Motorola Solutions is expanding further in North Africa with a new office and regional engineering centre in Cairo, Egypt. Motorola hopes that it will be a key office for the Middle East and North Africa region.
"Egypt's technology market is gaining significant momentum during this dynamic time of change. We see Egypt as a focal point for trade in North Africa, and we are committed to providing the talent and resources to our new Cairo office," said Motaz Hourani, vice president, Motorola Solutions, Middle East and North Africa.
Motorola will continue to deliver its mission-critical communication products and services directly to Egyptian customers and is now able to expand its Cairo base of operations to support customers outside of Egypt.
Motorola Solutions expects to hire about 20 local people to help run the new operation.
Motorola Solutions, which was formed when Motorola was split into two separate quoted companies at the start of the year, offers services including IDEN radio services and radio frequency identification to enterprise and government customers.
The company sold most of its network business, including its 3G mobile telecoms equipment business, to Nokia Siemens Networks earlier in the year.
