VERMOP Salmon GmbH Chooses Charlotte for U.S. Operation
VERMOP Salmon GmbH, a privately held German manufacturer of innovative and high quality professional cleaning equipment, announced today the opening of its first U.S. subsidiary.
VERMOP USA Inc. recently leased 27,760 square feet in Whitehall Executive Business Park in southwest Charlotte. Adam Eason of Trinity Partners represented the company in its building search and lease negotiations. The landlord was represented by Billy Thomas of Merrifield Patrick Vermillion.
The new Charlotte operation positions VERMOP to enter the $24 billion U.S. janitorial supply market. VERMOP USA expects to hire eight employees by the end of this year and continue hiring in 2013 as the company’s business grows.
“We are excited about our new U.S. subsidiary, which will provide us the opportunity to efficiently supply customers in both the United States and Canada with our best-in-class professional cleaning systems,” said Dirk Salmon, managing director of VERMOP Salmon GmbH. “We are committed to successfully entering the U.S. market and look forward to many years of growth,” he added.
The Charlotte Chamber first established contact with VERMOP Salmon GmbH in 2004 and assisted the company during its recent site selection process and with the establishment of VERMOP USA.

The company is also represented in 14 European countries, including Russia.
