Streetsboro is now home to the headquarters of Gebhardt USA Inc., which designs the software and hardware companies use to move products within large warehouses and distribution centers. 

“We signed the contract on July 19,” said Klaus-Dieter Wurm, president and chief executive officer of Gebhardt USA, which is a part of Gebhardt International. “We took possession on Dec. 13, so it’s not even four weeks. So we got a lot already done in those four weeks.”

Wurm said the company moved to Streetsboro from Brunswick, which was its prior North American headquarters. 

“After outgrowing our leased office and warehouse space in Brunswick, where we operated for the last 20 years, we started a search process,” he said. “We weren’t actually able to find a suitable building in the Brunswick geographic area, so we increased the search radius to Northeast Ohio and ultimately decided to purchase our new headquarters building in Streetsboro.”
