“Over the next five years, we expect to continue to grow our business tremendously in Israel and will benefit significantly by being able to leverage the academic network and the talented engineers in the region.” – Dr. Orna Berry, vice president and general manager of EMC Israel COE.

EMC Corporation, one of the world’s leading companies in information infrastructure solutions, is strengthening its investment and presence in Israel through the launch of a new research & development Center in the southern Israeli city of Beer Sheva.

The new facility will be located in the Beer Sheva High-Tech Park, directly adjacent to Ben-Gurion University (BGU) and SCE, the College of Engineering, which will enable the company to work with the country’s leading young technologists.

EMC’s new facility in the Negev will also benefit from the Israeli government’s incentives for multinational companies which open up facilities in peripheral areas of Israel. These incentives are designed to encourage investment and boost technological, economic and academic growth and cooperation throughout Israel.
