This year marks the 25th anniversary of Advantech Europe, according to Chaney Ho, executive director of Advantech and GM of Advantech Europe.
“Since 2010, the One Europe strategy has served as the foundation of Advantech Europe and from 2014 Advantech has been highly focused on vertical markets to serve customer needs,” Ho reported. “This year, in order to strengthen Advantech’s leading position in the European IoT market, we are going to promote and expand our presence in local markets across many application domains.
“Through mergers and acquisitions and by working together with local partners, Advantech now has more than 400 locally-hired employees working in 14 offices in 10 European countries,” added Ho. “We opened new branches locations in Barcelona and Stockholm last year and major investments are being made to collaborate closely with local industries, governments, educational institutions and research organizations. The completion of the European Service Center is Advantech’s first step towards becoming Europe’s most comprehensive IoT solutions provider and will help us reach our target of €350 million revenue by 2025.”
