Global technology company HCL Technologies has opened a delivery centre and office in Adelaide to service Elders, a leading Australian agribusiness company.
HCL has worked with Elders for the past two years and on 4 December announced the opening of the centre and the signing of a six year contract with Elders. The partnership will enable the two organisations to build an agile IT environment that supports future business growth and delivers quality services to clients in Australia and overseas.
The Adelaide office is now part of HCL’s network of global delivery centres and will initially create 50 new jobs. At present, HCL employs more than 1,500 professionals in Australia.
‘The establishment of HCL in Adelaide offers a significant opportunity for the local agribusiness sector to enhance their service offering to clients, both nationally and internationally, through innovative technology solutions,’ says South Australian Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, David Ridgway in a media release.
‘South Australia’s strong credentials in defence and health industries, as well as our emerging space and autonomous vehicle sectors, mean there will be many opportunities for high calibre ICT solution companies, like HCL, in Adelaide.’
Austrade and the South Australian Government assisted HCL in establishing their Adelaide delivery centre and office by providing legal and regulatory information, and arranging site visits.

It is listed on The Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange of India, and is on the Forbes Global 2000 list.
