Lextant Relocates To Expanded Operations Center In Columbus, Ohio

Lextant, an experience-centered research and design consultancy, plans to expand its operations center, relocating to a larger facility at 250 S. High Street, in Columbus, Ohio.

Along with its new 13,000-square-foot office space, the research and design company will add 40 people to its existing 55-person workforce over the next five years, which is in addition to 10 people hired over the past six months. Positions include design researchers, user experience designers, human behavior specialists and business strategists.

“Lextant will use its non-disclosed investment to build-out a state-of-the-art research facility that will accommodate focus groups, in-depth interviewing, observation research and usability testing. The investment will also include new equipment and consumer research technologies, along with associate amenities,” according to Columbus 2020.

“The move is an opportunity for Lextant to continue to grow and better serve our customers,” said Chris Rockwell, Lextant’s President/Founder. “We’re looking forward to helping shape the continued growth of Columbus and its creative class.”

“I’m pleased to see this local company demonstrating a long-term commitment to Columbus with its latest expansion,” said Mayor Michael B. Coleman. “Along with boosting job opportunities for our residents, Lextant will add to the growing creative energy in downtown Columbus.”
