Our Story


With the decline in the Australian automotive industry, the 3 main OEMs, Holden, Ford and Toyota, have announced that they are ceasing all manufacturing operations around 2016/2017. Since the Australian automotive industry has existed for several decades, many highly skilled and experienced automotive design and development engineers will become available. They are a scarce and well sought after resource in emerging regions like China, India, Thailand, Indonesia etc. We have the advantages of past working experiences with the Asia Pacific region and similar time zone.

Ms Wen Shan and Mr Kin Cheong are founders and directors of RLE. They have established the company to focus on exporting professional engineering services to global Auto OEMs, primarily in China and other Asian regions. It is the vision of RLE to tender for projects by Chinese automotive companies and developing the advanced design, intellectual property and innovation for these projects in Melbourne, Australia.

Since Nov 2016, Wen Shan, one of Co-founders has joined Bayside Group Automotive, one of the largest automotive recruitment firms in Australia as their Business Development Manager for APAC. Enquiries for specialised engineer talent can be made through Bayside group website. click here
