CHESIRE, UK—Sherwood Technology has announced intentions to expand into the U.S. market in early 2006. The expansion will see the opening of a new Eastern U.S. headquarters which will support customers and partners in North America. Following the U.S. launch of DataLase at Pack Expo 2004, Sherwood has signed numerous license agreements with international organizations, two of which are based in North America. Trials and evaluations now are being conducted in a range of U.S. industries, including pharmaceutical, fresh produce, bakery, confectionery, beverage and snack sectors.
The new headquarters will function as a sales office, manufacturing, and distribution/warehousing facility offering high levels of service to all U.S.-based customers and license partners. The facility also will house a high-tech applications laboratory to demonstrate the range of possibilities for laser marking, enabling current and potential licenses and end-users to test the final results of using Sherwood’s color change technologies to mark its products using a variety of lasers. Sherwood is recruiting a Vice President and a sales and technical team in order to staff the new facility.
