COPA-DATA UK relocates to Welsh capital: City space for industrial software company

European automation expert, COPA-DATA has relocated its UK headquarters to Cardiff, Wales, to facilitate the company’s projected growth, improve the work-life balance for its current and future employees and foster the fast-paced creative culture of the city.

COPA-DATA UK’s move to the Welsh capital will provide the company with more space to expand. The new office is based in the heart of the city and will provide COPA-DATA UK with greater opportunities on its doorstep, for new business, new partnerships and collaborations, and for recruiting the expanding team.


The move to Cardiff coincides with ten years of COPA-DATA’s presence in the UK manufacturing and utility industries. In the same year COPA-DATA celebrates its 30-year anniversary of the company being founded in 1987 by Thomas Punzenberger in Austria.


“Cardiff has always had a special place in my heart, having lived and studied here,” explained Martyn Williams, Managing Director of COPA-DATA UK. “It’s incredible to see how the city has experienced major transformation in recent years and is fast becoming a hub for digital and technology industries.


“The new office space provides us with room to expand the team as the business continues to grow and, being situated in the heart of the city, the space provides the team and clients alike with an easily accessible, vibrant and dynamic environment to conduct business.”


COPA-DATA’s headquarters are based in Austria, but the company sales its software in over 60 countries. COPA-DATA’s UK office handles all sales and services of the company’s software system, zenon, in the UK and Ireland.
