MiX Telematics makes major investment in the UK
In a move which reinforces the company's commitment to the UK as the centre of its European operations, MiX Telematics is to make major investments in Swindon and Birmingham.
In Swindon, a new technology base will be established to provide a Centre of Excellence for the development and support of the company's specialised Software as a Service (SaaS) products. This will see staff relocate from the firm's existing Swindon site into a new state-of-the-art facility.
In Birmingham, the company's existing premises on the Birmingham Business Park will be expanded to provide a centralised hub for MiX Telematics' European commercial activities. Included here will be a new distribution centre capable of supporting the company's growing customer base in both the UK and mainland Europe. Work on the site will commence in June 2013.
"This is an exciting time for MiX Telematics in Europe," says Marketing & Operations Director, Steve Coffin. "Ours is an ever-changing market, and to maintain our standing as a leader in the field we recognise the need to continually respond to and fulfil customer demands as rapidly as possible.
"Establishing a specialised Centre of Excellence in Swindon will allow us to focus on our core products while also moving ahead on the development of new solutions more quickly and efficiently. Underpinning our technology specialists' output, our Birmingham commercial and distribution operation will have the capacity to serve and support the market better than ever."
