STATE COLLEGE, Pa. and SYDNEY—Minitab, LLC., the leading global provider of software and services for quality improvement and statistics education, announced today the opening of Minitab Pty Ltd, its new subsidiary in Australia. The full service office is located in Sydney and will help fulfill the company's mission to provide professionals with the tools and resources they need to improve their processes and train their students.

Minitab, LLC. is best known for its flagship product, Minitab® Statistical Software. The package was originally created in 1972 to help professors teach statistics, but has since evolved into the premier software organisations use when analysing business data to improve the quality of their goods and services. It is used to implement virtually every major Six Sigma improvement initiative around the world, and to teach statistics in more than 4,000 colleges and universities.

"Our customers in Australia and New Zealand are committed to excellence, and we're excited to expand our global presence in a way that will help them achieve it," says Tina Konrath, Minitab's Group Executive for Sales, Technical Support and Training. "Minitab Pty Ltd allows us to give them the support they need, and to deliver it locally and directly."

Minitab Pty Ltd will provide sales and customer service for both Minitab 15 and Quality Companion 2 by Minitab™, a software package that gives professionals the tools, organisational support and guidance they need to implement quality improvement projects.

The office will also provide Training by Minitab™ and Technical Support by Minitab™, services that helped establish the company's reputation for delivering outstanding, customer-focused solutions.

Training by Minitab, LLCludes both public and on-site courses, as well as Quality Trainer by Minitab™ – a Web-based service that teaches professionals how to apply quality statistics using Minitab. Technical Support by Minitab is delivered by specialists who are highly skilled in Minitab software and quality improvement, and is available to Minitab customers free of charge by phone or online.

"Companies that analyse their processes and make sound decisions based on data are the ones most likely to thrive," said Elias Alam, Minitab Pty Ltd's General Manager. "Our goal is to help them embrace this approach so they can maximise their productivity and improve their bottom line."

Minitab Pty Ltd is Minitab's third subsidiary. In 1995, Minitab Ltd was formed in the United Kingdom to serve customers in Europe. In 1998, Minitab SARL was formed in France to serve French-speaking customers in France, Belgium, Switzerland and elsewhere in Europe and Africa.
