Glasgow tech firm opens new US HQ in Florida

Glasgow-based Systal Technology Solutions has opened a new US HQ and Network Operations Centre in Florida.

The network and security services specialist now has a presence in 9 countries, with the latest “cutting-edge” facility in Tampa.

Described as a milestone in its growth trajectory and global expansion, the office will support its existing US customer base and meet rising market demand in North America  for managed network, cloud and cybersecurity services.

“Expanding our base of operations in the US is pivotal to delivering our high-value services within the country”, said Neil Nicolson, CEO of Systal. 

“Systal’s strategy is to buck the trend of the ‘low-cost offshore model’ adopted by many organisations to deliver services within the US marketplace, Systal will drive best-in-class services with the best people, in country. This is at the core of our delivery model and our scaling presence in the US will only further our capability.”

The facility will be staffed by engineers and is situated in the centre of Tampa’s Westshore District.

“This is our first entry locally in Tampa, we will scale our operations significantly over the coming years,” continued Nicolson.

“In Tampa Bay, we are tapping into an exciting region with world-class IT talent, outstanding universities and a rapidly growing technology community that complements Systal’s ambitions. The support and engagement from the Mayor right through to the wider Tampa business community is the reason we are committing now and long term to Tampa. We are incredibly excited and ambitious to become part of the local fabric and really scale Tampa as our US HQ.”

Jane Castor, Mayor of the City of Tampa, added: 

“Tampa’s rise as one of the fastest-growing tech hubs for talent continues to attract leading cybersecurity companies from around the globe. It was a pleasure to meet the Systal team during their site visit and I am thrilled they have chosen Tampa for its US headquarters. I am confident they will find the high-quality talent, collaborative community, and supportive ecosystem they need to continue to grow.”
