The PCB design market is seeing rapid expansion in Europe, spurring significant growth in the region’s electronic design industry. In an effort to support that growth, Altium has announced that it is establishing a direct business model in Spain and Italy to enhance relationships and improve the overall experience of customers using Altium Designer, PDN Analyzer, Altium NEXUS and other products. Altium Europe, headquartered in Munich, Germany, will take over responsibilities for sales and support for all existing and new customers effective February 28, 2018.

“This transition signifies a major step forward in our mission to strengthen the relationship with our European customer base,” stated Chris Donato, head of global sales for board and systems at Altium. “Altium customers in Spain and Italy will benefit tremendously from having a direct channel of communication with our sales and support teams, which in turn helps us better serve those regions.”   

Altium Europe now has direct customer relationships in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland and the BeNeLux countries. They also have nine sales and support offices across Europe.

“We are incredibly excited for the opportunity to more closely support a wider range of our European customers,” said Altium Chief Operations Officer Ted Pawela. “Altium’s mission is to empower the engineers and designers who create electronic products and systems, and as the PCB sector continues to grow in European countries like Spain and Italy, it’s important that we service and nurture these expanding markets.”
