Sovee Moves To New Corporate Headquarters On Riverside Drive

Move Is To Accommodate Business Expansion And Workforce Growth

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Sovee, a global translation and video technology company headquartered in Chattanooga, has relocated the company’s corporate offices to 1516-B Riverside Drive to accommodate its business expansion and growing staff. 

“Sovee has grown so quickly in the past two years that we have completely outgrown our space in the Amnicola building,” said Sovee President Scott Gaskill. “We have hired close to 20 people in our Chattanooga headquarters over the past year, as well as adding more sales agents around the world. We plan to continue hiring in 2014 as well.” 

Sovee employs linguists for translation verification , technology developers, video transcoding specialists and sales and service professionals, who serve customers in the U.S. Australia, Europe, Africa and India.

The company’s move will take place in two phases. This week, Sovee’s Corporate Office, Marketing, Project Management and Inside Sales teams moved to the new headquarters.

Sovee’s Technology Development and Translation Operations Center will remain in the old Amnicola Building while new space for a technology development “cave” is constructed in the Riverside Drive building. Eventually, Sovee will occupy over half of the river-facing building.

“For a few months, Chattanoogans will see Sovee signs at each end of the river,” said Mr. Gaskill. “We look forward to being reunited under one roof later this year.”

“One thing we did not consider was moving our headquarters to another city,” Mr. Gaskill added. “Chattanooga is the perfect location for technology company. The entire city is wired for one-gigabit-per-second fiber internet service, with Internet speeds 200 times the speed of the national average. It’s a beautiful place for our employees to live and work, and one of the friendliest cities on the planet.”
