Expanding its New York City presence, Samsung will open a 55,000 square foot property at 837 Washington Street, in the Meatpacking District. The new facility is meant to showcase the company's full range of enterprise mobile solutions, and will serve as the home office for the company's Brand Marketing Team.
The Marketing Center of Excellence will lead the company's digital, creative and social media programs while the Enterprise Customer Briefing Center will focus on serving New York commercial and institutional customers.
"Just as we have grown our presence in Silicon Valley, expanding our presence in the New York area is an important next step for our company," said Gregory Lee, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics North America. "The new, cutting-edge Samsung office in the Meatpacking District will help guarantee that our business is closer to some of our important customers, an innovation-minded workforce and other key stakeholders for our businesses."
Samsung has recently reinvested in its Dallas, TX facility and is nearing completion on a state-of-the-art research facility in Mountain View, CA and a regional headquarters office for its components business in San Jose, CA.
The 837 Washington Street location will be Samsung's flagship Manhattan office and will play a central role in developing, attracting and retaining some of the talent as well. The building is currently under construction and will open later this year.
