Altium Limited, a global leader in smart system design automation, native 3D PCB design (Altium Designer) and embedded software (TASKING), has expanded its presence in the EMEA region by opening a new office in Munich.
Since 2002, the European headquarter of Altium Europe GmbH has been located in Karlsruhe. Due to positive market development in recent years and the expansion of the company’s business activities, the European headquarter relocated to the new Munich office in September 2016.
As one of the most important economic hubs in Europe, Munich provides excellent infrastructure and connectivity, accompanied by a high density of high-technology companies, resulting in ideal conditions for the pan-European section of the global company. This equally applies to the maintenance of the existing customer base and new customer business activities.
“Leading industries increasingly adopt our product lines,” said Rainer Asfalg, vice president sales EMEA. “Following a very successful fiscal year and the opening of an additional branch office in the Netherlands, it was a logical step to strengthen our position in our core markets.”
In his role as vice president sales EMEA, Rainer Asfalg is responsible for the European headquarter. In addition to the sales department, his teams in Karlsruhe, Munich and Markelo (Netherlands) take care of the pre-sales support and sales operations for the Altium Designer and TASKING product segments. The Karlsruhe office additionally provides post-sales support (hotline, training and consulting), which enjoys great customer acceptance. Altium will increase its Munich staff count for this sector as well.
