. Our designs are always bespoke, intricate and low volume and it’s great to have an Australian company like COLETEK as a trusted and quality manufacturer for our spacecraft mechanical components and assemblies – which have been flight proven through successful mission operations. Keep up the great work!
Intuitive, innovative & efficient are three words that
would appropriately describe the COLETEK service. Luke
and the team at COLETEK have taken our concepts to the
From an idea in my head to making sales nationwide and now
worldwide. COLETEK were there every step of the way. The
product was my first development so I had no idea
really. With COLETEK offering privacy agreements and
steering me in the right direction, it gave me confidence
instantly. One thing that may seem irrelevant they
questioned me about what it was I was trying to achieve
and if in fact if it's even viable? That for me showed
COLETEK wasn't in it just for my money. After some
meetings and a couple of CAD drawings we had our first
working prototype. COLETEK's knowledge and experience
definitely made this whole process a lot easier. From CAD
drawings, prototypes, liaising with suppliers in Australia
and overseas - COLETEK done the lot. I'd highly recommend
Delivered excellence on time, great work and great team, thanks!
Great delivery, and great relationship orientated services.
We had the opportunity to work with Coletek on the
re-work of some complex SMD PCB assemblies during 2019.
The work was carried out to a very high standard and we
were extremely pleased with the outcome. We would not
hesitate to recommend COLETEK for any type of complex technology
work requiring high accuracy and professionalism.
As the proprietor a DIY environmentally pest control
products business I have been more then impressed with
COLETEK's design capability and professionalism in assisting to
realise an idea into reality.
From concept, CAD drawings, 3D modelling, alterations right
through to the finished product.
I am extremely happy with our new termite control product.
I have no hesitation in recommending COLETEK's services.
I consulted COLETEK for some work, commencing in 2014,
and haven’t looked back. The project was very important to
me, and COLETEK not only saw that but exuded sincere enthusiasm
about the project; they are attentive, and thorough in
their research and development service. They are a wealth of
information and advice, for many aspects of the entire
engineering and commercialization space, and this has been
invaluable to me. I look forward to continuing work with them
long into the future!
In the development of our new product Smart Syphon we
had a tight deadline to launch the commercial version of
our product and experienced some issues with our
drawings. Luke and his team dealt with the issues,
worked through the week-end and delivered a quality
outcome on time.
Our company has been working with COLETEK and Luke Cole for
several years. Luke is very intelligent in many areas and has
provided us with excellent designs and service. With the addition
of a marketing section to provide brochures, packaging,
etc. COLETEK is a one-stop shop. Based on our experience, we would
highly recommend Luke and his company.
COLETEK have provided one to one communication
throughout the development process and gone above and beyond in
bringing our ideas closer to becoming a reality! Luke's
expertise and knowledge with computer software and electronics
is Jedi like, but what I liked most about working with him was
his willingness and ability to think outside of the box.
Salita engaged Luke Cole to troubleshoot issues we were
having with a drive motor system with a dynamic variance
of torque and speed. After approaching no less than a
dozen Australian supplier and engineering firms to
provide a solution, and after 12 months of product
design and testing, they could not verify why their
recommended motors where failing and reversing
suddenly. Luke undertook testing and analysis and
quickly supplied information on the failures. Not only
did Luke uncover a rare, uncommon failure but also
provided a solution. The COLETEK team are our go to for
the correct solution the first time, for all our
We had an idea that needed very complex design and
prototype requirements. After much frustration dealing
with other prototyping companies both in Australia and
overseas we came across Coletek and have not looked
back. Luke has been extremely helpful to date and we are
now on the road to developing the product we had
envisioned. Luke has been more than capable of taking
multiple and constantly changing design facets in his
stride and has ultimately given us a clear path to a
Luke has a very broad depth of knowledge across many
engineering disciplines and has a large project base to
draw experience from. I engaged COLETEK for assistance
in some early electro-mechanical design for a hoisting
system. They've been a great resource for helping
Great prototype product made to our specs with minimal
fuss. Delivered on time and within budget. Thanks team.
I would thoroughly recommend COLETEK they provided me
with excellent feedback and engineering knowledge with
regards to our idea. They also have continued to help us
with what direction we should take and introduced us to
other professionals that have also guided us. I suggest
anyone who has been thinking of something they would
like to pursue should contact them to get the most
realistic approach of making it successful.
