It's safe to say Workz has had a lot going on recently.
Workz, the Dubai-based mobile and IoT solutions provider, has opened a new Irish HQ, and acquired Germany’s Elatec Card and Security Solutions.
Following the move, the new European-based, Workz Group Telecoms Ltd, led by recently-appointed group CEO, Stephane Fund, now lays claim to two production facilities for SIMs (UICC) and embedded SIMs (eUICC) across Europe and Dubai - both of which are certified by the GSMA’s Security Accreditation Scheme. The company also has support operations in Ireland, Germany, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Istanbul, Dubai, Johannesburg, Senegal and Hong Kong. As part of the company’s expansion it also plans to open a special purpose-built European R&D centre in Q3 of this year.
Said Fund: “We’re delighted to have finalised our global expansion and restructure. We believe this gives a very strong base to realise our goal to be one of the world’s top players in mobile and IoT security by delivering a highly effective, cost-efficient and responsive local service to mobile network operators, device manufacturers and IoT partners. The market has been very receptive to the move and we hope to announce some new agreements with some big names very soon.”
Workz is currently the world's largest recharge card manufacturer, and a top 10 SIM card producer. The company was also recently recognised by BIS Research as one of the market leaders in embedded SIM technology, and is one of only six providers in the world to be accredited by the GSMA to produce and manage this new generation of SIM.
