CLEVELAND, Ohio, January 6, 2020 – Surgere, Inc., developers of visibility, control, and analytics software utilizing AI technology, has announced plans to expand its operations in the city of Green. The expansion is expected to result in 93 new jobs in Northeast Ohio.
The company’s software supports a community of OEMs and suppliers – all working together in a single solution to track assets through each segment of the supply chain. Due to their highly technical and scientific approach to the use of IoT sensors, Surgere has experienced hyper-growth over the past two years – making their expansion necessary.
“Our growth required us to evaluate a move, but more than just a move to a larger building. We needed to locate in an area that provides access to an educated and performance-driven pool of talent. We needed access to world-class universities. We needed a community that embraces diversity and cultural inclusion. And, we wanted a location that affords families with a high standard of living on a reasonable cost basis. Simply stated, if our families are happy and thriving in their community, we will thrive as a business,” said President and CEO of Surgere, William Wappler. “Certainly, the City of Green and this area of Ohio provides everything we need to succeed and continue to grow. We greatly appreciate everyone’s support during our move and look forward to our continued expansion in the community.”
A team of the City of Green, Summit County, Greater Akron Chamber, JobsOhio and Team NEO worked with the company to ensure the company expanded in Green, where the company has its roots. Members of the economic development team share their insights:
