Theale, UK, August 2015….. Sondrel, the largest independent system-to-silicon design services consultancy in Europe, this week announced the opening of a new office in Rabat, Morocco. The company continues to expand its accredited ISO27001 design center locations and the depth of its engineering capabilities. The engineering team in Morocco, with expertise in verification and physical implementation, provide additional consultancy resources, at a competitive price-point, to support Sondrel’s international clients.

Graham Curren, CEO, commented ‘I am delighted to see the expansion of our engineering team in Morocco, and all of us at Sondrel extend to them a very warm welcome.'

Sondrel CEO added 'Our clients are looking for us to provide them with three key criteria as a leading IC design services company –  performance, cost and reliability of delivery for their IC. It is for this reason that client demand for secure off shore design facilities, with the appropriate engineering expertise, continues to be strong. In terms of engineering skills and capabilities we continue to add depth to our verification resources to meet the growing demand in this area in particular. With the new design center opening in Xi’an China, we have continued to press ahead with significant expansion this year. After considering several European locations, Morocco delivered both on the quality of the engineering resources and the quality of the facilities and communications infrastructure. Our clients now have access to an affordable professional engineering team, experienced in successfully delivering projects on time and on budget.’
