On March 5, 2019, the Vice Mayor of the City of Eindhoven, Mrs. Monique List, kicked off the grand opening of Innodisk’s new European Headquarters in the Netherlands. The company, now located in Eindhoven, is a provider of industrial embedded flash and storage products and technologies, with a focus on enterprise, industrial and aerospace industries. Together with another nine facilities around the world, Innodisk covers the global market for storage solutions, employing 700 people.
Innodisk chose to be in Brabant already in 2011 because of the easy access to European markets the region has to offer, the well-rooted local Taiwanese community and the Brainport Eindhoven high tech cluster just around the corner. In 2017, Innodisk expanded its European activities and relocated to a new building elsewhere in Eindhoven. Due to substantial growth of its European business, the company needed more room to move less than two years later.
Late 2018, Mrs. Anita Po, Managing Director for Innodisk Europe, signed the contract for the purchase of 1,000 m2 of office and storage space, housing the company’s European Headquarter, marketing & sales, service and distribution operation. “Currently, Innodisk employs approximately 20 people. Our company now shows an annual growth of 15%, and around 30 people will be needed within the next three years”, according to Mrs. Po.
Innodisk is an important asset to the high tech ecosystem in the Eindhoven area, and definitely contributes to the strong reputation of the Brabant region as an excellent stepping stone for international companies doing business in EuropeEelko Brinkhoff - Director of BOM Foreign Investments
Together with the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) and Brainport Development, the BOM assisted Innodisk with relocating the operation, recruiting personnel and taxation and immigration matters. In 2018, Innodisk received NFIA’s ‘Award of Appreciation’ for its continuous presence in the Netherlands since 2011, and its role as enthusiastic corporate ambassador for our country.
“Brainport Eindhoven is very proud to be the host of this well-recognized high tech company”, says Mrs. Monique List, Vice Mayor of the City of Eindhoven. “Innodisk’s continuous commitment to technical innovation fits right in with the top technology region we currently are and will most definitely improve the quality of our high tech cluster.”
