German Bohle America Selects Charlotte, North Carolina, for Facility

Bohle America, subsidiary of a German company, has opened a U.S. sales, distribution, and service site in Charlotte, North Carolina. The company produces glass cutting tools and machines. It currently has six employees in Charlotte.

"One of our basic principles that we have long been pursuing is: Bohle is wherever the customer needs us. The USA is one of our largest markets overseas. We have taken this step to be closer to existing customers and, of course, to win new customers," said Arne Klöfkorn, COO of Bohle AG and president of Bohle America.

Bohle has leased a 10,000-square-foot facility in the Granite Commerce Center. Charlotte's central location and advantageous time difference with Germany attracted the company to the location.

"There are also many German firms located in and around Charlotte, and the cosmopolitan work force allows access to a wide range of skilled candidates for employment," said Gareth Francey, Bohle America's vice president of sales.
