ICT acquired by SAGE Automation
After more than 35 years of successful operation, Mark and Meredith are proud to announce the acquisition of their business Industrial Control Technology (ICT) by SAGE Automation. We see this as an excellent opportunity for our staff as well as providing ongoing and expanded support and capability for our clients.
SAGE Automation, the System Integration business of SAGE Group, was founded in 1994 and has since established a national presence, with a team of 450+ serving clients across a range of industrial sectors. The SAGE Group includes SAGE Automation as well as data analytics business Nukon, skills development arm Skills Lab (A Registered Training Organisation) and specialist contract placement service Embedded Expertise.
The acquisition encompasses all our staff, who will continue to service clients from our Geelong West base.
For ICT clients, it is business as usual, with the addition of access to the SAGE Service support network, available 24/7 and the support of the SAGE business services.
As the founders of ICT and as we look to our eventual transition to retirement, we are delighted to have found a new home for our team and our valued clients with SAGE.
We have always loved our work and the people we engage with. We see this move as an ideal opportunity for us to continue to be involved in the work that we love whilst ensuring a safe and secure future for our staff and clients.
SAGE Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Adrian Fahey said the two companies have important alignment in their culture. “It is evident by the trust and loyalty of their long-term clients, that the ICT team share our approach towards doing what’s right by their clients and that their team are given the freedom to do just that.” he said. “I also see a group of professionals who are inspired by life-long learning and driven by the ongoing development of their craft, we look forward to warmly welcoming the ICT team into the SAGE family.”
With strong alignment in capability including system integration, machine and process safety, MES and data analytics, the ICT and SAGE teams will now come together to share knowledge and continue to support our valued customer base.
SAGE Automation Victorian General Manager Paul Markwick, who is overseeing the transition, is delighted to add skills and a new location to the operation. “We believe that to best serve our clients, we need to be located where they are, so the addition of the team in Geelong expands our reach to service clients within the area, whilst benefitting from the entire SAGE team of specialist resources across Australia”.
