Cambridge, UK, 26 July 2010 - Ubisense, the world Leader in Precise Real-Time Location Systems announce the arrival of ten new full-time staff members along with over 30 contractors, as they ramp up the delivery capacity for new production deployments.
Bucking the economic downturn trend during 2009, Ubisense experienced over fifty per cent business growth, and gained many new industrial clients, including customers such as EDF Nuclear, Duke Power Caterpillar, Airbus, Shell, Posco, Cummins and Boeing along with repeat orders with existing production customers. In order to support new and existing customers and to maintain their leading edge product innovation, Ubisense have expanded their operations to include 40 new positions (ten full–time staff members and thirty contract staff) in both delivery and engineering teams.
Amongst the new appointments, Joe Newman, world renowned researcher of real-time location use in mixed reality joins the Ubisense software engineering team. Joe is a leading authority in indoor location and its fusion with other digital enhanced virtual experiences, and was a key figure in the exploitation of location based extensions to augmented reality while at the Technical Universities of Vienna and Graz, and Cambridge University.
Arnaud Martin joins Ubisense in its new organisation in France to support such strategic accounts as Airbus, EDF Nuclear and the French Army. Arnaud brings many years of first hand experience of running multi facetted projects across geographically dispersed organisations such as EDF. Most recently he was a key member of the GE Energy Delivery Management team in France. In addition to outsourced operations in Eastern Europe the appointment of Don D’Mello strengthens the company’s position with India as an additional outsourced development location.
“We are delighted to have been able to add such a large number of talented people to our already great Ubisense team during 2010,” said Richard Green, Ubisense CEO. “Ubisense is entering a really exciting phase. I maintain that any business is only as good as its people and we are lucky to have such an exceptionally talented team at Ubisense, including our world renowned Chairman who heads one of the few computer labs in the world to attract research funding from companies such as Google!”
