Moves Part of Strategic Changes Under OwnersEdge Leadership
Brookfield, Wis. (March 8, 2017) – BAYCOM, a leading provider of mission-critical voice, mobile data and video solutions for public safety and commercial clients throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest, is moving two of its offices into new, brand-aligned facilities.
As of March 24, BAYCOM will relocate from a smaller space in West Allis to a new, larger building in Pewaukee. In addition, as of April 17, BAYCOM and CC&N, sister companies in the OwnersEdge portfolio, will establish a regional office in Fox Crossing. The combined location will replace individual offices BAYCOM occupied in Neenah and CC&N had in Appleton.
The moves are part of a strategic alignment between OwnersEdge companies. In April 2016, OwnersEdge added two Green Bay-based companies – BAYCOM, Inc. and TourGuide Solutions – to its existing portfolio that included CC&N and NEXT Electric. All of the companies are 100% employee-owned ESOPs.
“BAYCOM and CC&N provide a number of complementary services to clients so bringing the two companies closer together in Pewaukee and under one roof in the Fox Valley should deliver additional business integration opportunities,” says Lisa Reardon, president, CEO and chairman of OwnersEdge Inc.
BAYCOM will relocate 21 employees from a 7,500-square-foot office at 11408 W. Lincoln Ave., West Allis, to BAYCOM South, a new 8,400-square-foot facility at W239 N2890 Pewaukee Rd., Pewaukee. As part of the expansion, the company is planning to add sales, marketing and technical employees.
The Pewaukee office has been designed to meet the specific requirements of BAYCOM’s business operations and will include an expanded technical services department and dedicated areas for equipment staging, bench repair and equipment installation.
“As a leading technology provider in the state, it’s imperative we have a modern space that reflects our commitment to quality products and client service,” says Scott Johnson, director of technical operations for BAYCOM. “Our new location allows us to showcase the lines we carry and deliver an improved client experience.”
BAYCOM and CC&N Regional Office
BAYCOM and CC&N are moving into a new, 6,600-square-foot building at 1620 Drum Corps Dr., Fox Crossing. A total of 20 employees will transfer to the regional office to serve the growing Fox Valley and surrounding counties.
The regional facility features an enhanced technical infrastructure that includes Cat6 cabling throughout and specialized areas to demonstrate and stage equipment, as well as a separate building BAYCOM technicians will use for installation of public safety equipment in police, fire, EMS and city and county vehicles.
“Our two new facilities have so many internal and external benefits. Internally, since the labor market for skilled technicians is extremely tight, we hope to attract new talent and retain current employees, based on a more comfortable work environment. Externally, our clients will enjoy a more integrated and streamlined approach to their business needs,” says Johnson.
