Perth-based IT service provider Empired (ASX:EPD) has secured a multi-million dollar three-year contract with Chinese-owned Minerals and Metals Group (MMG).
Under the agreement, Empired will provide a consolidated IT service desk for the Melbourne-based MMG, as well as executing several other infrastructure related projects, many of which have been created as a result of assets acquired from OZ Minerals Ltd.
According to an announcement from the ASX, the contract also allows for two one-year extensions, with the overall contract pricing based on infrastructure size and other service metrics.
This latest contract comes hot on the heals of Empired’s recent agreement with Victoria’s Department for Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD); a deal worth over $5 million dollars to the West Australian company.
In the ASX announcement, Empired managing director Russell Baskerville said, the wins would the company continues to grow its Victorian office and that the outfit was "actively seeking to hire the best IT talent in the region".
“These recent contracts also increase the level of recurring revenue that Empired generates through operating and maintaining core IT Infrastructure and Systems on behalf of its clients,” he said.
Baskerville also said the moves were part of a business plan intended to grow the company nationally.
