TeamViewer has been bolstering its industrial augmented-reality and Internet of Things capabilities via acquisitions and aims to target customers in the manufacturing field.

German remote desktop and access provider TeamViewer is set to create 100 job sat a new Atlanta office over the next four years at a new sales and business development office.  

Based in Göppingen, which sits in the Stuttgart region of the state of  Badem-Wurttemberg, the cloud-based IT solutions provider already counts major clients in the metro Atlanta area and hopes to branch out to additional customers with its new location. Its North American base is in Tampa.  

Finn Faldi, president of TeamViewer Americas, said the company has been growing both organically and by acquisition in the region. Recent buys include Upskill, which provides augmented reality workflow capabilities for factory workers, and Ubimax, a German firm with similar capabilities.  

“As a business and industrial hub of the South, Atlanta is a great location for TeamViewer and our new office will help us better serve current and new enterprise software customers throughout North America,” Mr. Faldi said in a Georgia Department of Economic Development news release.  

The company is working to narrow down office locations in the metro area.

Katie Kirkpatrick, president and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber, said in the release that the city offers TeamViewer a growing tech hub and a strong contingent of international firms. 

“Here, they will find a robust community of German businesses like Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, SAP, and many others, along with a deep pool of skilled technology workers,” she said.  

The Georgia economic development department’s office in the United Kingdom and its European office in Munich worked on the project.
