UXC to expand Tasmania presence


Business solutions provider and ICT consultancy UXC will open an enterprise delivery centre in Hobart.

An agreement between the Tasmanian Government and UXC will see the company open an enterprise delivery centre in Hobart.

Discussions between the parties have been underway for some time.

The state government sees an expanded UXC presence as a way of growing and stimulating the local economy, and is providing $1.7 million in industry support funding over five years to UXC.

The centre is expected to employ more than 60 people within 18 months.

"This is a major and exciting initiative for both UXC and Tasmania," said UXC managing director Cris Nicolli.

"As an Australian based Information Technology leader, UXC continues to look for opportunities to expand and develop the footprint of its capabilities.

"We believe this is an excellent example of what can be achieved by industry and government working together to realise an outcome that benefits both parties' interests and creates new local jobs."

He added "The new EDC will provide an expanded base for UXC in Tasmania. It will build on the presence of our UXC Eclipse business which has a Microsoft support base in Hobart.

"In addition we will further develop the links established in Tasmania during the major SAP system works undertaken by our UXC Oxygen business at Hydro Tasmania in 2013-14.

"Given UXC's Australian heritage, we are pleased to invest in and grow our business in Tasmania, and become an integral part of the state's ICT landscape."
