Hema's New Explorer Headquarters

Posted on: 13/03/2015

Hema's new building is nestled in Garden City Office Park

After 15 years within Brisbane Technology Park, Hema has officially relocated to Garden City Office Park, a short distance from its previous Eight Mile Plains office in Brisbane’s south.

The move to more modern premises (which you can view online as a 360° panorama) carries on Hema’s evolution, unlocking potential for digital product development as the company looks towards the future of adventure navigation.

“We’ve been transforming our business from the inside out, so it was time to break camp, leave behind our purpose-built publishing warehouse, and move to our new high-tech explorer hub,” said Rob Boegheim, Hema Managing Director.

The building reflects Hema’s culture inside and out, with open plan office space looking out on tall trees through countless windows on both floors. This new explorer hub will be used to create more advanced navigation products, and to use new data capture techniques for more immersive and detailed Hema maps than ever before.

Hema’s new office hours are from 9:00am to 4:00pm, and as products are not kept on site, Hema’s corporate headquarters does not act as a shopfront for Hema Maps products. To learn more about our product range, make purchases and get online technical support for a Hema Navigator or Hema mobile app, go to www.hemamaps.com.au.

Hema’s relocation has now cleared the road ahead, allowing a company that’s been evolving since it was founded in 1983 to take the next step towards an even more prosperous and innovative future.

“Moving is always a cleansing process, leaving behind all the stuff you no longer need for the journey ahead,” said Rob.

“So here at Hema’s global explorer headquarters, we will continue to design and build the world’s best 4WD map and navigation products, and as always we’ll be out there mapping the road less travelled."
