Located in Beijing's Haidian district, Cray Computing Equipment (Beijing) Co. Ltd. will focus on selling Cray supercomputing systems and storage, training end-users and administrators, and providing the excellent, direct customer service for which Cray has become known. With plans to staff the subsidiary with new Cray employees that are highly skilled in HPC, the company is making a long-term commitment towards building a strong base of Cray customers in China. Cray Computing Equipment (Beijing) Co. Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cray China Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cray registered in Hong Kong.
"Cray believes the Company needs to expand its supercomputing capability and expertise in the rapidly growing HPC field in China, and thus provide a strong, local presence to China's scientific community", stated Andrew Wyatt, vice president, Cray Asia Pacific. "The country's HPC market is of rising importance, and establishing a new subsidiary in Beijing reconfirms our dedication to providing world-class supercomputing technologies to meet the growing needs of China's HPC users."
Cray continues to expand its global expertise in designing, developing, marketing and servicing the world's most advanced supercomputers. In April 2009, Cray formed a new subsidiary in New Delhi, India, and currently has offices, subsidiaries and research and development facilities in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Australia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea and in several countries throughout Europe. Cray's corporate headquarters are located in Seattle, Washington.
