Investment boosts digital tech jobs in Melbourne

Elenium Automation has officially opened its global headquarters in Tullamarine, celebrating an investment that will create 25 new jobs at the plant in Melbourne North.

The company self-service and automation technologies for use in the aviation sector including kiosks for check-in, self-bag-drops, and automatic boarding.

The business has been supplying airports and airlines across the globe, including in New Zealand, Hong Kong, India, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea and Australia – while also working with national and international airline carriers.

“Our digital technology sector is nation-leading, so it’s no surprise more and more companies are choosing Victoria to set up shop,” said minister for Industry and Employment, Ben Carroll.

“We welcome Elenium to Tullamarine and congratulate this cutting-edge company on its successes that are creating new jobs for Victorians.”

Victoria is Australia’s digital technology leader, with skills and capabilities in cyber security, ICT education, artificial intelligence, web and mobile app development, cloud computing, systems data, software development and advanced digital tech research.

The state’s digital technology sector generates about $35 billion in revenue annually and is made up of 86,000 Victorians and 8,000 businesses.

“To have another digital company choose Melbourne as its operational base cements our reputation as a magnet for tech and business investment,” added minister for Innovation and the Digital Economy, Phillip Dalidakis.
