Domain name registrar and Cloud Hosting company Gandi.net, which launched 15 years ago next March, has announced the creation of a new wholly owned subsidiary in Taiwan: Gandi Asia Co. Ltd.
This new subsidiary will enable the company to address the Asian markets, localize its services into Chinese, and enhance the 24-hour support it provides for its international clientele with a local team in Asia.
After opening data centers and hiring local teams to serve U.S. customers in 2010, and again in Luxembourg for European customers outside France in 2013, Gandi has hired developer and tech industry wizard Thomas Kuiper to lead its expansion on the Asian continent.
Taiwan has many advantages for Gandi, including many high-tech industries, a history of rapid growth, and a strong culture of innovation. Kuiper, formerly lead developer at Club Internet (a French ISP), has been a Taiwan resident since 2005. Before joining Gandi, he led development projects for embedded telecommunication systems and medical applications. He is also a longstanding Gandi customer.
The new Gandi Asia customer support team, led by Kuiper, will enhance the teams currently based in Paris, Luxembourg, and San Francisco.
This expansion marks another move in Gandi's global strategy to meet the needs of its international customer base.
While remaining on the same steady trajectory of growth in services and quality it has maintained for many years, Gandi is progressing towards its goal of offering the highest possible quality domain services, innovative hosting, and excellent support.
