Who We Are
Huawei established its North American headquarters in Plano, Texas, in 2001. Today, the company has 14 regional offices in the U.S., including Atlanta, Chicago and San Diego.
We also maintain seven R&D centers developing the next generation of communications technologies, including our flagship research and development (R&D) facility in Santa Clara, California.
Huawei USA today employs about 1,700 professionals and support staff across its U.S. facilities, representing a tenfold growth in our U.S. operations since 2006. More than 75% of those employees are hired locally in the U.S., including key technical leaders, senior managers and executives.
- In 2011, Huawei purchased $6.6 billion from large and small U.S. technology companies, including ADI, Broadcom, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Qualcomm, Micron Technology and Texas Instruments.
- Huawei’s procurements from these major American suppliers indirectly sustain tens of thousands of U.S. jobs in addition to our 1,700 U.S.-based workers.
Huawei Support for U.S. Innovation
In 2011, Huawei USA spent $230 million on local innovation — a 70 percent increase over the previous year’s spending — particularly in cloud computing, information technology, network security and other new technologies.
- Globally, Huawei increased its overall R&D investment to $3.76 billion, a year-on-year increase of 34.2%.
- Huawei sponsors and collaborates with universities across the nation on research and to help create the next generation of American Information Communications Technology (ICT) experts. Last year, we invested more than $10 million to support programs at multiple universities, including Georgia Tech, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC San Diego, UT Austin, UT Dallas, Washington University and Yale University.
