The Scotsman - - Business - By HAN­NAH BUR­LEY

Flicq, a Cal­i­for­nia-head­quar­tered tech com­pany, has launched a sub­sidiary in Aberdeen to ex­pand its Eu­ro­pean growth.

It is the in­dus­trial in­ter­net of things (IIOT) provider’s first of­fice this side of the At­lantic, which will al­low the firm to bet­ter serve its clients in Europe.

Flicq cre­ates re­mote sens­ing plat­forms to im­prove oper­at­ing ef­fi­ciency in oil and gas, min­ing and trans­porta­tion sys­tems.

Roddy Urquhart, a veteran of the elec­tron­ics in­dus­try, will join Flicq UK as man­ag­ing direc­tor.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Karthik Rau said: “Hav­ing al­ready seen strong in­ter­est for our re­mote sens­ing so­lu­tion in the oil and gas sec­tor, Aberdeen was a log­i­cal lo­ca­tion for our of­fice.”
