Averna tackles new market in Silicon Valley with innovative product-testing software

    MONTREAL, Oct. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Canadian-based Averna today announced
the opening of a branch in Palo Alto, California, an economic focal point of
Silicon Valley, to keep up with growing demand for its test engineering
services and for Proligent(TM), a software solution that electronics
manufacturers use to simplify and accelerate product testing.
    Fortune 1000 companies such as Nortel, Harris Stratex, and Olympus rely
on Averna for innovative test solutions. The Palo Alto branch will give Averna
better positioning to target other telecommunications and high-tech
electronics giants, and to support existing clients in the area.
    "Silicon Valley represents a key axis for our continued growth as we
define the enterprise test software market space," said Pascal Pilon,
president and CEO of Averna. "The new product introduction cycle is
accelerating every year. By opening a branch in Palo Alto, we are re-affirming
our commitment to help area companies initiate test engineering early in the
cycle, so they can launch products on time and remain competitive."
    The Palo Alto branch joins offices in Toronto and Ottawa as part of an
expanding network that reports to Montreal headquarters at the renowned
Multimedia City complex. Averna has grown by 256% over the past five years,
and staff has doubled in the past year alone. The company received its
ISO 9001: 2000 certification in 2002, and won a Frost & Sullivan Excellence in
Technology award in 2005.
    "This strategic move is a solidifying step in Averna's plan to dominate
the North American test engineering market," said Richard Maltais, vice
president of sales and marketing at Averna. "We will always be proud to have
started in Canada."
    The company is incorporated as Averna Technologies in Canada, and as
Averna Corp. in the United States. Mathieu Allard, having lead business
development to new heights for Averna since 2006, has been appointed general
manager, California.
