AWR announces China expansion with third direct office in Asia

High-frequency electronic design automation (EDA) software tool provider AWR Corp of El Segundo, CA, USA plans to open its third direct sales and support office in Asia with a Shanghai, China location. The announcement coincides with the end of AWR’s fiscal year, in which it has seen double-digit year-on-year growth in sales for the Asia-Pacific sub-region of Japan, China and Korea.

For the first time, China joined Japan in the top five markets for AWR software ranked by country. During the past fiscal year, AWR’s software installations have expanded dramatically in China at multinational firms operating in the region, indigenous Chinese telecoms companies, government research institutions and universities.

AWR’s first office in Asia was established in 2006 in Tokyo, Japan, followed by a second office established last year in Seoul, Korea. The firm’s third sales and support office in Asia, in Shanghai, is expected to be fully operational by the third quarter of this calendar year.

“AWR is experiencing rapid sales growth in Asia, and we are eager to continue investing resources to support the Asian market by expanding the technical support team currently in place in Japan, Korea and now China,” says executive & co-founder Ted Miracco. “AWR China and the Asia-Pacific region are an increasingly significantly part of our worldwide revenues, and we expect significant growth in our user base over the next several years,” he adds.
