Bovone, an Italian manufacturer of solutions and technologies for the secondary processing of flat glass, will open a new branch in the U.S. to serve the North American markets. The branch will open in 2020. 

"We are excited about this new venture," says Federica Bovone, sales manager at Bovone. "Bovone has been successfully selling its machines in the U.S. for 45 years and the time has come that we expand into this market with a physical location so we can continue to effectively and efficiently meet the demands of our loyal customer base. Thanks to all who made this project possible and a special thank you to the local economic development organizations and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina who helped us navigate this complex process."

The new headquarters is a strategic decision aimed to answer market demand, in synergy with Bovone’s technology distributor in the area, Salem Distributing Co., say officials. The facility will be located in North Carolina, due to the region’s reputation as a leading sector for glass.

The company has finalized the purchase of the building, with spaces that will be divided and organized to accommodate commercial offices, a spare parts warehouse and a mechanical workshop for overhauls.The company reports that the networking initiated during the due diligence phases of this intense site location process generated numerous relationships with main universities in the state, that are critical for the training and skills needed for the recruitment of motivated and competent employees.

With this new location, Bovone will be able to guarantee faster response times and even more efficient sales support as the company will be investing in sales support activities that align with the demand for quick, accurate answers to the questions its customers, say officials.
