Italian flat glass manufacturer Bovone will open a new branch in North Carolina in the United States in 2020 intended to serve the North American markets.

The new headquarters is a strategic decision aimed to answer market demand, in synergy with Bovone’s technology distributor in the area, Salem Distributing Company.

The new headquarters will consolidate the presence of the brand in a market that, year after year, continues to value made in Italy technologies.

The company has finalised the purchase of the building whose spaces will be divided and will be organised to accommodate commercial offices, a spare parts warehouse and a mechanical workshop for overhauls.

The new headquarters, which will be 100% operational from 2020 onwards, will be strategically located to best serve Bovone customers from a logistics perspective.

"We are excited about this new venture," said Federica Bovone, Sales Manager for Bovone.

"Bovone has been successfully selling its machines in the US for 45 years.

“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 organisations and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina who helped us navigate this complex process."
