Genetec is expanding its global footprint with the establishment and expansion of new R&D hubs and experience centers.

MONTRÉAL — Unified security, public safety, operations and business intelligence technology solutions provider Genetec today announced the opening of several new research and development hubs, Experience Centers and the expansion of several offices around the world.

New R&D Hubs

Underscoring its commitment to innovation, Genetec is expanding its global footprint with the establishment and expansion of new research and development hubs in strategic locations worldwide. Located in Vienna (Austria), Krakow (Poland), and Orléans (France), these R&D centers “will complement the company’s existing Montréal-based campus and its other R&D centers in Québec City and Sherbrooke (Canada), Paris (France), and Bruges (Belgium),” the company announcement says.

“These new offices serve as innovation hubs, fostering collaboration amongst our developers as they build the forward-thinking technology that Genetec is known for,” says Christian Morin, vice president of product engineering for Genetec Inc., in the company announcement.

“Our newest R&D centers will bolster existing initiatives and new capabilities such as intelligent automation,” he says. “Not surprisingly, to meet the growing demand for Genetec innovation, we’ve grown our R&D team by 50% in the past five years.”

New Experience Centers and Office Expansions

Genetec has also recently opened three new state-of-the-art Experience Centers in Washington D.C. (USA), Sydney (Australia), and Dubai (United Arab Emirates), in addition to its existing flagship Experience Centers in Montréal (Canada), Paris (France), London (England), Singapore and Mexico City (Mexico).

The company also continues to grow its Montréal headquarters campus, recently adding more than 100,000 square feet – including two subsidized bistros for its Montréal-based employees. The company has also significantly expanded its offices in London, Paris, Vienna, and São Paulo (Brazil).

“By launching new experience centers and offices in these strategic locations, we’re not just expanding our global presence; we’re scaling to meet the increasing demand for Genetec solutions across the globe. Our goal is to provide customers, channel partners, and prospects a hands-on encounter with our innovative technology, and an unforgettable brand experience,” said Michel Chalouhi, Vice President of Global Sales, Genetec Inc.

Since 2020, the company has grown its total headcount by 52% and currently has more than 2,100 employees located in 20 offices across four continents.

The company is recruiting to fill more than 80 new positions, including over 30 openings in R&D across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific regions.
