Intellian opens new R&D centre in Korea

Satcom antenna manufacturer Intellian has opened its new Research and Development Centre in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, expanding the company’s production capabilities and providing additional capacity for new product lines.

The eight-floor building is adjacent to the company’s existing Korean headquarters and houses a Global Control Centre that allows Intellian to remotely monitor installed antennas, supporting remote diagnosis and response.

The facility houses upgraded product and quality verification facilities, with antennas using emerging phased array technologies expected to particularly benefit from a new compact test range to assist with development and testing.

“This new building, which extends our headquarters by nearly 80%, is a clear demonstration of our commitment to rapid growth and continuing advancement through new technology,” said Eric Sung, CEO, Intellian Technologies.

“With several new markets soon expected to come to prominence, we are investing in the future through development, innovation and expansion, determined to further our mission to empower connectivity for all. Our R&D engineering team is at the heart of this strategy, and we’re pleased to give them the facilities they need to grow from strength to strength.”

“Global connectivity is now essential to modern life, whether business or leisure. We’re seeing this across every market vertical, and Intellian needs to be ready with the connectivity solutions our customers need, whether their business is on land, sea or both. For this reason, we are investing heavily in both R&D and logistics, ensuring that Intellian will always be first to innovate and meet new demands.”

This construction project is the first of several new premises which Intellian expects to open in the coming months. A new European Headquarters and Logistics Centre will be completed this summer in Rotterdam, while Intellian’s UK team will take up new offices in London. Finally, a new R&D facility focused on emerging technologies will also begin operations in Maryland, USA.
