Published: 31 January 2020 - Rachael Morling
eSOL, a specialist in embedded systems and IoT business, has set about implementing a major expansion plan in Europe. Formed in Japan in 1975, the company supplies a host of global blue-chip OEMs with embedded software technology tools, RTOS (Real-Time Operating Systems), middleware and engineering services.
“As customers strive to accelerate time-to-market, increase product quality, optimize return on investment and hit peak time-to-volume targets, eSOL's skills, experience and innovation are key drivers to customer success,” explains Bob Ueyama, executive vice-president at eSOL. “It’s important for a company like eSOL to seek new markets and increase its activities globally. This is why we are seeking expansion and greater market penetration in Europe and elsewhere.”
Rolland Dudemaine, vice president at eSOL Europe, said: “We have a multi-faceted approach to growing our presence in Europe. Firstly, we will take on more engineering personnel in Europe and hire staff in Germany to expand our local development capabilities and support to partners, for example. In turn, this will help us increase our business development activities and provide closer customer support in key vertical markets including automotive and industrial equipment.”
eSOL has the required product portfolio, strategic partnerships and engineering resources in place, having built its track record primarily in the embedded software industry, as Laurent Mares, VP Sales, EMEAI and Americas, explained: “We excel in the creation of high-reliability and high-performance RTOSes, development environments, and several types of middleware used in numerous embedded systems, from digital consumer products [including digital cameras] to automotive computer devices [including ADAS and autonomous driving] and industrial IoT systems [including edge computing]. In fact, our high-performance and scalable software platform, which is centred upon our unique and patented multi-kernel RTOS technology, is deployed in over 100 million embedded devices globally.”
