Gtech USA is on the Move! Check Out the New Digs!

IMAG0358

We’ve been busy here at Gtech USA, not only working hard to provide the best-loved vacuum in America, but also moving to our new US headquarters in the funky little hamlet of Paulus Hook in Jersey City, New Jersey!

We are so excited to start working from our new office space, just a stone’s throw from the Big Apple. In fact, we have a beautiful view of the new World Trade Center, right down the street, across the mighty Hudson River.

This will now be the new hub of our operations. We are homegrown at our US base of operations. And, hey, we’re from ‘Jersey… what more could you ask for? (oh yeah, and in answer to your next question, its exit 14C).

For those who don’t know, Paulus Hook in Jersey City, which is just across from downtown Manhattan, is a city on the move. There’s a great history here; it’s on the National Register of Historic Places for its pivotal role in the American Revolution (google Battle of Paulus Hook), and in the last decade a burgeoning arts district and major redevelopment has brought in new businesses, young urban professionals, families, fantastic cafes and shops to explore. It’s a great place to visit!

What’s more, this area of Jersey City is just a stone’s throw from our Lady Liberty and Ellis Island.. where so many people came to the New World to find their success in America. For thousands of immigrants, their first steps in the New World were taken here. So it seems quite appropriate that Gtech USA should land here… seeking to bring the same success we’ve had across the pond (where are the fastest growing vacuum brand in the UK in 2013*) to the US! Our goal is to bring that same love of vacuuming to millions of people across America.

But to really understand the beauty of this area, you have to see it. So we put together a little tour of our new digs, the local landmarks and the amazing views. Check out our photos here on our Facebook page and there’s plenty more to come as we welcome new team members to our Gtech USA team. And while you’re there, please be sure to “like” our page so we can keep you up to date on all the Gtech happenings.

Zoinks! Product Review, “Zell or Zilch,” Gives AirRam Props on Performance & Function

wccb

Cool name, huh? “Zell or Zilch” may be a catchy title, but when it comes to reviewing new products, consumer reporter Kristine Zell, from Charlotte’s WCCB, pulls no punches. This lady tells it like it is when it comes to reviewing the latest products on the market. Products get her seal of approval or “Zell” if all goes well.. or a big old “Zilch” if she thinks customers should move along.

As you can imagine, we were excited to hear that she chose our AirRam to review in a segment about modern cleaning products with a twist. When the segment finally aired, we were there, watching with anticipation! The first product (not ours) got a big old “Zilch!”… Ouch! Then it was our turn. Zell took our AirRam for a spin around her own home. Right off the top, she called it “super light weight” and easy to maneuver. So far so good. But what did she think about the cleaning power?

“It really did a good job of picking up a lot of junk that I had, I wasn’t sure because it is so lightweight and it is cordless but I was impressed… It stays charged for 40 minutes, that was plenty of time to clean my house.” – Kristine Zell, Zell or Zilch

Phew! She liked it… well, that’s not true.. her actual words?

“I love, love, loved it!…. for performance and function I’m giving it a Zell!” – Zell

Woo-Hoo! We got a Zell! (I wonder if we get a trophy to go along with it) Anyway, we’re happy our AirRam’s performance, function and power stood out to this no holds barred consumer reporter.

Techmoan Takes Us for a Test Drive…. Gives Step by Step Review

Techmoan

We’ve gotta say… we like this guy. Watch a few of his videos and you’ll agree. The very charming and affable, Mat (just Mat) founder of the tech review site, Techmoan, bought an AirRam, on his own, and posted a very thorough video review.

Mat gave viewers a step by step walk through of his experience with his new AirRam, right out of the box. He remarked at how easy it was to set up, even joking, “If you can’t figure this out, there is something wrong with you.” LOL.. good one, Mat.

He went on to say he appreciated the AirRam’s ability to get down low under furniture and easily steer around his house. But what really won over our intrepid techie was the ability to “cut the cord,” so to speak.

“Now the thing that I really like about this vacuum is the way that not having a (cord) on the back gives you some freedom to move around the entire house. You just can move from carpet to hard floor, go ’round the entire house. It’s so quick. So that battery charge lasts an awful lot longer than you think because you can just move around the house so quickly and easily.” – Mat, Techmoan

Yes! You totally get us, Mat! We take everything that people hate about vacuuming and make it disappear!

“I don’t think I could go back to messing around with wires on a vacuum cleaner again. It seems too old fashioned after using this.” – Mat, Techmoan

You said it, Mat. Cords are so yesterday. :) Well, we hope you enjoy your AirRam for many years to come and thanks for the great review! Keep ‘em coming!

We just love that phrase, coined by consumer tech columnist Lou Torraca, who checked out our AirRam at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Lou got a chance to meet Nick and take our vacuum for a spin, which he called “a revolution in vacuuming.” One of the main standouts for him? Easy dirt dumping.

“I think the feature I like best is the ease of emptying it. The dirt/dust gets compacted into small bales and there is no ambient dust when you discard them. I rate this machine a 5 out of 5!” – Lou Torraca, Around Hawaii Consumer Tech Columnist

Woo-Hoo! 5 stars! We’ll take it! And, of course, being a lover of all things tech, Lou loved the ability to track usage.

