COVVI Opens US Base
COVVI has made it to the USA! With our loyal COVVI team across the Atlantic taking care of the logistics, we have been working tirelessly to operationalise a new base in America that will act as our launchpad for international reach. Finally, we have found a beautiful location in San Antonio, Texas in a former oriental rug import business – we are so excited to transform this 7,500 ft2 space into a buzzing hub where sales, manufacture and technical support will all take place.
Our CEO Simon and CTO Ted were keen to make a statement of intent in the direct purchasing of a place rather than renting; so that our stakeholders, customers and everyone else can see that we’re serious in establishing firm roots in the US and want this location to drive us ever forward.
Apart from its very modern and appealing outward appearances, we really like that the building was constructed to be energy efficient, fitting in quite nicely with our sustainability-oriented business-model. After all, keeping overheads down at base allows us to better invest in product innovation and customer services.
We aim to make a start on renovating as soon as possible and will soon thereafter be manned by our already-established US sales and technical support team. Within a matter of months our American clinicians, prospective customers and partners will have a point of contact much closer to home – whether that means a trip to the office itself or a non-international phone call.
We aim to minimize inconvenience with immediate effect as part of our COVVI mission, and our establishing of COVVI HQ in the USA is only a preliminary step in the right direction.
