Drawn to Windsor-Essex by its automotive and logistics sector, a Burlington-based company is moving its headquarters here.

Vehiquilla Inc. also liked the talent coming out of St. Clair College and the University of Windsor. Add that with Canada’s largest, publicly accessible Virtual Reality CAVE, and the company could not resist.

The company plans to conduct its hiring in phases. It will start with a business development specialist, six researchers, five security analysts, and senior technical staff.

Vehiquilla was founded in 2017. The headquarters in Windsor-Essex will provide consulting services, technical support, and training.

“Vehiquilla was founded to meet the cybersecurity challenges of today and tomorrow’s connected and autonomous vehicles,” said A.J. Kahn, the company’s CEO.
