The SMART Board 600i interactive whiteboard system.
Advanced Inc. technology partner SMART Technologies has announced that the one millionth SMART Board interactive whiteboard has now rolled off the company’s Ottawa production line. They are the first interactive whiteboard manufacturer to reach this significant milestone selling about 70 percent more interactive whiteboards than its closest competitor over the last 17 years.
Assembled in a state-of-the-art, 24,155 square meter (260,000 square foot) facility in Ottawa, Ontario, the company has steadily expanded its operations to meet increasing global demand for its wide range of popular education, training and collaboration products.
SMART’s co-founder and executive chairman, David Martin, commented, “Since we first conceptualized the interactive whiteboard, we saw the potential for the product in numerous teaching, learning and collaboration environments”. He added, “It’s rewarding to know that a growing number of customers have come to appreciate the product’s benefits, and we’re very pleased to have reached this milestone as a Canadian-based company with global reach.”
SMART also acknowledges the strong contributions its suppliers have made in reaching this notable milestone. To that effect, Advanced Inc. is committed to maintaining its strong business relationship with SMART in order to continue providing our customers with a top brand range of leading products backed up by first class support.
Advanced Inc. are extremely proud to be closely associated with a true global leader and innovator and look forward to playing a significant role in helping the next million interactive whiteboards roll off the production line and into the marketplace.
