Long View taking first step into European market with opening of Amsterdam branch office
May 19, 2015
CALGARY, Alberta and DENVER, Colorado (May 19, 2015) — It’s about following the sun. And ultimately, it’s about seizing opportunity.
Long View (longviewsystems.com), one of North America’s most powerful providers of Hybrid IT solutions and services, will make its first bold step into Europe by opening an office in Amsterdam.
With partners such as Cisco and Microsoft already operating regional headquarters in Holland’s largest city, and a multitude of languages spoken in the cosmopolitan Dutch capital, Amsterdam offers Long View an ideal first entry point to provide European based customer service to many of our clients which in Long View fashion, will be world class”, says Long View Chief Executive Officer Gord Mawhinney.
“In the future, we’re considering a London project office — and we are eventually looking at the Far East, which would allow us to establish a follow-the-sun operation,” says Mawhinney.
“Beginning with Amsterdam, we’ll be aligning with our partner communities and using this global-focused strategy to continue to provide exceptional value and service to our customers with Long View employees across the globe,” he adds.
Amsterdam is set to become Long View’s 10th office worldwide. With Canadian headquarters in Calgary and U.S. headquarters in Denver, Long View also has branches in Toronto, Houston, Dallas, Edmonton, Vancouver, Phoenix, and Victoria.
Since it was established in 1999, Long View has grown steadily into a North American leader in the area of Hybrid IT, which requires a broad base of industry knowledge, agility, and collaboration. Similarly, Long View’s workforce has grown each year, with over 1,100 employees now engaged across the continent.
While Long View plans to continue its aggressive growth within North America, the time is right for European expansion to further service our global clients regardless of where and when they are operating across the world, says Mawhinney.
“Long View is a branch-based company and a growth-oriented company,” he says. “We’ll continue to do what we do best – bringing value to our clients through sustainability, innovation, and customer-service dedication — and we’re very excited to be establishing a presence in the European market.”
