Ekinops (Euronext Paris - FR0011466069 – EKI), a leading supplier of optical transport and enterprise connectivity solutions, is pleased to announce the opening of its new head office in Lannion (Brittany).

These new premises reflect the Group's growth over the last twenty years, both in terms of sales and staff numbers, and the subsequent need for appropriate space for all activities centered around innovation, software development, production of cutting-edge equipment and telecom operators training.

Welcoming more than a hundred employees, Ekinops’ new headquarters in Lannion occupies a 20,000 m² site, ideally located at the heart of France’s historic center of telecommunications technologies. The building meets the need for shared workspaces, but also meets strong environmental standards with improved energy-efficiency.

The project, supported by the Lannion-Trégor Communauté organization, has led to the renovation of an existing 3,700 m² building, turning it into a new flagship for telecommunications innovation.

“The long-standing partnership between Lannion-Trégor Communauté and Ekinops illustrates our commitment to accompanying and supporting the growth of innovative companies in the region. We are proud to provide Ekinops with a modern, innovation-friendly infrastructure," says Gervais Egault, President of Lannion-Trégor Communauté.

“We are very proud of these new premises. They perfectly reflect our ambitions for the future. The opening of this new building gives us the opportunity to look back over the last twenty years and celebrate the boldness and tenacity of the group's founders, François Xavier Ollivier and Jean-Luc Pamart.” added Didier Brédy, Chief Executive Officer of Ekinops.

The Ekinops Group has a number of subsidiaries around the world: Ekinops France, based around Paris in Massy (France), Ekinops Corp. in Rockville, Maryland (United States), Ekinops Brasil in Campinas (Brazil), and other entities in Germany, Spain, Australia, India, Canada and Belgium.
