SIGMA Equipment Completes Collaborative Office Expansion
RELEASED: 10/31/2017 10:00:00 AM
SIGMA Equipment announced today the completion of an expansion project that began in April, 2017.
The expansion includes the construction of new offices for the IT Department, and a large collaborative workspace.
Within its main warehouse space, SIGMA Equipment constructed 32 offices for its IT and Marketing staff. The new space includes a large atrium and an additional entrance to the building. The space is designed to give developers individual quiet spaces to enable focus during software development, while also providing teams with large spaces appropriate for brainstorming and planning.
“Innovative technology has been our focus from the very beginning of this company,” said Company President Rob Palmer. “We build our customer solutions from the ground up, so it’s important that our creative teams have a space where they can collaborate effectively.”
SIGMA drew inspiration from other tech companies when designing the space, with the goal of building an innovation center focused on collaboration-centric workspaces. Encouraging face-to-face communication stimulates both the mixing of people and disciplines while driving collaboration between all corporate divisions. This new space removes physical boundaries between departments and individuals and creates an open, fun and energetic hub for the entire organization.
“To build the best software possible, both internally and for our customers,” said IT Director Patrick Johnson, “we want to be able to get all the different skills sets working together from the beginning. The new offices will put our IT, User Experience, Marketing and Analytics staff in closer proximity, and also give them a better space for large group meetings.”
This expansion project is the latest is a series of expansion at SIGMA, including an office expansion in 2015, a larger machine shop in 2016, and a new wash bay and warehouse purchase in 2017.
