Sondrel doubles workforce and moves to new HQ

Following a succesful 2013, IC design consultany, Sondrel, has announced a move to a new corporate headquarters. Doubling their workforce to almost 150 over the past 12 months, Sondrel now has the largest team of IC design engineers and consultants in Europe, with expertise covering all aspects of the design flow and EDA software suites.

It is this greatly increased employee number that has prompted the company to relocate to a new purpose-built corporate HQ in Theale Lakes Business Park, Berkshire, in the UK’s silicon valley region to the west of London. Sondrel’s global expansion has also led to the opening of new regional offices during 2013 including one in Ra’anana, Israel, another in Turku, Finland, plus larger premises in Shanghai, China.

Graham Curren, CEO, Sondrel, commented: "We doubled our workforce during 2013 and by the end of January will have 150 employees worldwide. I anticipate this number increasing to around 200 by mid-2014. Sondrel works with some of the most prominent technology companies across the globe and we hire talented design engineers, managers and administrators who enable us to offer exceptional levels of partnership to our clients. I’m delighted that this culture of commitment and partnership has produced such a successful year for us."

Proactive in encouraging young people who wish to make a career in IC design, Sondrel has recently employed several graduates from York and Southampton Universities. The first intake of students on a specialist IC design course at the University of Nottingham's campus in China have also graduated this year. Investing in the future, Sondrel set this course up as part of a multi-million dollar programme in partnership with the University and Mentor Graphics. The course aims to address the severe shortage of qualified IC designers in the region, which China urgently requires for its rapidly growing IC industry.
