San Diego-based NuVasive Inc., a maker of surgical products for the spine, is expanding and relocating its office in the United Kingdom.

The company said in a statement that the new London office will allow it to better grow its market share across Northern Europe. The two-story, 7,500-square-foot building adds office space, increases warehousing capability, and has a space for staff training and surgeon events.

The company will also grow its sales and operational support staff.

The original U.K. office opened in 2008, and was the company’s first international branch. It now operates in 25 countries throughout Europe, Australia and Asia.

NuVasive (NasdaqGS: NUVA), a $1.03 billion market cap company, was founded in 1997 and employs 1,300 globally, about 1,100 of which are in San Diego.
