Advantech's Global Gaming HQ, in Newcastle, UK Centre Gears up to Meet Higher Demand
Advantech, a leader in global intelligent systems (stock symbol: 2395Taiwan stock exchange), announced the expansion of its Advantech-Innocore facility in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne (United Kingdom). The company, a global leader in embedded computer products for the gaming industry, designs and manufactures some of the market’s most advanced PC products tailored specifically for the gaming industry.
The expanded Advantech-Innocore facility, located in the Silverlink Business Park where the company established itself some ten years ago, nearly doubled in size. The team, currently celebrating 20 years in the industry, has grown year on year and is set to grow further as a result of current market demands. “This expansion is excellent news for both Advantech-Innocore and the local community. It’s a direct result of the hard work put in by all of the gaming team, and the loyal support of our customers, enabling us to post a 6-year CAGR of more than 30%” said Edward Price, Managing Director, Global Gaming and EU Displays Division at Advantech. “Some of our flagship products were created right here in the UK – including the best-selling DPX range of embedded boards which are approved in all major gaming jurisdictions and running hundreds of thousands of slot machines and lottery terminals worldwide. Expanding our current facility was a logical choice for us as it helped minimise disruption.”
For its part, parent company Advantech is accelerating the deployment of branch locations throughout Europe to better leverage its 25 years of local industry experience.
