Fujitsu General Australia has officially opened its new head office and warehouse in the western Sydney suburb of Eastern Creek.
The 11,093sqm state-of-the-art 5-star Green Star energy rated building houses more than 80 Fujitsu General Australia head office and Fujitsu General Assist staff, and an 8,500 sqm distribution warehouse.
Fujitsu General ANZ managing director, Philip Perham, said the new offices will improve operation and distribution efficiencies nationally, create local employment opportunities and pave the way for Fujitsu General’s next stage of growth in the air conditioning market.
“Fujitsu General held a similar official opening, 10 years ago, 700 metres away. Relocating to the new premises in such a short space of time, reflects the business growth Fujitsu General has enjoyed over the last decade, thanks to the hard work of our exceptional teams nationally.
“Our new headquarters is designed from the ground up to deliver a work environment to meet Fujitsu General’s needs as an organisation for the next 20 years and beyond, both functionally and, most importantly, culturally.”
The new headquarters features an open plan office with collaborative working areas to encourage innovation and development; the latest sit/stand desks; an abundance of outdoor space; natural light throughout; an on-site gymnasium, well-being spaces, and fun zone; covered car parking for all staff; indoor kitchen, and outdoor lunch and barbecue facilities.
When Fujitsu General relocated to Eastern Creek in 2009, it was the first global brand to base its Australian head office in the area.
The new head office is once again leading the trend for the booming commercial area, with a building design that enables Fujitsu General to be energy efficient and help minimise its environmental footprint through the inclusion of timber and modern materials, as well as plants with a reticulating irrigation system.
