The office is located at Gangnam Station Centre in Gangnam, a rapidly growing business district in Seoul.

“This operation will focus on the commercial and government opportunities in Korea and compliments Black Box’s existing presence in Korea where it presently supports communication systems for the U.S. military through the Black Box Federal Division headquartered in the U.S. Black Box Korea signifies another milestone for the company, marking Black Box’s direct entry into one of Northeast Asia’s fastest growing economies,” the firm said in a statement. “Many Korean companies are now investing to expand or upgrade their data and voice network infrastructure systems and Black Box is strategically positioned to capitalize on this opportunity through the marketing of its technical services and solutions.”

Denzil Stephenson, currently regional general manager, asia pacific, will take over as acting country manager of Black Box Korea reporting to Sr. Vice President of Pacific Rim and the Far East, Francis Wertheimber.

“We are excited that the new office will enhance our existing presence in Korea and will enable Black Box to offer truly professional IT infrastructure services that we are famous for the world over,” Wertheimber said.
