Hitachi announced as first Aerotropolis tenant

Big news today, with Hitachi Australia announced as the first global tenant within the Western City & Aerotropolis.

The global giant will bring their vast experience to a local level, building a collaboration and research centre that will deliver jobs and promote innovative business in Western Sydney.

CEO Sam Sangster and Deputy Chair Geoff Roberts AM joined the Premier of NSW, the Minister for Western Sydney and DPC Secretary Tim Reardon at Parliament House this morning.

At the home of the NSW Government, they met with Dr Norihiro Suzuki, VP and CE of Hitachi and Mr Hideki Osumi, General Manager of Smart Digital Solution Business Development, to announce this next step forward in the partnership.

The Kyoso centre is based on Hitachi's successful Kyoso-no-mori facility in Japan and will promote collaborative creation-style research between business, academics and government.

It will create more than 85 advanced technology jobs in Western Sydney and is an important step towards ensuring the Aerotropolis delivers on its promise to be a hub for innovation, research and development.
