Waveform Technology has grown its staff, customer base, and footprint in Troy over the last year.
The 20-year-old data center firm has hired two people over the last year, expanding its staff to five employees and the occasional summer intern. It has also grown its customer base from a number of Michigan-based firms to companies across the U.S. That has prompted the company to take on another facility in Troy this year.
"Essentially, we have out-grown our current facility," says Rich Tota, sales manager for Waveform Technology
. "We're going to keep the building we're at and branch out into a second one, which is three times the size of our current building."
Waveform Technology's geographically diverse and growing customer base gave Tota and Waveform Technology's team the confidence to undertake the expansion. However, is the home-grown growth that was the most encouraging sign in recent months.
"Michigan's economy is starting to come up," Tota says. "That's something we noticed right off the bat."
