SYPAQ’s new Innovation Collaboration Office in Adelaide was formally opened yesterday by the Hon David Ridgway MLC, South Australian Minister for Trade and Investment.

Situated in the heritage-listed Margaret Graham Building in Adelaide’s Lot Fourteen Innovation Precinct, this new office builds on SYPAQ’s existing South Australian presence and projected growth in the State.

The office will be dedicated to supporting local industry and partnering with like-minded organisations to address complex and emerging technology challenges for the Government and Defence sectors.

Speaking at the event to mark the opening of the office, Minister Ridgway said:

“SYPAQ’s expansion into South Australia is great news for our existing organisations and provides the opportunity for the company to build its presence as they seek to grow new partnerships.

I look forward to seeing them integrate themselves into Lot Fourteen which provides a great collaborative environment for their business growth.”

SYPAQ Managing Director, David Vicino, said:

”The decision to establish an office in South Australia was an easy one to make. In addition to our existing customer base including Defence and Services Australia (formerly DHS), the local market is poised for growth in the Defence, Science and Technology sectors, and the ability to work alongside other innovative businesses at Lot Fourteen only enhances the opportunities available.”

SYPAQ CEO, Amanda Holt, said:

“SYPAQ collaborates with organisations large and small.

We have partnered with SME’s on Defence innovation projects, supported international firms to win and deliver large contracts, and worked with research institutions on next generation technologies.

We look forward to bringing this heritage and partnering ethos to South Australia.”
