A growing Milton Keynes company has been praised by government.

AirWatch, in Elder Gate, hosted a visit from Oriel Petry, global accounts director at UK Trade and Investments.

The company is a global innovator in mobile device management based in Atlanta in the United States with its Europe, the Middle East and Africa operations masterminded in Milton Keynes.

John Marshall, AirWatch chief executive, said: “As mobility matures in the region and organisations look to capitalise on the efficiencies that content and application management provide, we are positioned to fully support the direction we see mobility heading in Europe, the Middle East and abroad.”

The Milton Keynes operation has grown from 15 to 100 employees in nine months and is estimating adding 100 more employees by September 2013.

Lord Green, Minister of State for Trade and Investment at the Department for Business Innovation and Skills warmly congratulated AirWatch on its recent growth and further expansion plans in Milton Keynes.

He added: “Such successes are excellent reflections of the strength of the UK’s technology market.”

AirWatch provides product support in more than a dozen native languages for enterprises, retailers, financial institutions, healthcare providers and educators.
