Trimble has changed its headquarters from Sunnyvale, California, to Westminster, Colorado.
Westminster is Trimble’s largest employment center in the U.S. and serves as a central business hub for several of its core market segments, according to the company. It also houses the CEO, CFO, a number of its senior business leaders, and more than 1,000 employees.
“Colorado has proven to be a strategic location in our U.S. operations since we opened our initial Westminster office in 2000,” said Rob Painter, president/CEO, in a prepared statement. “The area attracts a desirable, diverse and growing pool of tech talent and provides an attractive quality of life for our employees.”
The Sunnyvale location has been designated as the Silicon Valley Center for Innovation and Operations. Core business functions there include engineering, legal, operations and sustainability, corporate accounting, and tax.
No other changes are associated with the new headquarters designation.
“Sunnyvale will continue to be the center for technology development across a range of areas critical to Trimble’s success going forward,” Painter said. “Our presence is strategically important for the company. In addition, the Silicon Valley talent pool plays an important role in recruiting experienced high-tech employees for our local operations.”
The headquarters change will have no material impact on Trimble management, employees, or customers, according to the company.
