Texas-based Logitek Electronic Systems is teaming up with its Australian distributor Logitek Australia to open a new research and development facility in Sydney.
Located inside Logitek Australia’s Sydney office, the new engineering center will initially focus on software and applications.
Led by Paul Dengate, managing director of Logitek Australia, the team is made up of software and application designers, including System Architect Max Healey and Application Developer Phil Hertenberger.
“Our current software has evolved over many years, but with the move to the glass-cockpit concept and even more screens, it was time for a new approach to our user interface,” said Tag Borland, president of Logitek Electronics Systems.
“Australia has always helped us with testing and documentation, and when they expressed an interest in taking over our software development, it seemed a natural fit. That lets us focus in Houston on new hardware and designs, while the Aussies worry about the UI and software.”
