Material handling solutions provider Cimcorp Group said it has launched a U.S. executive operation by opening a sales, applications, engineering, and customer service and support office in Norcross, Ga., a suburb northeast of Atlanta.
The operation will open sometime in June or July, according to Rick Trigatti, president of North America, Cimcorp. The company's North American headquarters is in Grimsby, Ontario, a suburb of Toronto. Its global headquarters is in Finland.
Trigatti said the company, which generates about 99 percent of its business in the U.S., felt it needed to extend its corporate reach in the country. It chose Atlanta because it is considered the hub of the U.S. Southeast, as 90 percent of its customers are based in the region and a number of its competitors are located there, Trigatti said.
