TomTom to Open New Research and Development Office in Eindhoven

Office Emphasizes TomTom’s Commitment to Automotive Market and Technology Innovation

Amsterdam, 26 March 2007 - TomTom, the world’s largest navigation solutions provider, today announces it will open a new office in Eindhoven (The Netherlands). The company is accelerating the build-up of its automotive expertise and research and development (R&D) capabilities.

The new office will allow for significant expansion of the existing TomTom R&D teams as TomTom plans to recruit 200 engineers. The focus will be on Java and C++ developers, as well as managers with experience in the automotive industry.

TomTom also intends to acquire a dedicated and experienced automotive team to service car manufacturers and OEMs. The Eindhoven centre will be an addition to TomTom’s existing R&D teams.


“Technological innovation is at the core of everything TomTom does. As Eindhoven is the centre of one of Europe’s largest pools of talent for engineers and software developers, opening an office in this area is a logical step for us,” said Harry van de Kraats, Director Human Resources & Organisation at TomTom. “We look forward to offering bright individuals the chance to join the TomTom team and help us bring the industry’s leading navigation products and services to consumers and car manufacturers worldwide.”
