Cray global growth continues with opening of new EMEA headquarters in the United Kingdom

2 Jun 2015 Seattle, Bristol - Cray Inc. has established its European, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) headquarters at the company's new office in Bristol, United Kingdom. Cray continues to expand its presence in the supercomputing and Big Data markets across the region, and its new headquarters strengthens the company's commitment to the commercial, academic, and government customers in these countries.

Cray's new EMEA headquarters will serve as a regional base for its EMEA sales, service, training and operations, and as an important development site for worldwide R&D initiatives. The new headquarters will also provide the company with a centralized location for business engagements with new and existing customers.

"The EMEA market is one of our fastest growing regions and as we continue to expand with new customers, partners and employees, and further advance our R&D programs in Europe, now is the perfect time to centralize our operations in Bristol and provide a platform for continued growth", stated Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "Bristol is a great city with leading universities, and is quickly becoming a technology hub with a number of large high-tech companies and start-ups and a skilled workforce. The city is an ideal fit for our growing company and we are excited to be a part of the Bristol community."

The UK Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy, Mr. Ed Vaizey stated: "We are delighted that Cray has established its EMEA headquarters in Bristol. It is exciting to see a recognised technology leader make the UK one of its global hubs. It sends a very clear message to international organisations about innovation and excellence in the UK technology sector and the benefits of using the support available from UKTI, and we hope more companies follow Cray's lead in this regard."

Cray has numerous supercomputing, storage and analytics customers across the EMEA market. In just the last year, several high performance computing organisations in the region have signed contracts for new Cray systems. These customers include the PDC Center for High Performance Computing at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden; the Met Office in the United Kingdom; the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia; Stalprodukt S.A., a global steel processor in Poland; and Petroleum Geo-Services, a global oil-and-gas company headquartered in Oslo, Norway.

Additional Cray customers in the region include the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) in Reading; the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, which procured the ARCHER supercomputer for the UK National Supercomputing Facility at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland; the High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) at the University of Stuttgart; the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in Lugano, Switzerland; and the South African Weather Service in Pretoria, South Africa.

Cray's global headquarters are located in Seattle, Washington, and the company's manufacturing facilities are based in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Cray also has major offices in St. Paul, Minnesota; San Jose and Pleasanton, California; Austin, Texas; and Seoul, South Korea; and maintains sales and service offices in cities around the world.
