Melexis already has 10 R&D centers located across the globe - Tessenderlo and Ypres (Belgium), Sofia (Bulgaria), Paris (France), Erfurt and Dresden (Germany), Manila (Philippines), Bevaix (Switzerland), Kyiv (Ukraine) and Nashua (New Hampshire, USA). These facilities support the company in creating advanced semiconductor technology to address the rapidly evolving automotive, industrial, medical, smart domestic appliance and building automation sectors. The core competence of the new design center in Grasse will be focusing on the automotive industry.
“After careful consideration, we decided that Grasse presented us with a great opportunity to strengthen our engineering assets. We identified this as a highly conducive environment in which to place a new R&D center,” said Nicolas Simonne, global development and quality manager for Melexis.