I had a technical design and prototype job I needed done and had
contacted two companies in Brisbane before I discovered
COLETEK. From my first conversation with Luke, I knew that
he was the best person for the job and he delivered under
budget and within the required timeframe. The device he
manufactured for my company will save us thousands of
dollars and it is highly likely that we will on-sell the
device to similar organisations. I recommend COLETEK for any
design and prototype work you can imagine for your business.
We worked with Luke from COLETEK to develop a prototype for
a new venture. Luke was able to give us practical advice on
how to execute the project inline with our budget that was
super useful. What has been endearing, is that even after
the build was complete, Luke continues to touch base with us
offering help to keep the momentum of the project going forward.
Thank you for the fast and efficient service you have
provided us over the years for 3D printing prototypes of
specialised containers we are developing to
The 3D printing has been beneficial in perfecting and
obtaining the perfect containers to suit the purpose and
After approaching COLETEK with a few sketches of a plumbing tool I
had in mind Luke and I immediately bounced a few ideas
around. Leaving things with Luke he quickly produced some 3D
images and ideas we subsequently used. Before long COLETEK
produced an operational 3D printed prototype of the tool. I was
then able to use this prototype to seek funding for further
research and development.
We have used COLETEK on a couple of occasions and found
their service to be professional and on time. We specialise
in engineering and design of height safety equipment and
since a lot of parts are made by casting from stainless
steel we require a quick model before we proceed with the
COLETEK has been able to provide this quickly saving us
valuable time and giving us peace of mind knowing our parts
will look right when casted from stainless steel.
I'm in the early stages of my prototype design. I have
worked with Luke for a couple of years now and in that
time I have found Luke to be very reliable, responsible
with my design, honest and trustworthy. What stood out
the most was Luke's pride and commitment that he
undertakes to ensure a positive outcome. I consider it a
privilege to call Luke an associate and have no
hesitation in encouraging others to do the same.
Multistore Industries was in the process of developing
new product for a client and needed a 3D handle printed
before we went into the expense of mass production. I
meet with Luke several times and he assisted with the
drawings and then printed the handle. The handle was
then presented to our client within 1 week and approved
by the client.
Thank you to Luke and his team for making this process
so easy and for a client who couldn’t visualise the
finished product Coletek was the perfect solution.
Our company will not hesitate to use COLETEK for further projects.
Working with COLETEK has been a pleasure. All parts we
received are good quality and made exactly to our
drawings, turnaround times were quick and never later
than stated. Overall a great supplier and would
recommend to any others interested in 3D Printing. Thank you!
Our first foray into the world of 3D printing brought
us to COLETEK. We consider ourselves fortunate
to have made this connection. COLETEK were accessible
and easy to communicate with. They provided clear
feedback and advice regarding the printing process, 3D
file formats, resolution options and the likely time
and costs involved. They provided prompt, invaluable
service at a critical stage of product development,
demonstrating a real understanding of our particular
needs. The costs of services were totally appropriate
and represented real added value to our final
product. Thank you Luke and the team, we look forward
to further opportunities to engage COLETEK.
I engaged COLETEK several years ago to produce
designs and working prototypes of 2 products I am
currently developing as I was having difficulty obtaining
what I required from overseas design companies. I have
always found Luke easy to work with and having face to
face meetings made explaining my concepts so much easier
than endless emails. Design changes and modifications are
always produced in a timely fashion and available for
COLETEK has assisted on a variety of last-minute 3d
printing overflow tasks for various projects.
I've always found them to be very responsive to my needs
and turned around urgent work in shortest possible time frame.
I wouldn't hesitate to use or recommend COLETEK for any
future design and/or 3d printing requirements.
I used COLETEK for the design and prototyping of a new medical airway device I invented.
They were enthusiastic, responsive to my input and I was
very satisfied with the product they gave me.
I can strongly recommend their services.
I was grateful to find Luke Cole at COLETEK in the early
days of an invention idea. He was very patient and generous
with information to guide me along the way. And even though I
did not preceed with my project, I would still recommend his
services. Thank you.
Luke and the team do a amazing job. Extremly happy from start to finish
We used COLETEK on a small project involving mechanical
and electronic design aspects as well as software
development. COLETEK understood our requirements at the outset and
worked to accommodate our needs. The whole process was
professionally conducted and we highly recommend COLETEK
I would like to thankyou for your time and development knowledge for
assisting me in designing a new helmet for the Fire Fighting
Sector. I apologise that I came to you with not much information
to work with but I must admit I was very impressed with what
design you came up with from your CAD drawings to achieve the
final outcome. That new design is in the hands of our
manufacturer over in Europe and we are hopeful that we will be
able to release a new futuristic finished product for the next
fire season. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to
other customers who were looking to design new products.
