Israeli startup moves sales and distribution to Ohio

Israel has been nicknamed “Startup Nation” and for good reason: It has the largest number of startups per capita in the world, around one startup per 1,400 people.

Now, one Tel Aviv startup, UVeye (it automates vehicle inspection systems), has announced that it’s moving its US and Canadian sales and distribution headquarters to Cleveland. The company considered a number of locations, but the city’s proximity to Detroit and Chicago may have tipped the balance.

UVeye’s technology—which uses proprietary hardware and AI for its inspections—runs the gamut from scratches and dents to bombs:

  • Helios is a floor-based system that takes 10 seconds to scan a vehicle’s undercarriage.
  • Atlas can scan 360 degrees of a vehicle’s exterior for damage or broken systems.
  • Artemis is a tire inspection system.
