We’ve Turned Ten
Posted 20 April 2011 by Stuart Dickinson | 2 Comments
Oxygen opened for business in 2001. The company was born out of an idea of the then Carter Holt Harvey CEO, Chris Liddell who later became CFO at Microsoft. The idea was to take the intellectual property and human capital developed by Carter Holt Harvey’s internal IT department and create a standalone specialist SAP services company.
Oxygen’s mission was to grow and thrive, turning a Carter Holt Harvey cost centre into a wholly owned but separate profit centre, reducing CHH’s overall IT costs and – eventually – recouping CHH’s investment via a commercial sale. Oxygen was born. Starting with 132 staff and one customer – Carter Holt Harvey – and revenues of $NZ30 million, working from one office in Auckland.
A decade later, Oxygen has become the largest specialist SAP services company across Australia and New Zealand, winning numerous SAP excellence awards, and earning a reputation for quality, flexibility, delivery and integrity in all aspects of its business. Oxygen is now fully owned by ASX listed UXC Limited.
