Avius has expanded its UK operations to the United States with the opening of its Downtown Winter Haven, Florida office. The U.S. operation will operate as Avius America LLC. The company offers highly intuitive, scalable technology platforms for businesses to gather customer feedback. Avius signed a three-year lease at Suites on Central located at 331 W. Central Avenue. Six/Ten, LLC, completed the deal as landlord.
Avius America CEO, Ben Story, said the company decided to open the office in Winter Haven because of the city’s location to LEGOLAND and proximity to Tampa and Orlando. While the company is based in the UK, having an East Coast U.S. office was always the plan, in order to better serve its clients here.
“After looking at a number of locations, Downtown Winter Haven was the natural choice for many reasons,” said Story. “Having my legal representation, CPA and other business services within walking distance makes doing business simple. The city also has several resources to help businesses grow. For example, the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce already introduced me to a client we’re in final negotiations with.”
“Our work-live-play vision of the downtown region is proving effective as we see more and more local, national and now international businesses relocating or expanding to the area,” said Bud Strang, Six/Ten’s CEO.
Central Park Square, which houses Suites on Central, was once a dilapidated furniture store that Six/Ten transformed into retail and office space. Renovations include modernization of the exterior façade; a new design and color scheme; dramatic, new layouts of both floors; and complete updates to the plumbing, air conditioning, electrical and elevator systems. The building also offers advanced fiber optics for fast and secure Internet and telecom access.
