Westminster is Trimble’s largest employment center in the U.S. and serves as a central business hub for several of Trimble’s core market segments including agriculture, construction and geospatial. In addition, Trimble’s CEO, CFO, a number of its senior business leaders, and more than 1,000 employees are located in Westminster.
“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, Trimble’s president and CEO. “The area attracts a desirable, diverse and growing pool of tech talent and provides an attractive quality of life for our employees.”
Trimble’s Sunnyvale presence in Silicon Valley is linked to the company’s rich history and has been a center of innovation since Trimble was founded in 1978. Sunnyvale will continue to be a strategic hub for Trimble and has been designated as the Silicon Valley Center for Innovation and Operations. Trimble’s Sunnyvale core business functions 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. Our presence is strategically important for the company,” said Painter. “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.
