SpeedCast opens Perth office, unveils streamlined operations

Tuesday, 18 February, 2014


SpeedCast has opened a new office in Perth to meet the needs of its oil and gas and mining customers. The company has also announced plans to unveil its new streamlined global operations at the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference in Perth over 19-21 February.

In order to serve the natural resources sector, SpeedCast, Australian Satellite Communications, Pactel International and Elektrikom Satellite Services will be consolidated under the one global brand: SpeedCast.

Having acquired Australian Satellite Communications and Pactel International, SpeedCast can leverage a team of more than 50 professionals in Australia and more than 100 in the Asia-Pacific region.

“With the advent of the digital oilfield and new welfare applications, the industry’s bandwidth requirements have increased exponentially, putting excessive pressure on network capacity and overall operational costs,” said Mark Borgas, SpeedCast’s VP of Australia-Pacific.

“Our leadership position in the Australian VSAT market positions us well and our solutions address the key issues the sector faces - cutting operating costs while keeping pace with capacity demands, deploying services which are totally reliable in difficult conditions by having a service provider who is fast to respond and deliver.”

SpeedCast will officially open its new Perth office in the suburb of Canning Vale on 18 February and will then exhibit at the AOG Exhibition at Booth 5.

“Our rapid expansion into the Australian resource market complements SpeedCast’s existing presence in other key natural resources hubs worldwide, allowing us to support our customers wherever they operate,” said Pierre-Jean Beylier, CEO of SpeedCast.

“With key personnel in Sydney, Adelaide, Darwin and Perth, we are now strongly positioned to meet the local and global needs of our Australian-based customers. I am very excited by our investments in Australia and looking forward to demonstrating innovative, reliable and cost-effective solutions to the oil and gas industry during AOG this week in Perth.”
