Global, a turnkey provider of customised network, broadcast and digital signage systems and services worldwide, has announced it has expanded its Melbourne campus with a fourth building. With the new space, which opened on March the 1st, the company has effectively tripled its square footage in Melbourne in the last decade.
According to Kelly Rich, Vice President of Operations for Consumer and Digital Signage Solutions, the new building is approximately 22,400 square feet, and will enable the company to hire at least 21 new employees over the next three years. “This campus was originally designed for four buildings back in 1997,” he said. “This parcel may be fully built out, but with USSI Global, there’s always the possibility for further expansion.”
Much of the new building space will be dedicated to USSI Global’s efforts to provide end user terminals for new LEO satellite constellations being launched by several customers. Rich said the systems will be used to provide broadband service to commercial customers supporting corporate, maritime, aviation and education markets. Each terminal includes an antenna, cabling, mounting parts and modem. USSI Global manages the distribution and integration of the equipment.
“The new building will allow us to condense our off-site storage and better serve the needs of our LEO satellite customers,” Rich added. “Combined, we now have close to 100,000 square feet across the campus, which we also use to house our Network Operations Center, Samsung Fast Track White Glove service, repair centre, and more. This additional square footage will help us handle additional support for the needs of our customers.”
