Truphone, which operates a global wireless network as well as a calling and messaging app, today announced that its global technology engineering center here has joined the New Jersey Technology Council.
The council provides business support, networking opportunities, information, advocacy and recognition to members in advancing New Jersey’s status as a leading technology center in the United States.
Even though Truphone operates its U.S. Headquarters in Durham, North Carolina, it also established a technology engineering base at the New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Enterprise Development Center in 2012 to support expansion of company operations in the U.S. The company also opened offices in San Francisco and a sales hub in in 2013 as part of its expansion efforts.
The center employs a dozen high tech and engineering professionals. Membership to the New Jersey Technology Council will give Truphone access to New Jersey’s diverse talent pool and resources, which will the company believes will allow it to “continue to innovate and grow.”
“When you consider what the council has been doing in the Garden State since 1996, and its member companies, joining NJTC is a natural fit for Truphone,” said Chris Celiberti, Truphone’s Vice President of Business Engineering.
The company will be offering the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to customers starting September 26.
