Eli Innovation owner Greg Cole said a Chinese order came out of the blue.

A Warragul manufacturer of dairy equipment is celebrating its first major order from China.

Eli Manufacturing will ship 60 units of its stand-alone milk meter to China this week.

Owner Greg Cole said the order came out of the blue recently, several years after the company abandoned an unsuccessful sales push into China.

Mr Cole said the first order was worth about $45,000, but the Chinese company was talking about a potential order for 1000 more units.

“That’s more than our annual production.

“If that happens, we’ll have to ramp up our production and almost double our workforce.”
