The Japanese ICT services giant, which first opened its doors in Australia in the early 1970s, has now moved its Australian staff from three separate locations to the new facility in the northern Sydney suburb of Macquarie Park.
A colourful traditional Japanese Kagami-biraki sake ceremony marked today’s official opening of the new purpose-built offices by the NSW Minister for Finance and Services, Dominic Perrottet with Masami Fujita, Head of Global Corporate of Fujitsu and Masato Takaoka, Japan’s Consul General.
The new headquarters building – which will house 850 staff - encompasses 9,400 square metres over 5 floors, and has a 5-star rated Green Star.
“And, as a technology company, I believe it is very important for Fujitsu to lead the way in the application of technology. By incorporating the latest tools and ideas in our own workplace, we are also able to showcase our commitment to sustainability; a key value of our organisation.”
Foster said the bespoke, energy efficient design of Fujitsu’s new offices also leverages wireless and collaboration technologies, advanced ‘Follow Me’ printing capability that allows staff to print to any printer in the building, and ‘soft phone’ technology that eliminates the need for separate telephones on desks.
“Macquarie Park is also very well serviced by public transport which will help reinforce Fujitsu’s green credentials. These, and other initiatives, will see a significant reduction in the company’s waste output and energy consumption.”
