Bossa Nova, an international provider of real-time, on-shelf inventory data for the retail industry, has today announced the opening of its Sheffield office and the appointment of Red McKay as Managing Director.
Building on the success of its US deployment in Walmart stores, this expansion will enable Bossa Nova to meet UK demand for its autonomous robot and real-time data services.
Martin Hitch, Co-Founder and Chief Business Officer of Bossa Nova said: “The UK is a natural extension for our retail service solutions, and we expect rapid expansion under the leadership of Red McKay. Red’s experience of working for retailers and their suppliers will ensure a successful launch of our services in the UK.”
Bossa Nova expects the office to grow rapidly and chose Sheffield for its universities’ excellence in robotics. Additionally, the company will advance its partnerships with the UK robotics industry.
Minister for Investment, Graham Stuart MP said: “Sheffield has access to first-class talent and a global reputation for excellence in robotics, so it is no surprise Bossa Nova has chosen to open its first international HQ in the city. Bossa Nova’s office move is another endorsement of Britain’s world-class investment environment, particularly outside of London, for the world’s leading tech companies.”
