IT and digital services provider ASG Group expects to double the size of its South Australian workforce after opening a new national base in Adelaide.

The company will create 100 IT jobs at a new national operations centre (NOC) in the CBD, from which it will provide service desk and other services to its national clients.

ASG Group chief operating officer Dean Langenbach said the new facility, in Westpac House on King William St, was the “best operations centre” in Australia, accommodating the company’s expanded client base.

“The NOC has been built with further growth in mind and we are looking to open phase two in the near future,” he said.

Mr Langenbach said Adelaide was chosen as the location of its new IT hub, primarily due to the “smart state” reputation, its history of IT innovation and the availability of a highly skilled workforce.

ASG is part of the Nomura Research Institute – a Japanese-based consulting and IT group listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

The company’s Australian customers include private companies, State and Federal Government departments and infrastructure and service providers, including Airservices – a Federal Government body that has transitioned its IT support services to the new SA operations centre.

Investment Minister David Ridgway welcomed the expansion of ASG’s local operations as a “vote of confidence” in the state. “We are delighted that ASG is investing in its future growth and development here in SA.” he said.
