Mellanox Technologies Ltd has established its third R&D center in Gan Hataasiya Tel-Chai, Israel. The new center joins Mellanox's headquarters in Yokneam and its offices in Ramat Hachayal. The Tel-Chai center will work in cooperation with the Tel-Chai Academic College and offer work to students and graduates in the fields of computer science and electricity.

Mellanox has already hired 15 employees for the new R&D center and expects to hire about 30 additional employees from the Tel-Chai Academic College. As part of its support for educational excellence, Mellanox's employees will give professional lectures to students at the college.

"As an Israeli firm that supports educational excellence, we decided to open our third division in the Galilee in order to support education in Israel. We highly value the need to open hi-tech centers far from the Tel Aviv metropolis. The cooperation, and the close geographic distance to the Tel-Chai Academic College, will allow us to find a professional workforce suitable for our needs. Many of Mellanox's employees started their way in the firm as students and now hold senior positions," said Eyal Waldman chairman, president and CEO of Mellanox.

Arie Dahan, general manager of Ganey Hataasia, Tel-Chai, congratulated Waldman's decision to open the northern R&D center in Tel-Chai instead of overseas and said, "I see this as a Zionist project which strengthens the industry in the Galilee." Dahan added, "The establishment of the R&D center in Tel-Chai is part of Stef Vertheimer's vision to create a strong synergy of academy and industry in Northern Israel."

"We are pleased with the opening of the Northern division of Mellanox," said Danny Kotler, head of the computer science faculty at Tel-Chai Academic College. "I believe that Mellanox will prosper as a result of the cooperation with the computer science faculty and its excellent students."
