LONDON Wireless test system developer, LitePoint Corp (Sunnyvale, Calif.), has opened a new European office and development laboratory in Allerød, Denmark. With the new office, LitePoint will be expanding already existing activities, and hiring more engineers.
“There were essentially two reasons we chose Denmark and Allerød,” Benny Madsen, LitePoint CEO, explained. “They have outstanding engineering talent, here, and we are right next door to Europe's cellular center of gravity.”
Jan Bo Nielsen, managing director of LitePoint Europe added, “We have made these changes for several reasons. It closes our value-chain loop in Europe bringing support much closer to our European customers, and it puts us in the center of Europe's cellular activities as we gear up to pursue the converged wireless market.”
“I am glad LitePoint is increasing its activities in Denmark as it grows its business in Europe,” said Ole Frijs-Madsen, director of Invest in Denmark. “It underlines Denmark's strong wireless-technology competencies, especially in wireless R&D. In addition, it underlines the strong position Denmark has as a hub to European markets.”