COLETEK proved to be the perfect
choice to help us kick our project off. Their analysis of the
problem we presented with them with, and their suggestions for
the most efficient and effective way to achieve a solution
prevented us wasting time and money heading down the wrong
path. I'd recommend COLETEK without any reservations.
Thank you for your recent help with my enquiry.
I have been able to proceed with my project which was proving very difficult before I was fortunate enough to make your acquaintance.
The help you have given me and the contacts I have made with your support has been invaluable.
Thank you so much and I look forward to a long and fruitful association.
We recently engaged the services of COLETEK to perform
some penetration testing on our systems. We found Luke
flexible and accommodating with our specific needs. Luke
provide what we needed to show our clients our security
measures with our systems. I would have no hesitation in
I can say that I've only dealt once with Luke Cole at
COLETEK and I found him to be very professional and helpful with
his assessment of my device.
His expertise and suggestions with regards to my invention
was great, despite my pedestrian description of it and
what I was hoping it could achieve.
In the end his advice was paramount in my final decision
as to whether I would move forward with the development of
I recently discovered COLETEK after I accidently managed to fry
the PCB on my hard drive. The drive contained 13 years worth
family photos and wasn't comfortable sending it off where it
could be damaged more or lost in the post. After spending hours
researching and emailing different data recovery companies, I
decided on COLETEK. Luke was very helpful and let me know the
estimated costs up front, and was able to quickly do the repairs
necessary to get my drive running like new again. I was able to
back up the whole drive and the bill ended up cheaper than the
original quote. I can highly recommend them and have already sent
a friend to get their drive repaired too.
I have been working closely with
COLETEK for the past 6 years now, and I must say, it is a success
I highly respect their team, they are a pleasure to work with and
top skilled professionals. In addition to their
top Technical service, their customer service is brilliant and it
is a rare find. Their PCB repair rework skills
are top notch and a rare find in this industry.
I have been working in the IT industry for the past 20 years in
various fields and seen it all so I can say with certainty that
they are the best around and I am looking forward to keep working
with them in the future.
Luke from COLETEK provided server setup and consultation for
our media production Business. They were prompt,
professional, and helpful, and gave us some good ideas and
options when it came to a custom and cost effective
solution. They have been prompt and responsive since initial
setup, offering advice as needed and supporting additional
requests. Highly recommended!
I was very impressed with the prompt service I received from
COLETEK IT. I submitted a request for assistance on Thursday when
my Windows PC failed to boot. I dropped the computer off
Friday. Saturday - I was notified that analysis was complete and
that a reinstall of Windows was required. Sunday - I was notified
that Windows had been reinstalled and all my data had been copied
back. Monday - I picked up my recovered machine from COLETEK. Four
days from initial contact to having my system back would be great
service in anyone's book. I have no hesitation in recommending
We've worked with Luke and the team on and off for the past two years. We've found them very accessible and extremely thorough in their dealings. Their documentation is second to none and we’d have no hesitation recommending them on this basis alone.
We experienced some issues with our Linux
server. I contacted Luke and explained my concerns, Luke come
to our office (after hours) to run some tests and when
advised me that some programming was required and that the
hard drives were overdue for replacements.
Luke suggested I drop the server of at his office on
Friday late afternoon so he could do the fix on the
weekend and he would come to our office on Sunday
afternoon to install the updated server.
I gladly accpeted such a great offer.
Everything went exactly to plan even though we had to deal
with really bad storms and some power outages on that
weekend. Job well done.
I had a hard drive malfunction caused by a power
surge. Attempts by local IT technicians were unable to
recover the data, and ended up
making the situation worse. I was advised to give up on
getting any data back. After searching around
online for an advanced data recovery service I selected
COLETEK because of their prompt and professional
response to my request for a quote. They also had the
cheapest quote I obtained. I posted the drive off to
COLETEK, and the team were able to extract
much of the data from the drive quite quickly, and they
kept me informed at every stage of the process. I have recommended the services of COLETEK to
several acquaintances with data recovery needs, and will
continue to do so.
