Area Development Online News Desk (12/06/2013)
ZIVELO, a kiosk and digital signage manufacturing company, will move its corporate headquarters to Scottsdale, Arizona. The five-year-old company plans to add at least 70 jobs in the Phoenix metro market, when it moves into a 13,000-square-foot space at Fashion Square Mall this January.
“The decision to relocate ZIVELO’s headquarters to Scottsdale has been in the works for some time now and we’re very happy that we’re finally able to make the official announcement,” says Ziver Birg, CEO of ZIVELO. “While I’ve lived all over the country, Scottsdale has always been my home. The City of Scottsdale, the Greater Phoenix Economic Council and the Arizona Commerce Authority have welcomed us with open arms. Our experience with them has been nothing less than first class.” ZIVELO has additional presence in Los Angeles, Denver and Philadelphia, with its manufacturing headquarters located in Marion, Indiana.
“Downtown Scottsdale has seen significant interest from entrepreneurial technology companies in recent years, due to its appeal to young professionals seeking an urban environment with easy access to entertainment, employment and housing,” the Arizona Commerce Authority said.
“Downtown Scottsdale has emerged as the premier place for tech companies looking for a unique work environment,” said Scottsdale Mayor W.J. “Jim” Lane. “It is exciting to see a company like ZIVELO choose a nontraditional space in the downtown area and we could not be more excited to welcome them.”
“Scottsdale continues to attract global brands and top innovators seeking a platform to expand their operations to new markets, and its leadership has distinguished the city as a world-class environment for business growth,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO, Arizona Commerce Authority. “ZIVELO’s expansion echoes a larger trend of technology-driven companies choosing Arizona – from innovative startups to industry icons – that are expanding here to leverage our state’s competitive cost of doing business, proximity to some of the world’s top economies, as well as its highly skilled and available tech talent to help propel their corporate success.”
“Scottsdale’s quality of life, outstanding culture and young talent were all extremely conducive to what ZIVELO was looking for in a location,” GPEC President and CEO Barry Broome said. “ZIVELO’s decision to expand to Scottsdale is a testament to the hard work of Mayor Lane, his entire economic development team, and Macerich, who found a great office space for the company. I have no doubt ZIVELO will greatly contribute to Scottsdale’s well-deserved reputation for being a magnet for startups and fast-growing technology companies.”
