by Dubaiforum

Genetec, a leading provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, is gearing up for a major global expansion. The company has announced plans to open new research and development (R&D) hubs and Experience Centres in strategic locations around the world, in line with its commitment to innovation and meeting increasing demand.

The new R&D hubs will be located in Vienna (Austria), Krakow (Poland), and Orléans (France), adding to Genetec’s existing network of innovation facilities in Montréal, Quebec City, Sherbrooke (Canada), Paris (France), and Bruges (Belgium). These hubs will drive collaboration among developers and support Genetec’s initiatives in areas like intelligent automation.

Christian Morin, Vice President of Product Engineering at Genetec, emphasized the significance of these new R&D centres in advancing the company’s capabilities. “Our newest R&D centres will strengthen existing initiatives like intelligent automation,” Morin said. “The growing demand for Genetec innovation has led us to expand our R&D team by 50% over the past five years.”

In addition to the R&D hubs, Genetec is opening state-of-the-art Experience Centres in Washington D.C. (USA), Sydney (Australia), and Dubai (UAE), complementing its flagship centres in Montréal, Paris, the City of London, Singapore, and Mexico City. These Experience Centres will offer customers and partners hands-on experiences with Genetec’s cutting-edge technology.

Genetec’s headquarters in Montréal have also undergone significant expansion, adding over 100,000 square feet of space and two new subsidised bistros for employees. Offices in London, Paris, Vienna, and São Paulo have similarly been expanded to support the company’s growing operations.

Michel Chalouhi, Vice President of Global Sales at Genetec, highlighted the importance of these expansions in meeting the rising demand for Genetec solutions worldwide. “Our goal is to provide customers, channel partners, and prospects a hands-on encounter with our innovative technology and an unforgettable brand experience,” Chalouhi stated.

Since 2020, Genetec has experienced remarkable growth, increasing its workforce by 52% to over 2,100 employees across 20 offices on four continents. The company is actively recruiting for over 80 new positions, including more than 30 roles in R&D, to support its expansion in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia-Pacific regions.
