GOLETA, Calif. – Inogen has secured an additional facility in the Cleveland area to help grow its direct-to-consumer business, it announced June 2. The facility will allow the company to recruit employees from the Northeast to grow its sales force for that business, the company says. “We are planning on adding additional headcount of approximately 240 people in the Cleveland area location over the next three years,” said Scott Wilkinson, president and CEO. “We look forward to having a sales and service support location in the Eastern time zone, which we think will allow us to better serve our customers.” As of Dec. 31, 2016, Inogen’s sales force for the direct-to-consumer business comprised 177 sales representatives located in the company’s Goleta, Calif., and Richardson, Texas, facilities. The Cleveland area facility will also include customer service and support functions. Inogen has secured tax benefits from state and local governments of up to $1.9 million over the next three years based on forecasted headcount additions and tenant improvement costs for the facility.