I came to coletek when my portable hard drive failed, I
had data I needed for work and university and they
managed to quickly recover all of it and even replaced
the drive within the enclosure for me, all within a
relatively quick timeframe and for a reasonable price. I
definitely recommend them for data recovery!
Massive thanks to Luke and the guys at COLETEK. My Hard
Drive was severely damaged (level 4/6) and they managed to
recover 100% of the data (including a 400GB single encrypted
file I really needed), the price was more then fair and it
only took a couple days. I highly recommend COLETEK for
their quality, value, speed and friendliness.
In July 2012, my hard drive died, and with it all my data,
treasured photos etc. COLETEK was able to recover the data
of my old hard drive for me - it had damaged platters so an
extensive data recovery process was required. The service
was great and fast, Luke came by within 24 hours to do a
quick analysis and was then able to proceed with the
recovery within days. We were so happy to get all our data
My Back up hard drive froze so I shopped it around to all
the Geeks to see if they could indeed open it. without
A friend put me onto COLETEK and I had my vital info back
within ten days. Money well spent.
I highly recommend to anyone with a need for data recovery to
contact COLETEK - they are impressive from start to finish. I was
impressed with the turnaround of each stage of the job, as well as
with the cost to complete it. These guys are excellent to deal
with, great communicators and clearly know their stuff... and, as
I understand, HDD data recovery is only one component of the work
that COLETEK does. Well done guys, keep up the great work!
My hard drive died with 18 months of work plus photos of
my daughters 1st 18 months of life. I contemplated
building a time machine to go back and document all
those memories again - though I found it logistically
and financially much easier to go with COLETEK. My
recommendation is forget trying to build a time machine
- call COLETEK.
An IT consultant confirmed that
our hard drive had died and that he was not able to extract
information from it as it was completely fried!
The IT consultant recommended COLETEK to me, saying data recovery
wouldn’t be cheap but it was our only option other than to attempt
to reconstruct months of MYOB (and other) data.
Luke was easy to deal with and managed to recover virtually all of
the information on the hard disc within a few days. Fantastic
work!! Luke, you saved us miles of heartache!!
I had an external hard drive containing valuable data
that quit working. I thought everything was lost. I
used the services of COLETEK to restore the contents of
my drive and i was able to retrieve everything. I would
not hesitate to use COLETEK for hard drive recovery.
Excellent service quick response and great results and reliability.
I was exceptionally pleased with the service that I
received from COLETEK.
I had been advised by a number of different computer
"experts" that my hard drive was fried and that nothing
I wasn’t too hopeful but Luke was able to diagnose the
problem and recovered 99% of all our files.
We could not be happier with the outcome.
I would not hesitate to recommend COLETEK for all your
Highly recommended for COLETEK's service! Reasonable price and express service!
We have two back up external hard drives at home and for some reason both of them were corrupted (later found out it’s due to some sort of electrical surge??). Both drives contained over 10 years of valuable technical works, numerous photos from our pre-kids travel days, as well as photos and videos of our first born! We tried another company but only recovered around 55% of the data and it costed a FORTUNE! Contacted COLETEK, explained the problems and received my recovered data within 14 days of initial contact (it wasn’t an urgent case). I was over the moon when I was able to locate a technical piece of work that I’ve done 15 years ago, and of course videos and photos of our first born.
Luke from COLETEK has assisted us on a number of occasions
and has always been helpful, courteous and understanding of
our needs. There was an instance when timing was of the
essence and Luke was able to prioritise our job to ensure we
weren't affecting our customers in a negative way. He is
I have outsourced many projects through COLETEK over the years for
a variety of applications.
Applications such as a online based software platform that pulls
live data feeds and updates in real-time to the user. A custom
built website for adding users and products that achieved over
20,000 listings. Mobile applications. Data recovery and hardware
repair. Custom SEO services and secure hosting services.
I choose COLETEK because I know that a job will get done as
requested and within a reasonable time frame. Also I'm a stickler
for security and they're the best.
We had the pleasure of doing business with COLETEK who
provided us with service work. Their level of service
and the quality of their work is exceptional. They
communicated with us through the entire process to let
us know when the work would be completed. We are very
happy to have worked with them.
Our dealings with COLETEK were pleasant and
professional. Luke was kind and courteous and very easy to
talk to. High quality design concepts were emailed through
with regularity so that we always knew exactly what was
going on. I would recommend supporting hard workers and
local Australia business by working with COLETEK
