Tech firm finds new home
A local technology firm has chosen a new home in a suburb.
Grand Rapids-based ITS Partners, an IT firm, said last month it signed a lease to occupy a new building to be constructed at 496 Ada Dr. in Ada Village.
The firm is currently located at 4079 Park East Court SE.
“Our company has outgrown our current space, and our new location is exactly what we need,” said Fritz Byam, president and CEO, ITS Partners. “As we expand, our team wanted a workplace that’s easy to get to and has plenty of nearby amenities. With its location and abundance of restaurants and parks within walking distance, Ada checked off every box.”
ITS Partners employs around 80 people.
The Business Journal reported in November that The Right Place assisted the firm in receiving a $476,000 Michigan Economic Development Corporation, or MEDC, grant.
The grant will assist the firm with the $2.5-million project, which is expected to bring 68 new jobs over the next few years.
The groundbreaking on the new building is expected to take place this spring.
ITS Partners hopes to move into its new headquarters in spring 2019.
