Conjet AB, the leading global manufacturer of Automated Concrete Removal (ACR™) robots, has officially opened its North American headquarters location in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The headquarters, which consists of offices, indoor/outdoor training areas and a large warehouse, will help Conjet achieve its two primary goals of (1) helping customers to be successful on every project, and (2) growing the overall market demand for hydrodemolition services. Specifically, the Charlotte headquarters will offer:
- Large inventory of 7-Series spare parts, available for overnight delivery.
- Training facilities to help customers’ field personnel improve their skills.
- Demonstration facilities to educate asset owners, engineers and other specifiers on hydrodemolition’s benefits and proper techniques.
- Service area for equipment maintenance and repair.
- Corporate offices to house Conjet’s sales, aftersales support and back-office team in North America.
The headquarters is located at the CLT Logistics Park, 3400 International Airport Drive, Suite 100, which is less than ten minutes from the Charlotte International Airport. Stephen Sistrunk, the North American CEO of Conjet Inc., stated,
“The Charlotte location was chosen based on a number of factors, one of the most important being ease of access for our customers. Since our headquarters is located less than 10 minutes from the CLT airport, ranked #4 nationally in direct domestic flights, most of our customers and other industry stakeholders can fly into Charlotte in the morning for demos and training, enjoy a full day of education, and easily be back home in time to sleep in their own bed that evening. We are extremely excited to be able to offer this level of accessibility to the market.”
Daily operations at the Charlotte headquarters will be handled by Andy Antle, who was recently hired to serve as Operations Manager. Prior to joining Conjet, Andy graduated from the College of William and Mary with a degree in Business Analytics. He then went to work for Amazon where he served as Area Manager at their Charlotte distribution facility and was responsible for supervising a team of 80+ and dispatching more than 60,000 packages each day. At the new Conjet headquarters, Andy will oversee order administration, inventory and logistics.
Stephen Sistrunk commented,
“Opening the Charlotte headquarters is a huge step forward for Conjet as we execute on our goals of providing the highest possible level of support to customers and growing the overall market demand for hydrodemolition services. Team Conjet is very happy to finally have a central base of operations in North America where we can meet with our customers face-to-face, provide educational opportunities, and further enhance our level of support. In the near future we will be hosting an open house where we will bring together industry participants, perform equipment demonstrations and offer training on ACR™ techniques and benefits. Stay tuned for more details on our next open house. Until then, please feel free to drop by and visit us in Charlotte any time!”
