Fortessa Tableware Solutions has expanded its global headquarters in Loudoun County, moving into a brand-new building at One Loudoun in Ashburn, Virginia.
The location provides easy access to Washington-Dulles International Airport, as well as the region’s transit and shipping arteries.
“Fortessa Tableware Solutions— an international leader in the markets we serve, is delighted to take its place in the heart of a vital, commercial network and community,” Scott M. Hamberger, co-founder and CEO of Fortessa Tableware Solutions, said in a press release. “The new location in One Loudoun will add value to our customer relationships by enhancing our internal working processes and furthering our program of recruiting, developing, and retaining world-class talent.
“It is a pleasure to be able to move into a facility that we’ve designed from the ground up to reinforce our corporate culture and identity.”
Fortessa is an overwhelming Loudoun success story, particularly as an internationally-owned firm. In fact, if you turn over your dinner plate in a restaurant almost anywhere in the world, there is a good chance it says “Fortessa” on it. That was exported from Loudoun County.
“Any business relies on good governance, sensible regulation, and a political environment that supports prosperity as a social good in and of itself,” Hamberger said. “Loudoun County, and Virginia more broadly, have provided such an environment for many years.”
The building has shared signage with Sterling Restaurant Supply, a Fortessa subsidiary that was previously based in a separate building in Sterling, Virginia. The move creates greater efficiency between the two brands.
“We are pleased to bring our successful Sterling Restaurant Supply format,” Hamberger told Loudoun Now, “which appeals to professionals and discerning consumers alike, to the world-class One Loudoun destination.”
