End of an era for Boileau Business Technology

After almost 35 years in Adelaide, Boileau Business Technology has been sold to Viatek South Australia Pty Ltd, which is part of The Viatek Group, a Victorian privately-owned company and Fujifilm dealership.

The sale has been attributed to the State Government’s acquisition of Boileau’s Cowandilla premises under the Land Acquisition Act, as part of the upgrade of the Sir Donald Bradman Drive and Marion Road intersection.

Boileau was advised of this decision by the government in March 2023, and the official compulsory acquisition was gazetted last week.

Founder Angelique Boileau says, During the past 10 months it has become increasingly obvious that there is no replacement for our iconic, bespoke-built premises or landmark location of the building – hence, when the opportunity arose to sell the business to Viatek the family decided to do so.”

Our priority in making this decision was ensuring the best possible outcome for our employees and clients, and the future prosperity of the business. We are confident that Viatek can achieve this.

We couldn’t find a better fit to provide our valued clients smooth continuity of business, as well as assurance that all of our current staff are retained.

This has provided my family and me great comfort and peace of mind.

The business sale has brought mixed feelings for our family, however, as the saying goes every dark cloud has a silver lining” and we have found our silver lining”.

Angelique and her co-founder Michael Boileau will now be focusing on their next adventure, the establishment of the Boileau Family Foundation with their daughters Danielle and Melanie.
