Granite Telecommunications Expands Orlando-West Palm Beach, Florida Operations Centers

Granite Telecommunications, a provider of communications solutions to businesses throughout North America, will open a new office in Orlando and expand its operations in West Palm Beach, Florida. The expansion will create more than 100 jobs.

Rand Currier, COO of Granite, said, “Granite has seen tremendous growth and record sales across the country, with Florida being a top market for growth. That is especially true for Orlando, with its many businesses and talented workforce, which made it an ideal spot for Granite’s newest sales and support office. In West Palm Beach, we have seen consistent growth that prompted us to increase the number of our sales and technical support personnel there. We are proud of the work that our Florida-based teammates have contributed to the company already, and are banking on an even larger role for them in the future as we expand in Florida.”

Partners in the expansions include Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Orlando Economic Development Commission, Business Development Board of Palm Beach County, Orange County, Palm Beach County and Enterprise Florida.

Cissy Proctor, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, said, “Florida’s competitive business environment is helping companies like Granite Telecommunications rapidly grow across the Sunshine State. Granite will more than double its workforce, providing new job opportunities to West Palm Beach and Orlando families pursuing the American dream.”

Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, said, “We’re delighted to welcome the newest regional headquarters facility for Granite Telecommunications to Central Florida, including 54 high-value jobs. Thanks to our strong workforce, our expanding high-tech assets and robust, innovation-driven economy, Orange County provides the ideal location for Granite Telecommunications to expand their sales force and headquarters footprint.”

“Orlando’s tech talent is once again a major draw for IT companies looking to expand and grow their business. Our highly skilled workforce is helping to shape all aspects of the economy with their experience and ingenuity. The technology industry is booming in Orlando with thousands of positions created last year alone,” said David Fuller, Chair of Orlando Economic Development Commission.

Kelly Smallridge, President/CEO of the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County said, “Granite is a great example of a technology company that is thriving in Palm Beach County and its decision to expand here confirms the strength and quality of our workforce.”
