UXC (ASX:UXC)’s business arm UXC Connect has penned an outsourcing deal with manufacturing company DuluxGroup Australia for the building and management of a new IT infrastructure.
The contract, to run for an initial three year period with the option of a two year extension, will cover the construction of the new IT environment and provide infrastructure management and support services for DuluxGroup’s approximate 2000 users in the Asia Pacific region.
UXC financial director, Mark Hubbard, could not comment on what the deal was worth, but told Computerworld Australia the contact was a “fairly large” win for UXC.
“This is a very exciting contract for us and DuluxGroup as it requires us to build a complete, custom IT infrastructure and environment alongside DuluxGroup from the ground up,” UXC managing director, Cris Niccoli said in a statement.
According to an ASX statement, the project is already underway with the establishment of new data centres, communications and infrastructure in line for the infrastructure hand-over throughout the Easter period.
The company recently announced two Victorian public sector contract wins, securing managed IT infrastructure contracts for up to five years with the Victoria WorkCover Authority and the Transport Accident Commission. In November the company was yet to find a willing buyer, ten months on from announcing that it was considering selling off the company in an effort to unlock greater shareholder value.
