Gleeds opens new US operation in Silicon Valley

Gleeds is pleased to announce the opening of its fifth office in the United States (U.S.) as part of its global expansion plan. The new operation, based in Silicon Valley, joins the business’ existing offices in Atlanta, Chicago, San Francisco and New York.

The addition of another West Coast office will allow the organisation to broaden its reach and expand its range of clients to include more companies from the technology industry. To support the move, Gleeds intends to appoint a number of local staff with particular expertise in the digital technologies sector.

The office will not only be responsible for managing the construction of projects, but will also take on the role of programme manager for global technology companies, managing portfolio and project life cycles, including operational management.

“Silicon Valley is the biggest high-tech manufacturing centre in the country,” said Chris Soffe, President and CEO of Gleeds America. “As well as strengthening our U.S. operation, this office will help give us a unique insight and depth of understanding of the market, which can only be reached by becoming part of the Silicon Valley community.”

Richard Steer, Chairman of Gleeds Worldwide, added: “It is great to see continued growth in the U.S. after a long recession. As an independent consultancy with a growing global footprint, we see this as a really positive move and look forward to seizing further expansion opportunities both in the United States and worldwide.”

Gleeds’ new Silicon Valley office is located at 800 W El Camino Real, Suite 180, Mountain View, CA 94040.
