Sage Automation expands into Whyalla

SAGE Automation is ramping up its operations in the Iron Triangle of South Australia

SAGE Automation is ramping up its operations in the Iron Triangle of South Australia.

In response to growing demand for its expert services in the region, the South Australian-based company has opened an office in Whyalla and is now looking to expand its local presence.

Sage provides automation and control systems for businesses across a broad range of industries. With its head office in Adelaide and offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and now Whyalla, Sage has developed a national presence, employs 200 staff and has an annual turnover more $40m.

Scott Fisher has been appointed as Sage’s Whyalla-based Senior Project Engineer to oversee the increasing work undertaken by the company in the region and focus on business opportunities that arise.

Adrian Fahey, the company’s GM said the establishment of a Whyalla office was a direct result of the company’s involvement in the State’s expanding resources and mining sector.

“Having a permanent presence in Whyalla will allow us to respond to our customer needs immediately and personally,” Fahey said.

“We are already working with some of the largest operators in the area and often have significant numbers of staff involved in projects at any one time.

“Establishing a permanent presence was a logical step and will ensure our high level of service will be maintained.

“We see enormous growth potential in the region. It is no secret Whyalla will play a major role in the future economic development of South Australia.”
