December 15, 2014 – Richmond, BC, Canada – Point Grey, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of innovative, high-performance digital cameras, today announced the hiring of its 200th employee, marking another important milestone in the company’s growth.

“Reaching 200 full-time employees is a significant achievement for Point Grey and something we are all very proud of,” says Rod Barman, President and one of the original founders at Point Grey. “It has been an amazing journey to see our company grow over the years from a tiny office in 1997 to an international organization with offices, distributors, and customers located around the world. In 2013 we expanded our Canadian headquarters based in Richmond, British Columbia, to meet the growing demand for our extensive product portfolio worldwide and to lay the foundation for continued growth in the future.”
