HMB, Inc., an information technology company, will expand its facility in Westerville, Ohio. The expansion, which includes a $550,000 investment in training, software and equipment, will enable the firm to add 75 employees to its current roster of 145 during the next three years.
Growth of the company’s production service line created the demand for expansion and more employees. The company’s 75 new jobs represent $5.6 million in new payroll. Hiring for the positions in the Columbus, Ohio region, which include designers, developers and strategists, is expected to begin in January.
“Since opening our doors in 1994, we’ve quickly grown into a trusted provider in the IT sector,” said John Mackessy, CFO, HMB. “Our credibility and success can be attributed, in part, to the Columbus Region companies that have become our partners. We hope to continue to build on that success in the Region.”
“The Columbus Region is an ideal location for companies like HMB because of broad access to technology consumers,” said Jason Bechtold, Economic Development Administrator, City of Westerville. “We are excited to see this expansion happening based on how well the company is thriving in Westerville.”
