WINNIPEG, MAN. – DMT Development Systems Group is expanding its headquarters with a new testing laboratory and new office space it says will help “improve productivity and enhance innovation.”
The new 3,500-square foot space in the University of Manitoba SMARTPARK facility will accommodate up to an additional 15 employees when it is completed in June.
The new space will house the testing laboratory, which tests and refines new products on a wide variety of commercial computer software and hardware before the products are released for sale.
It is the first expansion on this site since DMT relocated to the current building in 2005. Earlier this year, the company opened a Toronto office and in 2010 introduced a new office in Paris.
“The auto industry is enjoying a welcome recovery in North America and continues to be strong in markets like China, while markets like Europe are in challenging times,” says DMT president Glen Demetrioff.
“Wherever they’re located, auto manufacturers and their dealers need new management tools to help them market more effectively when times are good and to help save resources when things are lean. That means demand for our products has steadily expanded and we need to expand to meet that demand.”
