SA computer group to add 75 jobs

·1-min read

Computer company Allied Corporation will establish a new headquarters in Adelaide, creating 75 high-tech jobs.

Chief Executive Aron Saether-Jackson said the expansion would make the company one of Australia's largest PC manufacturers, with the capacity to produce 100,000 computers a year for domestic and international markets.

Allied currently operates three facilities in Adelaide's western suburbs, building machines for gamers across Australia, North America, Europe and South-East Asia.

It also produces highly specified hardware for other organisations including US-based defence and space industry groups.

The company is in advanced discussions with the South Australian government about the location of its new headquarters.

"A lot of people think there isn't much of an opportunity for high-tech computer manufacturing in Australia but we're proving these doubters wrong," Mr Saether-Jackson said.

"Our products are in demand all over the world. We make high-spec computers for gamers, for governments, for businesses who demand high performance and value."

Premier Peter Malinauskas said the state government had deliberately put in place policies to allow high-tech manufacturing to thrive in South Australia.

"A lot of people have heard me talk about how we need to turbocharge our high-tech industries in South Australia," he said.

"The first step is as a government, we prioritise local procurement. South Australian companies should be at the front of the queue when we're spending money as a government."
