Impact Networking Unveils State-Of-The-Art Headquarters
Wednesday, April 27, 2016
BTA member Impact Networking LLC has moved into its brand-new, state-of-the-art headquarters building. Located across the street from their the company's distribution center, the 20,000 square-foot, two-story office building is the new home to administrative, IT, sales, dispatch, directors and C-level employees.
"With Impact growing at such a fast pace, our old headquarters location was getting too small and was beginning to hinder our internal productivity," said Frank Cucco, CEO, Impact Networking. "The new headquarters opening came at the perfect time; the amount of space that we have is going to allow us to hire more talent, which will, in turn, allow us to better serve our clients and continue to grow."
Designed by Michael Borchew, Impact's chief marketing officer, the new building is equipped with abundant technology and an innovative open office plan utilizing collaborative furniture, glass walls, LED lighting and exposed, open ceilings.
"We designed a work environment that employees want to come to each day," Borchew said. "There are open office areas, private touch-down spaces, large conference rooms and a huge kitchen/cafe. We integrated as much technology as possible and experimented with color and work surfaces to make a design statement that is consistent with our branding."
Standout features include multiple large, video-enabled conference rooms, a training center with a 16-by-9-foot Prysm Virtual Workplace Wall, a technology showroom with touchscreen demo displays and multiple lounge areas with wet bars.
With plans in the works for the northwest Indiana, Rockford and Central Illinois branches, the opening of the new headquarters building is the beginning of growth for Impact in 2016.
To celebrate the opening of the new building, Impact will be hosting a "Grand Opening" Technology Showcase May 19-20. For more information, visit http://impactmybiz.com/events/grand-opening.
