The company said Friday its new facility offers a workspace for engineers, research, development and innovation professionals to collaborate with customers, partners and suppliers.
“The move to One the Square is part of Thales’s wider strategic goal to ensure the business delivers sustainable profitability and growth,” said Alan Kessler, CEO of Thales e-Security.
The facility will also house the company’s Cambridge eSecurity operations and will employ more than 100 specialized engineering professionals, Thales noted.
