Global technology distributor Westcon Group last night officially opened the doors to its expanded Australian offices in St Leonards, Sydney.
The new site boasts a larger space and technical facilities as a result of the company’s stated 42 percent growth in the Australian market.
Additions to the premises include a larger warehouse spanning 2300 square metres, an integration centre that provides Westcon's resellers access to a dedicated staging facility, and the appointment of additional local staff.
The new premises were introduced by Westcon Group’s Australian managing director David Henderson, who described the expanded facility as “the end of the beginning”.
“In the past twelve months, we’ve invested not only in physical infrastructure; we’ve also [undergone] a lot of repositioning of our organisation,” Henderson said.
“There has been a change in the value proposition that we want to deliver to the marketplace that we believe resonates with our partners and our vendors.”
Westcon's expanded office includes a much larger warhouse.
Dean Douglas, global CEO of Westcon Group, flew into Australia to formally open the new offices.
“This facility has really gone through a tremendous transformation... I hope most of you had the opportunity to see it before, because this is a great 'after',” Douglas said.
Douglas said Westcon chose to invest in Australia due the “incredible transformation” of its local business, along with the strength of its management and the existing relationships with its resellers.
“Our Australian business, year on year, has grown 42 percent,” Douglas boasted. “When I look at our business across the globe, no country has grown that much."
