On September 10th, Toshiba’s Global Commerce Solutions and America Business Solutions subsidiaries celebrated the opening of their collective 38,000-square-foot building in Guadalajara, Jalisco, with a ribbon-cutting attended by government and company officials.
Toshiba has invested US$ 2 million U.S. dollars to further modernize the company’s products and solutions development center. The move signals Toshiba’s increasing presence in Mexico’s technology hub.
“We were pleased to be joined by so many esteemed people today,” said Scott Maccabe, Toshiba’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Toshiba’s expansion in Mexico is a central element of our global growth strategy. Toshiba’s expert team in Guadalajara produces the products and services we offer worldwide and is instrumental to our company’s success.”
Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions is a global supplier of retail point of sale technology. In Mexico, some of its customers are Grupo Alsea, Costco and Kidzania.
Toshiba Mexico has increased its staff from 48 to 298 employees since beginning operations in the country in 2006. Toshiba’s Guadalajara operation has also undergone significant growth by expanding from 36 to 164 employees since that time.
Toshiba repurposed furniture, IT equipment, lighting and even carpeting at the company’s new location, as part of its commitment for a more sustainable planet.
