Würth Elektronik eiSos, manufacturer of electronic and electromechanical components, is increasing its presence in the Spanish market with the new Design & Application Centre in Barcelona, which opened on 24 November.

The establishment of the new branch in the Catalonian capital will also make it possible to devote more effort to the development of customer-specific solutions and applications. Competence and resources for personal support in the areas of product management and application development are also being reinforced.

With its excellently equipped laboratory, the centre will not only enhance the current cooperation programme with the University of Valencia, but also further intensify the collaboration projects with cooperation partners and research institutes throughout Catalonia.

Besides the developers’ offices, the facility also hosts a number of open-plan spaces designed to enhance creativity and communication in the development of innovative solutions, as well as amply dimensioned rooms for events and seminars. The offices for the developers are in close proximity to the already existing sales and marketing offices, meaning that customers will be able to benefit even more from the extensive range of services offered.

With the opening of the Design & Application Centre Würth Elektronik eiSos is creating a great number of jobs for engineers and software developers in Barcelona. The focus of the activities of the people employed there will lie in the development of software for design tools and cross-platform apps and also of particularly energy-efficient and electromagnetically compatible power inductors, together with innovative areas of application.
