Specialist manufacturer LicenSys has received a $38 million contract renewal with Western Australia’s Department of Transport for the supply of vehicle number plates.
LicenSys is based in Queensland but will use its Malaga production facility for the WA contract.
The company will manufacture new and remade vehicle number plates and sample plates for new number plate concepts, as well as create artwork for paper and electronic samples of number plate concepts.
LicenSys is the leading licence plate manufacturer in the state, having supplied vehicle number plates to WA over the past 20 years.
The contract has an initial expiry date of 2024 and final expiry date of 2032.
The Department of Transport said plate volumes were driven by demand from the WA public.
Indicative volumes provided in the tender were 447,000 individual plates – 201,000 pairs and 45,000 singles – comprising many different styles and utilising three main base material components.
A spokesperson from the department said pre-tender research identified LicenSys and potential overseas suppliers.
However, only one submission was received for the tender, which requires the plates to be produced in WA.
