For Immediate Release: January 27, 2014
(Fort Wayne, IN) – Fort Wayne-based Pyromation, Inc. began operations related to the company’s office renovation and expansion project this month. The project is expected to be completed by September of this year. The office renovation and expansion project follows the company’s plant expansion and renovation, which was completed in 2012.
The $1.25 million project updates the company’s administrative offices, which were last remodeled in 1986. Since that time, Pyromation’s sales have grown from $5 million to $30 million in 2013.
The offices are being completely redone with demolition, revisions, reconstruction and a modern décor applied as part of the process. The renovation incorporates a larger, visitor-friendly lobby, as well as, contemporary conference rooms and office space. The project also includes updates to plumbing, electrical, HVAC and network wiring. When completed, the renovation will have created new space for an additional five to 10 administrative employees, who are expected to be hired in the next year. The anticipated positions range from Sales Engineer to Quality Technician.
The new office layout and design was developed with the assistance of One Eleven Design and construction is being conducted by Weigand Construction, both local Fort Wayne firms.
“The expansion and makeover of our plant operations in 2012 has paid dividends in the impact it has had on visitors to our facility, particularly prospective customers. It was necessary to make sure our lobby and offices reflected a similar and consistent image for our company,” stated Pete Wilson, President of Pyromation. He continued, “As with our plant expansion, this new office renovation/expansion is necessary to keep up with our growth over the last twenty-five years, and indicates our commitment to remaining in Fort Wayne as we continue to build on our success.”
