Tonsley is a 61-hectare site being developed by the Government of South Australia as a centre for innovation and collaboration, bringing business, education, research and the community together.

Four South Australian companies have recently been announced as new tenants:

Basetec Services – a $9 million investment by the composite pipeline technologies company combined with $1.5 million from the Government of South Australia to establish facilities at Tonsley, including a Centre of Excellence in Composites Research and Development

Signostics Limited – a Thebarton-based international medical devices manufacturer relocating to Tonsley 

Zen Industries – relocating its head office, research and development, manufacturing, warehouse and distribution operations from Norwood and Woodville

MAN Diesel and Turbo Australia/Remotenergy – the signing of an MOU with the Government of South Australia which envisages the establishment of a Centre of Excellence to promote clusters around hybrid power development

The site will also soon welcome Tier5, Flinders University and Siemens.

Stage 1 of the site’s road networks is complete and a new ring road, which will give vehicles unrestricted access throughout the site, will be finished by the end of this year.

Tonsley is being jointly delivered by the Department for Manufacturing, Innovation, Trade, Resources and Energy (DMITRE) and Renewal SA.
