Business partners and guests made their way to the Sydney suburb of Silverwater last week to help Asus celebrate the opening of its new Australian headquarters and notebook service centre.
Barbara Perry MP and the CEO of the Australian Computer Society, Dennis Furini, were guests of honour at the event.
Asus Australia director, Ted Chen, said the hardware manufacturer was currently the seventh biggest seller of notebooks in this country but wanted to break into the top five this year.
This, he said, would help establish Asus as a household name in Australia.
"The opening of the Australian HQ is a significant milestone for Asus," Chen said. "It increases the support we can provide our dealers and distributors."
There are currently 16 staff employed at the new office but the 5500sqm site has plenty of spare capacity to handle future expansion plans. n
