US mobile phone group Motorola has acquired BenQ's development centre with 250 engineers in northern Jutland, Denmark, for an undisclosed sum. Taiwan's BenQ took over the former Siemens centre last year, when it acquired Siemens' entire mobile phone business activities. BenQ has since closed several centres in Germany and is now centralising development in Munich.

Bo Wassberg, director of Motorola Denmark is highly satisfied with the acquisition: "Motorola has an ambition to stay ahead in the development of mobile phones, and we are proud to get such capable people into our company," he says. With the 250 engineers in Nørresundby, northern Jutland, Motorola will have more than 500 development staff in Denmark. In Glostrup close to Copenhagen, Motorola has 300 people employed, of whom 200 are developing Tetra technology for world-wide use.

"The department in northern Jutland will be part of developing the latest mobile phones from Motorola, and Denmark will be a central part of the global development," says Bo Wassberg. According to the director, the Nørresundby facility has strong capabilities in developing mobile phones, and especially applications and antenna technologies. The news was reported by national daily newspaper Berlingske Tidende and Computerworld.
