Panorama Antennas is a family business with a global presence and a seventy-year history. The company, which is headquartered in London, has chosen Mérignac for the location of its new sales office and European logistics platform.
A market leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance antennas, the company plans to strengthen its international presence and expand its business in the Southern European region.
Bordeaux, the only subsidiary to cover Southern Europe
The new subsidiary in France will be Panorama’s third subsidiary operating outside the United Kingdom. With its headquarters located in Wandsworth, London, Panorama Antennas also has subsidiaries in Brisbane, Australia and Dallas Fort Worth in the United States, as well as a number of regional sales office across the globe.
Recognised for its expertise in design and manufacture of technologically-advanced antennas, Panorama Antennas has 80 employees and 9 international sales offices.
With its new subsidiary in Mérignac, Panorama’s customers will benefit from a direct point of contact, a logistics centre and shorter product lead times.
A Bordeaux location in anticipation of Brexit
While Panorama’s headquarters remains in London along with its design and development teams, Bordeaux – as a logistics hub – will play a key role in the firm’s European expansion.
“Due to increased demand for our products that wehave experienced in recent years, we decided to expand our global presence to better serve our customers and have a presence in France,” said Robert Jesman, Panorama Antennas Sales Director. “We are very pleased with this opportunity to strengthen our position and logistical capabilities in Europeand France in particular offering a local service to this growing market.“
The new subsidiary will be managed by Thierry Vienney.
With over 25 years experience in the telecommunications industry in strategic positions, he aims to make Panorama the undisputed marketleader in the region.
The firm plans to recruit 3 to 5 people over the next 3 years.
Invest in Bordeaux helped the company open its Bordeaux location, by providing it with support for finding office space, identifying administrative partners and providing recruitment consultancy.
