We've been busy here at Gtech USA, not only working hard to provide the best-loved vacuum in America, but also moving to our new US headquarters in the funky little hamlet of Paulus Hook in Jersey City, New Jersey!
We are so excited to start working from our new office space, just a stone's throw from the Big Apple. In fact, we have a beautiful view of the new World Trade Center, right down the street, across the mighty Hudson River.
This will now be the new hub of our operations. We are homegrown at our US base of operations. And, hey, we're from 'Jersey... what more could you ask for? (oh yeah, and in answer to your next question, its exit 14C).
For those who don't know, Paulus Hook in Jersey City, which is just across from downtown Manhattan, is a city on the move. There's a great history here; it's on the National Register of Historic Places for its pivotal role in the American Revolution (google Battle of Paulus Hook), and in the last decade a burgeoning arts district and major redevelopment has brought in new businesses, young urban professionals, families, fantastic cafes and shops to explore. It's a great place to visit!
What's more, this area of Jersey City is just a stone's throw from our Lady Liberty and Ellis Island.. where so many people came to the New World to find their success in America. For thousands of immigrants, their first steps in the New World were taken here. So it seems quite appropriate that Gtech USA should land here... seeking to bring the same success we've had across the pond (where are the fastest growing vacuum brand in the UK in 2013*) to the US! Our goal is to bring that same love of vacuuming to millions of people across America.
But to really understand the beauty of this area, you have to see it. So we put together a little tour of our new digs, the local landmarks and the amazing views. Check out our photos here on our Facebook page and there's plenty more to come as we welcome new team members to our Gtech USA team. And while you're there, please be sure to "like" our page so we can keep you up to date on all the Gtech happenings.