“A geeky flourish is a USB port and software that allows you to hook up the AirRam to your computer and analyze your battery life, energy savings, and even calculate how many calories you burned while vacuuming… Actually, it’s kind of fun to plug in at the end of a session and see these stats.” – Torraca

Thanks Lou, we think it’s pretty cool too! Check out Lou’s full review here.

Co-Host of VH1′s The Gossip Table Proclaims the AirRam the Perfect Gift for the One You Love!

“It’s a unique way of saying I love you,” said Noah Levy, lifestyle expert and co-host of VH1′s The Gossip Table in a recent segment on New York City’s 24-hour newschannel, NY1, and we couldn’t agree more! I mean, hey, our mission is to provide the best loved vacuum in the world, so whenever we are equated with love, we get giddy!

Ok, back to the segment, we were joined by several other great gift ideas, but ended up dominating the segment (sorry Godiva) as they discussed why our AirRam is the perfect way to “think outside the box” and show your love for that special someone.

“This is something to get someone that you really know… It works, it picks up everything, and it’s not noisy either! I love it I think it’s a great gift,” said Levy.

Well thanks Noah, we love you too. And your comment that “you could smile from a vacuum,” put a big one on our faces!

Top Product Review Site Says AirRam “Sets a High Bar for Other Companies to Meet”

This is a big one for us. As we make our way into the US market, we are really looking to stand out from the competition. And thanks to TrulyNet founder Greg May’s review of our AirRam, it looks like we are on our way to accomplishing that goal. After taking the AirRam for a spin he reported:

“The AirRam is a great new entrant to the US market and sets a high bar for other companies to meet.” -Greg May, founder, TrulyNet.com

Love it! Especially hearing it from one of the top websites featuring the latest and greatest gadgets to make your life easier.

“One of the coolest features that sets the AirRam apart, though, is the “compacting” element, that makes for easier cleanup, as it compresses dirt and dust and such into blocks.” – May

May went on to point out that in creating the AirRam, we’ve taken many of the things people didn’t like about cordless vacs and made them disappear!

“One huge issue has been that battery-powered vacuums tend to be too heavy, but this one was light enough to lift easily, at under eight pounds. Battery life has been the other major concern, and this too had been well-addressed, with a running time of 40 minutes or so on a single charge.” – May

He rounded it out by calling us the one to beat.

“We’ve seen few competitors able to match the Gtech AirRam’s excellent balance of weight, power, and battery life.” – May

Thanks Greg! Keep up the great need-to-know reviews on news, fashion, gadgets and more!

What Does the AirRam have in common with Justin Bieber and Katy Perry? Plenty!

OK, we might be exaggerating just a little bit. But we did just get reviewed by witty, no-holds-barred writer, Michael Mardings, on TheCelebrityCafe.com. Michael’s musings have taken aim at everyone from Katie Perry’s SNL bomb to Justin’s jail bail… thankfully, he took a liking to our AirRam and gave us a 5-star review!

“…the AirRam doesn’t only clean, but it also helps you stay in shape. Connect it to your PC via the USB and it measures how many calories you burned while cleaning.” – Michael Mardings, TheCelebrityCafe.com

What celeb isn’t constantly working to stay in tip top shape? And we’re sure after some sizzling Tinseltown soiree, there’s lots of cleaning up to do. But as Michael points out, you can get rid of the dirt and debris faster than you can say “Paparazzi!”

“And because it’s bagless you don’t have to worry about making a mess swapping out bags. Simply open the container and dump its contents into the trash.” – Mardings

Thanks Michael and keep up the great work! We look forward to reading more on all the hot Hollywood happenings on TheCelebrityCafe.com.

We’re Just Wild About Wild Ruffle… and They’re Just Wild About Us!

Wild Ruffle

As you can see, this review was music to our ears. We’ve been humming this tune ever since we read the great review by the fabulous fashionista (and fellow clean freak) Cate Mezyk!

Cate and her hubby (another lover of all things spic and span) tried out our AirRam and marveled at the maneuverability.

“(The) original plan was to move our bed so he could vacuum under it. And he would’ve had to move it had we used our old vacuum, an Oreck. But this amazing thing folded completely FLAT so he was able to reach under the entire thing to clean it up… I heard him yell from upstairs, “You have GOT to see this!” He was as giddy as I’ve ever seen him. Truly.” – Cate Mezyk, Founder of Wild Ruffle

Cate continued to sing our praises when she saw the power behind out mighty vac.

“You will be appalled at what it picks up from your floor. Because as someone who vacuums regularly, I was shocked to see how much crud was still stuck in the carpet fibers.” – Mezyk

You just can’t beat that… from a woman who KNOWS how clean!

“I kid you not when I tell you in all honesty that this is the best vacuum I have ever used. It’s lightweight, making stairs a breeze. It’s bagless (you simply open up the dust/dirt compartment and dump as you go). The head rotates, allowing you to get around corners easily. AND it’s cordless!” – Mezyk

Thanks Cate! We think you’re pretty great too!
