By locating its new office in London, close to a fast Elizabeth Line link to the city centre and a short distance from Brunel University, Analog Devices has made itself accessible to the capital’s huge pool of talent – not only software and hardware engineers, but also a vibrant community of entrepreneurs and start-up workers, as well as skilled staff in non-engineering disciplines.
Close to Heathrow airport, the new HQ office is also a convenient hub for the company’s domain specialists located in other Analog Devices locations such as Munich, Germany, Boston, US and Limerick, Ireland. These technology and applications experts will now more easily be able to take part in UK customer meetings hosted by Analog Devices.
Roughly a quarter of Analog Devices' business comes form the EMEA region, with around 10 percent that generated in the UK. The UK is seen as strategically important not just in terms of business volume and growth but also due to a culture of innovation and engineering talent.
For Analog Devices, the UK has a good mix of small, medium and large companies with no single large customer or region in the UK dominating in sales.
The new office, which has a distinctly contemporary look in contrast to the bland aesthetic commonly adopted by many engineering companies, underpins Analog Devices’ ambitious plans for growth in the UK. It easily accommodates all the staff who previously worked at Analog Devices and legacy Linear Technology offices in Weybridge and Marlow, with a generous additional floating capacity to accommodate customer meetings, visits by field engineers, training facilities and an expanding staff headcount.
