Gaiju Entertainment, the creators of Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Xenoverse, and Dragon Ball Super, announced today that it will be moving its corporate headquarters to Seattle, Washington.
The move is the culmination of a years-long relationship with Amazon, which has offered Gaijo a facility in its Seattle fulfillment center.
According to Gaiji, the move will create a greater presence in the United States and bring a new, more competitive edge to its business model.
“We have been working with Amazon for many years, and we have always valued the experience and flexibility that Amazon provides our customers,” said Hiroshi Tanaka, Gaijun Entertainment’s president and CEO.
“As a result of the company’s new growth opportunities, we decided to make this move and expand our operations.”
Amazon’s move will provide Gaijeins fulfillment center with more space to operate and more people to work with, with a staff of around 15 people.
GaiJins new Seattle office will be located on the corner of 14th Avenue and King Street, just a few blocks away from Amazon’s existing fulfillment center in Bellevue, Washington, and adjacent to a Starbucks.
Amazon is currently looking to expand its fulfillment center to cover more states and cities across the country, with plans to expand the facility into multiple cities in the next several years.
“We’re excited to bring our growing global footprint to Seattle,” said Aaron Kaplan, co-founder of Gaijai Entertainment, in a press release.
“Amazon is a great company, and it’s a great location to bring new content to our fans.
We look forward to a fruitful partnership.”
With its new headquarters, Gajins is hoping to expand into more markets across the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates.
Gajin announced today it will continue to operate its current headquarters in Seattle, but it will now begin expanding into the United states and Canada, as well.
The company’s other current home is located in Austin, Texas, where it has been working closely with its partner, Microsoft.
