AOpen Headquarter is located at a Software
Business Park at Nan Kang Area, Taipei and it is one of the few hardware

occupying several floors of the block.

A peek at the workplace of the staffs. AOpen
concept of working is like Intel which is based on "Open Concept" where no one
has a private working room to themselves. This way everyone knows each other
well and communication between superiors and colleagues will be enhanced leading
to better productivity.
