Thermodata moves to Whitewater Innovation Center

Excerpted from Janesville Gazette/Walworth County Today

Thermodata, an international corporation with clients on every continent, has moved its world headquarters to the Innovation Center at Whitewater University Technology Park.

The company develops and markets temperature-monitoring systems for a wide range of industries, including health care, food service, scientific research and public health.

“I am pleased to welcome Thermodata to the Innovation Center and to a growing community of technology companies in the area,” said Richard Telfer, UW-Whitewater chancellor. “With only one unoccupied suite left, it is clear that entrepreneurs see the Innovation Center as an ideal place to start and grow their businesses.”

Founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2001, Thermodata opened an office in Boston in 2010, and relocated to Wisconsin in April.

“We are excited to move to the Midwest and specifically Whitewater,” said Jenny Samfat, co-owner of Thermodata. “The work ethic of the people here reminds us of home, where people love to tinker, to make things. We are looking forward to collaborating with other tenants on research and development.

Robert Keith, founder and co-owner of Thermodata, called the Innovation Center a strategic location.

“We are now in the heart of the country – and we’ll be able to get the supplies and equipment we need in the quantities we need,” he said. “We share other tenants’ desire to use the most up-to-date technology to serve our clients.”
