Mellanox Technologies’ headquarters in Singapore will be our first physical presence in Asia outside of China and Japan, hosting groups of business professionals and engineering teams,” said Charlie Foo, vice president and general manager, Asia Pacific, Mellanox Technologies. “The new office will help us to strengthen and accelerate our business across Asia Pacific, and foster further collaborations with our partners and customers.”
The first of its kind in the region for Mellanox, the joint office and hi-tech solutions centre is located in Suntec City Tower 3, and is expected to be fully operational by November this year. The new APAC headquarters will house business and R&D teams to accelerate the region’s revenues and solutions development around Mellanox’s interconnect technology.
