Aristocrat Builds R&D Center in South Africa

29 July 2008

Australia-based gaming machines and technology provider Aristocrat Leisure says its South African division is building a research and development center in the country to support African and European market requirements.

"Whilst we have been working closely with Sydney R&D in the past, the market requirements for this region are somewhat different to that of Asia Pacific," said Systems Director Devon Dalbock. "I believe that local R&D will certainly make us more agile in responding to market requirements, and ultimately this must translate to a competitive advantage."

The South African office has been recruiting for a Research & Development Manager and other various developer roles since June.
