Icomera, a subsidiary of ENGIE Solutions and the world’s leading provider of mobile Internet connectivity and application platforms for public transport, has opened its new office in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. ENGIE Solutions is part of ENGIE, a leading group involved in the transition over to a zero-carbon world.
Established in Gothenburg in 1999, Icomera is one of Sweden’s fastest growing technology companies and has been operating in North America since 2014, recently moving to new headquarters in Bethesda.
Historically, Icomera has largely been supporting its Canadian operations from its US headquarters. Now, as part of Icomera and its parent company ENGIE’s ambition to be ever closer to their clients, a heavily expanded and dedicated Canadian team will field the rapidly evolving requirements of operators in the region.
The office will initially function as the project office for providing end-to-end Wi-Fi to GO Transit (Metrolinx) as well as several other notable transportation operators based in Canada. GO Transit, the transportation authority serving the province of Ontario, awarded the Wi-Fi contract to Icomera in September 2019.
Magnus Friberg, Icomera’s SVP for the Americas, commented: “The opening of our new facilities in Canada marks a significant milestone in Icomera’s growth story. Continuing and expanding our relationship with Metrolinx and other key clients in the region such as Autobus Maheux, Greyhound, Orleans Express, Pacific Western Transportation and Volvo Prevost, will be the primary focus of the team as we support the projects of our digital partners.”
Icomera is the world’s leading provider of wireless Internet connectivity for public transport, committed to promoting green mobility. Serving millions of Wi-Fi users worldwide, our award-winning technology makes public transport a better, safer, more attractive option for passengers, supporting our mission to help contribute to a reduction in carbon emissions of 3.5 million metric tons by 2022. A wholly-owned subsidiary of ENGIE Solutions, Icomera is headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, with offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Italy.
