Nokia's PTS-Based Facility Now Fully Operational
Nokia's fibre optic design centre in the Granada Health Science Technological Park (PTS) is now fully operational. The multinational corporation selected the PTS as the location for its new facility a year ago, with support from the Regional Government of Andalusia and Granada City Hall.
In one year, thanks to the human talent provided by the University of Granada, Nokia-Tecss has created 65 skilled jobs, and the company expects to bring this number up to 90. These figures were provided by Nokia's global head of fibre optic design engineering, Jorge Buezo, and the director general of Nokia-Tecss, Miguel Ángel Xifra, during a recent visit to the company's offices in the PTS Business Centre by Francisco Cuenca, mayor of Granada, and Jesús Quero, PTS Foundation managing director.
Mr Buezo and Mr Xifra agreed that, in addition to the institutional support and human talent available, “one of the main reasons we are in Granada is the added value of being in a city like this, which boasts a university at the cutting edge of biotechnology and computer engineering.”
Experts at Nokia-Tecss’ new centre in the PTS are currently working on design projects for networks in Spain and Poland.
Service company Nokia-Tecss was established six years ago and employs some 500 people. Its main offices in Spain are in Madrid, Seville and Granada.
