SAN Valley Systems , an IP-SAN connectivity hardware vendor, announced the relocation of its global headquarters from Campbell to San Jose. The two-story building, located at 6320 San Ignacio Avenue in San Jose, will serve as the company's global headquarters for SAN Valley's expanding infrastructure and North American and European sales forces.
As part of the company's expansion, SAN Valley also has opened an office in the United Kingdom that provides a base for sales support operations in Europe. This office is located in Marlow, England.
"People still assume that Europe lags the U.S. in technology implementations, but it isn't true any longer," inserted Steve Duplessie of the Enterprise Storage Group. "We see huge growth of storage networking technologies in Europe over the next two years, that may even surpass the U.S. There are more complex SANs in Europe than we can find here in the States."
Elaborating on the company's formal step into global markets, President and CEO Bob Coackley said, "One of our true keys to success is the caliber of folks we hired for European sales support. They've worked in the storage industry for years and represent the level of professionalism and dedication that's so important to SAN Valley and its customers. They hit the ground running, so to speak, and are already working with leading channel partners in multiple countries. We expect to see results quickly as demand continues to grow."
Coackley added, "Our planned relocation into this building is on track with our growth plan and is another example of our growing momentum in the IT community. Simply put, the new headquarters provides for expansion and brings us together in a way that will maximize productivity and allows us to be more responsive to our customers and partners."
He further noted the new office in Europe is the first of several intended expansions in the international networking community.
