MELBOURNE, FL. and DUBAI: Harris Corporation has expanded their headquarters in Dubai Media City, United Arab Emirates to meet the needs of growing business in the Middle East and South Asia region.

“Harris first established its Middle East Broadcast operations in Dubai in 2006, and has seen its annual business grow exponentially across the region,” said Harris Morris, president of Harris Broadcast Communications, in a press release. “Expanding our presence enables us to develop closer relationships with customers and engineering teams, ensuring faster local service and support and helping customers optimize their successes.”
