Technology giant Siemens has announced plans to develop a new service centre at Perth International Airport to provide maintenance and repair facilities for its customer base in the water, mining, oil and gas and associated industries.

Siemens, which today officially opened its new headquarters in Belmont, said completion of the 3,500 square metre, state-of-the-art service centre was expected by next year.

Siemens CEO Jeff Connolly was upbeat about the long-term prospects for the WA economy, which he believes is in transition from its construction phase to an operational stage, with a greater focus on cost and efficiency.

Mr Connolly said companies were looking to sweat their assets, maximise their investments, reduce waste and downtime and become more competitive.

“Western Australia is at a critical crossroads as we head towards the fourth industrial revolution,” he said.

“These global changes will affect every industry and we can help companies remain competitive and prepare for this change.

“Expert training and knowledge transfer on latest technologies will be part of this transition.”

Siemens is headed here by WA general manager Marcus Oates and employs nearly 200 people in the state.
