Kinaxis, a Canada-Based Supply Chain Tech Platform, Opens Las Colinas Office

Kinaxis said its new North Texas office will serve as a centralized hub where employees and customers can come together to engage, collaborate, and work towards solving some of the biggest challenges facing global supply chains. The company serves more than 40,000 users in over 100 countries worldwide.

From its base in Ottawa, Canada, Kinaxis aims to deliver the agility needed to absorb today’s supply chain disruptions. It does that by building AI-driven supply chain management software—and a new office in North Texas is about to support its mission.

Kinaxis has opened a new office in Irving’s Las Colinas development that will help serve its expanding U.S. customer base as it seeks to position itself for future growth, the company announced.

“Dallas is recognized as a growing, centrally located region for technical and supply chain management talent,” Megan Paterson, COO at Kinaxis, said in a statement. “Establishing a permanent hub in the U.S. is a critical part of our global footprint as businesses continue to adopt Kinaxis to manage supply chains in an increasingly complex environment.”

Kinaxis has a well-established team, and says its new office will serve as a centralized hub where employees and customers can come together to engage, collaborate, and work towards solving some of the biggest challenges facing global supply chains, the company said.

North Texas expansion follows new Kinaxis office openings in the U.K., the Netherlands, India, Singapore, and Japan

Kinaxis said the opening culminates a period of significant growth and expansion for the company globally, following the addition of offices in the U.K., the Netherlands, India, Singapore, and Japan, among others.

Lockheed Martin is just one of the Dallas-Fort Worth-area companies that uses Kinaxis solutions to help them prepare for and respond to disruptions to their vast supply chains, the company said.

With more than 40,000 users in over 100 countries, Kinaxis works with some of the world’s biggest brands in sectors such as CPG, automotive, high tech, life sciences and more.

The company said that its AI-powered technology and patented concurrency technique allows companies to orchestrate their supply chain networks end-to-end from strategic planning to last-mile delivery.

Its technology helps supply the agricultural industry with 40% of the world’s tractors, helps keep more than 110,000,000,000 teeth clean each year, and ensures more than 35 million pets are fed nutritious meals each year, the company said.
