Emydex Technology, based in Dublin Ireland, is a leading supplier of Factory Floor data capture, Production Reporting and Traceability Software systems to Meat, Fish & Food processors around the world.
After a number of years working with Enterprise Ireland to find the right partner to represent Emydex in Australasia, we are delighted to announce an Emydex partnership in Australia & New Zealand. The company recently announced it had signed contracts with BCP Pty Ltd based in Brisbane, Australia. BCP’s directors are well known within the Australasian Food Processing Industry as suppliers of Industrial hardware and software systems with a reputation built over 20 years for quality, innovation and proactive customer service.
As the exclusive agent for reselling Emydex systems in Australia and New Zealand, Emydex now have a team of six dedicated staff based in Brisbane, as well as a network of consultants spread across Australia and New Zealand, who are providing implementation and technical support for Emydex software systems implemented in the Southern Hemisphere. The added advantage being that 24 hour support for Emydex’s existing Northern Hemisphere customers can be bolstered with assistance from the new Support team in Emydex’s Brisbane base.
BCP will add value to the Emydex software offering in the local market by providing for full turnkey solutions to Foods processors that includes all Industrial hardware requirements such as scanners, Industrial PC terminals, scales and printers etc. Heading up the Australian operation is Ian Carson, who had previously acted as Emydex’s agent in Australia and New Zealand for the past two years. Formerly CEO of Cedar Creek systems in Australia, Ian joins Emydex Australasia as company CEO. With over 20 years’ experience of working with a variety of food processing systems in Australasia, Neil Pitt will act as Director of Sales and Customer Relations.
One of Emydex’s most senior and long serving developers also moved to Brisbane in January with his family in order to oversee the initial software installation in Junee Lamb, based in New South Wales, as well as to provide customer training and helping with the upskilling of BCP programmers.
To coincide with the 2016 launch, two of Emydex’s company directors visited Australia and New Zealand for 18 days in February, and met with over a dozen meat, poultry and seafood processors, as well as Emydex partners and consultants based in WA, Victoria and Auckland.
Since the visit Emydex have signed their second customer in Australia, a beef processor based in Victoria, and are in contract negotiations with a number of other processors with a view to starting further new projects in the region.
In January 2016, Emydex signed contracts with the largest Ostrich processor in the world based in Oudtshoorn, South Africa, a project that will see Emydex software rolled out to three Ostrich, Sheep and Game abattoir plants as well as Value added and further processing plants over the coming eight months.
