LONDON MontaVista Software has set up an office in the United Kingdom in Bracknell, Berkshire to market and support all editions of MontaVista Linux Professional, Consumer Electronics and Carrier Grade along with complementary technology products such as MontaVista Graphics.
The company will also provide front line technical support for local customers and offer educational seminars.
Previously the MontaVista Linux family of products was available in the United Kingdom via a local distributor. Jim Ready, CEO and president of MontaVista Software, said “We have seen growing adoption for our products here via our distributor and are now strengthening our presence with a full fledged office in the United Kingdom to serve the local software developer community.”
Ian Graham, president, MontaVista Software Ltd, added, “There is a huge potential market for Linux in the United Kingdom, especially in telecommunications and embedded products in general. We have very good representation in Europe with a presence in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, and Scandinavia.”
