Advantech, already active in Eindhoven for 15 years, will be expanding its European Service Center in 2018. “Due to the continuous growth of the European market, Advantech was able to enlarge both production and logistics in the dynamic tech environment of Eindhoven”, the company says in a statement. “This location choice makes sense, as Eindhoven aims to research, develop and realize high-end smart city and smart society innovations.”
Advantech is providing embedded and automation products and solutions. Advantech offers system integration, hardware, software, customer-centric design services, and global logistics support. The company was founded in Taiwan. Advantech is located at Science Park Eindhoven (Ekkersrijt).
The expansion of Advantech will enlarge production, logistics and office facilities. Next to housing nearly 150 employees, the high-tech building will also serve as a demo site, displaying the latest of Advantech’s service IoT and Industry 4.0 applications. It will be fitted with the latest smart technology innovations: from high-tech building automation to the possibility for customers to observe the solutions in person.
“Through Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, the world will be more intelligent and smarter. Advantech wants to be the enabler that stimulates this transition into a new Internet of Things era.”
Jeff Shih, VP – Advantech Global Services
“This ambitious expansion of Eindhoven Service Center will help support our growth target of €350M revenue in the year 2025,” says Jeff Shih, VP of Advantech Global Services. “Most importantly, the new Intelligent Building System and Intelligent Factory System we’re creating here will provide a compelling real-world demonstration to customers of the value of our extensive range of smart technologies.”
Eelko Brinkhoff, Director BOM Foreign Investments and Trade adds: “We are very happy to see Advantech expanding their presence in Brabant. We supported them when setting up their first presence in the region, and we are proud to have supported Advantech again during this expansion. We believe that the presence of Advantech in the region of Eindhoven will not only create new employment, but it can also create new opportunities in smart technology innovations.”
The official opening of the Advantech Europe Service Centre in Eindhoven will take place on January 24, 2018.
