AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in wireless transport solutions, today announced that it has relocated its corporate headquarters from Milpitas, CA to Austin, TX, a move designed to expand access to a greater talent pool of professionals and drive innovation, while facilitating the Company's anticipated growth over the coming years.
The Company already has a strong presence in Texas, with facilities in Austin and San Antonio. Milpitas will continue to serve as one of the Company's Centers of Excellence, housing the Advanced Technology, Corporate Strategy and Marketing, Technical Accounting Operations, and West Coast Sales and Field Services teams.

We have had more customer site visits in Austin than any of our other North American locations, and this decision should further enhance our already strong relationships with customers and prospects. We see significant avenues to expand in the coming years, and are making the right investments and moves that will lead to a stronger Aviat."
