MontaVista Software Limited will be headquartered in Bracknell, and will market and support the full range of MontaVista products, including all editions of MontaVista Linux — Professional, Consumer Electronics and Carrier Grade — along with complementary technology products such as MontaVista Graphics. The company will also provide front line technical support for local customers and offer educational seminars.

MontaVista offers a family of products under the MontaVista Linux umbrella that address a broad array of software developer needs encompassing applications ranging from communications infrastructure to consumer electronics. Earlier, the MontaVista Linux family of products was available in the United Kingdom via a local distributor.

“After having set up a strong presence in North America and Europe, and establishing a solid foothold in Asia, we are now expanding our presence in the UK, which is currently seeing rapid growth for Linux development,” said Jim Ready, CEO and president of MontaVista Software. “We have seen growing adoption for our products here via our distributor and are now strengthening our presence with a full fledged office in the United Kingdom to serve the local software developer community.”

“There is a huge potential market for Linux in the United Kingdom, especially in telecommunications and embedded products in general,” said Ian Graham, president, MontaVista Software Ltd. “We have very good representation in Europe – with a presence in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, and Scandinavia. We have also done very well in the last few years in the UK market. I am convinced that the MontaVista Linux family of products, which are known for their robustness and scalability, will satisfy an essential need for a growing number of Linux developers in the UK.”
