Last week at the Mansion House, XJTAG announced the opening of its first overseas office in Waltham, Massachusetts, USA. Massachusetts Governor, Deval Patrick, congratulated XJTAG CEO, Simon Payne on the company’s investment.

The City of London hosted last week's networking reception to mark the Governor's visit. Governor Patrick was visiting the UK as part of his Massachusetts Innovation Economy Partnership Mission 2011.

"This is a significant step for XJTAG. It will be the first office XJTAG has opened outside of the UK," said Simon Payne CEO, XJTAG. “We have long-term plans to grow our US business. Massachusetts is the ideal location for us with excellent transport links, both nationally and internationally and boasts a significant cluster of high-tech businesses and technology graduates.

"Currently enjoying an annual growth of over 40%, XJTAG is delighted to increase its presence in the US with a new office in Massachusetts. This will help us develop and support our growing client base."

Massachusetts and the UK are key partners across technology, business, research and innovation. Governor Patrick is seeking to extend the commercial links between the UK and Massachusetts in these areas.

Governor Patrick said, "We are delighted to hear of XJTAG’s plans to open an office in Massachusetts. The Commonwealth is a world leader in hosting the industries of tomorrow and the home of a growing innovation economy."

XJTAG, a Cambridge-based company, will join the 225 UK-owned companies in Massachusetts, which currently employ 40,100 state residents. Both Massachusetts and the UK boast thriving technology, life sciences and clean energy economies.

XJTAG's client base includes ARM, Aeroflex, Advanced Relay Corportion, Curtiss-Wright, Diagnosys, QSI Corporation, Imagination Technologies, Rheinmetall Air Defence Group, Thales and many others.
