UK-based COSi Limited (Creative Outsourcing Solutions International) is building a new product innovation center in the UK. Scheduled to open this summer, the new center, employing 20 R&D managers, technical managers, development scientists and microbiologists, will house world-class development laboratories and product evaluation laboratory facilities under one roof. In addition, there will be creative rooms displaying trends in current and conceptual materials and components from suppliers around the world.
In the U.S., the company opened a sales office on Madison Avenue in New York City. According to executives, the primary reason for the move is to help the company service its growing U.S. customer base better and to work more closely with component and raw material suppliers.
