Ikotek USA, Inc., one of the leading ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) manufacturers of IoT (Internet of Things) devices and EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Services) service providers from the United States of America, has announced its presence in Belgrade, and as part of its commitment to global market growth and expansion.
This strategic decision strengthens Ikotek’s position as a significant player in the technology industry, while expanding its ability to provide inventive solutions to clients worldwide. In addition, Ikotek has strengthened its EMEA management team by bringing in Vladimir Rakić as Director of Research and Development in the EMEA region, and Jura Gantar as Director of Sales.
The goal of the presence in Serbia is to increase Ikotek’s ability to help European clients by providing them with stronger support in the areas of design, development and consulting for IoT solutions.
