Caps entreprise opens an office in Shanghaï
Caps entreprise opened a bureau in Shanghai on 12th April, to strengthen its presence on the Asian market. The expert in multi-core programming has developed partnerships there with intensive computation offices, universities, research bodies and industrial companies. Benoît Raoult is the Manager of the Shanghai office and he will be joined, over the next few weeks, by a salesman of Chinese origin who is currently being recruited. Another member of staff will also go to Japan during the summer. He will be responsible for training and assisting Japanese juniors in the concept of service (code carrying etc.).
In Europe, the company works with a number of leading European names famous for their efficiency, e.g. CEA and Genci (large national equipment used for intensive calculations for leading clients in the energy, oil, defence and research sectors). The American market has not been forgotten – last January the company won its first contract with a laboratory that is attached the USA’s Department of Energy, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), based in Tennessee.
Set up in 2002 under the aegis of two research laboratories at Inria Rennes and the UVSQ (University of Versailles), the young company in Rennes has been working for the past seven years on the development of tools to make multimode programming easier. It currently employs 30 people in Rennes and intends to recruit a dozen more in another year’s time.
