HELSINKI, Finland, June 7, 2011 -
Ixonos, a world leader in creating wireless technologies, mobile devices,
services and software, with a special focus on providing inspiring user
experiences, has established a branch office in Seoul, South Korea. The
purpose of the new office is to serve as a customer interface, sales office
and technical support for the company's client operations in the region, both
with existing and new customers.
"Establishing a new sales interface is aligned with Ixonos' strategic
efforts to expand our business globally and supports our heightened sales
efforts towards internationally operating companies within the embedded
devices domain," says Ixonos Group's President and CEO Kari Happonen.
The office in Korea is part of Ixonos' APAC area operations, headed by
Vice President Tomi Kyllönen from Beijing. Ixonos has two service centres in
China and the company recently expanded its Device Creation Centre's
operations to work alongside the site in Beijing.
"We see a lot of promising potential in the APAC region. This is a
significant growth market for smart devices and many leading device
manufactures focus their R&D activities to the region", says Tomi Kyllönen,
the head of Ixonos' APAC Region. "While the office in Korea serves a strong
sales role, it is our Beijing service centre where the turnkey projects
combining both our device creation and user experience design services will
be carried out", he explains.
Ixonos contact person in Korea is Country Manager Seongman Yu, who joined
Ixonos earlier in 2011. The operating address is: Ixonos Korea, 6F, Housing
Center, 45-11 Yeoido-dong, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul, 150-736 South Korea.
