Finland-based Varjo opens its first US office in Arlington, Virginia.
The technology leader in industrial-grade VR/XR headsets, today announced the opening of its US headquarters in the Washington D.C. area. The company, which is celebrating three years of business this month, has seen unprecedented momentum to date in the industrial virtual reality space having brought to market the industry’s only human-eye resolution headset (Varjo VR-1), launched a reseller program for local, on-the-ground customer support of its VR-1 device and announced several integrations with leading software partners in the design, training and simulation and research ecosystems.
As the company continues to grow, the United States represents an increasingly important target market for Varjo. Beyond establishing its US headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, located just outside of Washington D.C., Varjo also today announced the continued expansion of its recently launched reseller program. Two additional US resellers – GC Micro and FoxGuard Solutions – have joined the network and this expansion, coupled with the newly open US office, ensures Varjo is better able to actively reach and support customers and partners across North America, while also maintaining ideal communication with the home office in Helsinki, Finland.
“2019 has been an exciting year for us so far with the announcements of our first two products – the Varjo VR-1 and Varjo XR-1 Developer Edition – among other key milestones, and this is just the beginning,” said Timo Toikkanen, president and COO of Varjo.
“As we continue to expand our global footprint, through new offices, additional reseller partners and entrance into new sales markets, we look forward to delivering the innovative solutions and local support our enterprise customers need to apply VR in new and compelling ways.”
Customers using the Varjo VR-1 include leading global enterprises such as Saab, Airbus, Siemens PLC, and Audi. To make the world’s first human-eye resolution virtual reality headset accessible to even more users, Varjo recently started selling and shipping the VR-1 in Japan, which is a new market for the company.
