From a Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) press release:

"Surrey Satellite Technology US opens for business
Leading small satellite manufacturer, Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL), has set up a new subsidiary in the United States to take advantage of the growing international demand for economical, responsive and highly capable spacecraft for a broad range of applications.

The new company, Surrey Satellite Technology US LLC (SST-US), has opened an office in Colorado and will eventually have centres in California and Washington DC enabling SSTL to work much closer and more efficiently with its customers.

SSTL’s Commercial Director, Dr John Paffett, has been appointed CEO of the new company and can see great potential: “The US is the world’s largest satellite market and presents a great opportunity for us. Surrey Satellite Technology strives to improve and increase the application and utility of small satellites that address the need for operationally responsive space. With budgets coming under increasing pressure, we’ve now reached the point where the price performance of some of these systems is opening up space to a whole new range of customers, applications and services.”
