Rutronik Opens Its First North American Hq

German-based Rutronik opens its first North American HQ in Independence

Rutronik, an international electronic distributor, recently opened its North American Headquarters in Independence. The German-based company currently employs six people at their Independence office, and they plan on expanding to at least 50 employees within three to four years. This Northeast Ohio headquarters is the company’s first location in the United States.

Team NEO met with Rutronik’s leadership in Stuttgart, Germany last September to convince the company’s board and Vice President, Jeff Shafer, that Cleveland was a better location than Detroit for its North American headquarters.

“We are excited to locate our North America headquarters in Northeast Ohio and with the continued help and support of Team NEO, we are sure to welcome success and opportunities across the various regions,” Shafer said. He also met with Team NEO in Cleveland before the company decided to open this location. 

The Cleveland Plus region offers an ideal environment for international business operations. For more information, contact:
