Purchase of New EDT Corporate Headquarters Site
EDT announces the closing on the purchase of its new corporate headquarters site in Norcross, Georgia, USA which will house EDT's worldwide operations, including research and development, manufacturing and quality control, sales and marketing, and central business functions. The site location is at 3975 Steve Reynolds Boulevard, Norcross, GA 30093 and is only 3 miles (5 km) from EDT's current site, which has housed operations since the company's inception in 1994.

The purchase encompasses an existing 11-acre site that previously served as the North American research, development, and quality control headquarters for a leading manufacturing company. EDT will be renovating and adding to the site to build out laboratories, production facilities, and general office space that suit its needs. Altogether, this new facility will represent a significant increase in size and capabilities for EDT as it continues driving growth around the world.

EDT aims to begin construction shortly and envisions a move to this new location in the early part of 2008.

The building was officially dedicated in a special ceremony on May 16, 2008. The design and build-out phase of the facility began in July 2007 with a site dedication being held in November 2007 during a visit from Sweden by EDT's technology founder, Dr. Karl-Erik Eriksson. The build-out was completed in early 2008 and shortly thereafter the company relocated from its previous site which had served EDT since 1995.
