For immediate release
Munich, 28.04.2021 - WALKOLUTION GmbH Germany announced the opening of a subsidiary company in the USA (Walkolution USA, Inc.) as part of its global expansion.
"The decision to expand into the United States with our own subsidiary was a logical step as part of our rapid global expansion. We have received an increasing number of orders from the USA over the last twelve months. With the creation of a local presence, we will be able to serve our customers in the U.S. with the same fast delivery times as in Europe and eliminate the previously high shipping costs" said Dr. Eric Soehngen, CEO, Walkolution GmbH. "Some of the world's most forward thinking companies in employee health are based in the U.S. and we look forward to serving our business and private customers in the U.S. with our own team in the U.S. in the future.“
WALKOLUTION will be supported in its expansion by the German Accelerator, which is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and has already assisted well-known German companies, such as N26, in their global expansion.
