Quark is opening a new Silicon Valley office in Santa Clara, California.

The centre will host a team of sales, customer support personnel and product developers. The company hopes to use the base to attract top tier talent to its teams.

With the addition of product development capabilities in this new office, Quark is continuing its practice of reinvesting more than 25 per cent of its revenue in software development, which is above industry average.

"We felt a presence in Silicon Valley was essential to facilitate partnerships, be closer to our clients and supplement our existing development team," said Raymond Schiavone, president and CEO, Quark.
