Cambridge company pushes into US
Cambridge technology company, XJTAG has expanded into the US. It has opened its first overseas office in Waltham, Massachusetts. The company will start small but hopes to scale up fairly rapidly.
XJTAG’s client base includes ARM, Aeroflex, Advanced Relay Corportion, Curtiss-Wright, Diagnosys, QSI Corporation, Imagination Technologies, Rheinmetall Air Defence Group, Thales and many others.It is a leading global supplier of IEEE Std. 1149.x compliant boundary scan development systems for designers and developers of electronic printed circuit boards and systems.
Using XJTAG allows the circuit design, development and manufacturing process to be shortened significantly by facilitating early development of reconfigurable and re-useable test scripts that can be used from design validation through prototype debugging and on into manufacturing.
Part of the Cambridge Technology Group, XJTAG already has a global network of distributors servicing Europe, the Far East, North and South America, and Australasia. But said the physical move into the US was significant.
“We have long-term plans to grow our US business. Massachusetts is the ideal location for us with excellent transport links, both nationally and internationally and boasts a significant cluster of hi-tech businesses and technology graduates.
“Currently we are enjoying an annual growth of over 40 per cent. We are thrilled to be increasing our presence in the US with the new office in Massachusetts. This will help us develop and support our growing client base.”
The move is also being heralded in the States by Deval Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts, who met the company on his recent UK tech tour.
Congratulating Simon Payne on the company’s investment, the Governor said: “We are delighted to hear of XJTAG’s plans to open an office in Massachusetts. The Commonwealth is a world leader in hosting the industries of tomorrow and the home of a growing innovation economy.”
