SAP consulting firm, Oxygen Business Solutions recently celebrated its 10th birthday staging parties across its Auckland, Wellington, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane offices.
The company opened for business in 2001 and Oxygen CEO, Mike T. Smith, said it was born out of an idea of the then Carter Holt Harvey CEO, Chris Liddell, who later became CFO at Microsoft.
“The idea was to take the intellectual property and human capital developed by Carter Holt Harvey’s internal IT department and create a standalone specialist SAP services company,” Smith said.
The company started off with 132 staff and had one customer, Carter Holt Harvey. Revenues were in the realm of $NZ30 million and working from one office in Auckland.
A decade later, Smith said Oxygen has become the largest specialist SAP services company across Australia and New Zealand, winning numerous SAP excellence awards, and earning a reputation for quality, flexibility, delivery and integrity in all aspects of its business. Oxygen is now fully owned by ASX-listed UXC Limited.
