Beam Dental, a next-generation provider of dental insurance for small and medium-sized businesses, plans to expand its operations in Columbus, Ohio. The company plans to create 150 new jobs and invest $1.5 million.

Beam currently employs around 50 full-time employees at its downtown office in Columbus. The company continues to experience dramatic growth in the dental insurance industry and will expand into a new facility in Downtown Columbus in June to accommodate its ongoing success. The company will hire across multiple departments including engineering, sales and claims processing.

“When we started Beam, we knew quality talent and community support would be critical to our success,” said Beam Founder & CEO Alex Frommeyer. “Columbus really impressed us with its digital talent ecosystem, which has proven to be vital for our rapid expansion and was a core reason behind our decision to build the company here.”

“Beam’s rapid growth in a competitive landscape is a great example of how innovative startups can thrive in the Columbus Region,” said Columbus Mayor Andrew J. Ginther. “The company’s continued investment in our community will not only help create more jobs, but it will further solidify Columbus as a leading market for insurance carriers and entrepreneurs.”

“Beam Dental’s innovative dental benefits provide value for small and medium-sized businesses while encouraging better dental health for members,” said Aaron Pitts, Senior Managing Director for Healthcare at JobsOhio. “We are excited to see Beam bring 150 new jobs that will support its growing operations in the Columbus Region to benefit its customers nationally.”
