China Unicom, China’s second-largest mobile carrier, opened a new Toronto office to support its global operations, The Globe and Mail reported Wednesday. The company—which previously had North American offices in San Jose and Los Angeles, Calif., as well as in Hendron, Va., and Iselin, N.J.—opened its new Toronto office following a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday, the Globe reported. In an undated newsletter distributed through the company’s North American subsidiary China Unicom (Americas) Operations Ltd., the company said it was the “final stages” of opening the new Toronto office at the end of its second quarter 2012. “Our new Toronto PoP further expands our global network delivery capabilities, while demonstrating China Unicom’s commitment to continually invest in our worldwide network with the purpose of meeting our client’s expectations,” the newsletter said. In a 2012 first quarter earnings report, China Unicom reported it had 209.5 million mobile subscribers as of March 31, and that it recorded 61.2 billion yuan ($9.45 billion) in revenues during the first three months of the year. The company reported one billion yuan ($155 million) in profits during the same period. Its new office will “provide network backbone support to help Canadian telcos connect to China, while also providing telecom services to Canadian companies expanding to China and to Chinese businesses establishing operations in Canada,” the Globe reported.
