Avure Technologies, Franklin, Tenn., announced plans to relocate its global headquarters to Cincinnati. The new facility will house offices and an innovation center complete with new test kitchen, microbiology lab, high-pressure processing (HPP) center and a learning pavilion.

“We’ve made significant strides over the past few years to build upon our leadership in the HPP industry by positioning ourselves to better serve existing and new customers,” says Jeff Williams, chief executive officer. “It started with the development of new service programs designed to ensure customer performance requirements and maintenance goals. Now that we have that in place, as well as our new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility up and running in Middletown, Ohio, we’re proud to announce our plans to locate a new global headquarters in the Cincinnati area.”

 “We are very excited to announce this expansion,” adds Matt Rutherford, senior vice president of business development and global sales. “This will allow us to further support customers as they enter new product categories while working diligently on expanded applications research. This, coupled with our increasing partner network of HPP tolling services providers, will serve as our framework for continued growth.”

Locating the new Avure Innovation Center and headquarters in the Cincinnati area will allow for improved levels of collaboration between the operations, engineering and commercial organizations as well easy access to the company’s manufacturing facility in Middletown.
