Gaming testing specialist Gaming Laboratories International LLC (GLI) said it would relocate its Sydney, Australia-based laboratory from Rosebery to Seven Hills in the coming months, as it expands to serve the Asia Pacific region.
The new space will allow for a 30 percent increase in engineering staff as well as a 25 percent increase in laboratory floor space, the technical consultancy firm said in a press release on Monday.
GLI Australia said it is “adapting in order to ensure all customers’ needs are met”.
GLI opened its first Asian gaming testing facility in Macau in 2006. The company expanded it to a full-service testing laboratory in 2009. GLI also has an office in the Philippines.
“Expanding our offices, employing more staff and investing in the gaming industry means we can accept a greater workload from across the region, truly support our regional offices in Macau and the Philippines, and maintain the expectations and trust of our customers,” said Espee de Robillard (pictured), chief operating officer for Asia Pacific at GLI.
“We see our customers challenging the realms of the possible, and this is an area where GLI, as a global professional services delivery organisation, is building its knowledge base, expertise/specialist services, and this requires increased infrastructure,” he added.
GLI – one of the largest international independent providers of testing, inspection and certification services to the gaming, wagering and lottery industries – currently serves more than 475 global jurisdictions, according to a corporate website.
