2019 is an exciting year for Aldrich Web Solutions.
We're in the midst of our Fifteen Year Anniversary Celebration and have many ambitious items on the docket to accomplish in the coming months. From new product integrations and development, to the continued publishing of state-of-the-art e-commerce features, to attending new trade conferences, we're adding a major change to our to-do list—moving in to a new-and-improved office building.
In 2004, we started our business. In 2011, we relocated across the country from Oklahoma to Illinois. In 2014, we expanded our office 600 square feet to make room for our growing team. Despite the office expansion, we quickly outgrew our 1,600 square foot office and began the search for more space in 2018. Just last week, we bought a new 3,400 square foot building that gives us 1,800 more square feet and more than doubles our square footage at present. We're happy to announce that in May 2019, Aldrich Web Solutions will be relocating to the new building roughly one mile from our current location in Southern Illinois.
The new location will add much more than 1,800 square feet of extra space. The building is currently undergoing extensive remodeling to best suit the needs of our growing team. Walls will be knocked down and moved, private offices will be made larger, popcorn ceilings will be scraped—there are very few surfaces that will be left untouched during the remodeling. Our new facilities will give our expanding team the space they need to continue to develop and improve our integrated e-commerce products and provide the utmost service and care to our customers and prospects.
As 2019 unfolds, we're moving forward with thankfulness, excitement, and determination. This move wouldn't have been possible without our growing customer family or our dedicated team members. Be sure to check back for updates on our relocation and remodeling—we can't wait for you to see the final results!
