PlumChoice Inc., a provider of outsourced support for technology immersion based in the Cross Point towers, was recently recognized for its expansion efforts and community partnerships.
MassEcon, a nonprofit that describes itself as a private-sector partner in promoting Massachusetts for business growth, named PlumChoice a “Community Hero” at the 2014 Team Massachusetts Economic Impact Awards.
In all, 18 companies were honored with various awards at the event, which was held last month at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel.
Susan Houston, executive director for MassEcon, said the Community Hero award is new this year. “These are companies that made outstanding contributions to their sectors or communities,” she said. “PlumChoice stood out for its work-force development and partnerships with important institutions.”
In August, the privately-held company announced it formed a partnership with the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston in which the two entities will co-fund and co-manage a new campus facility dedicated to training tech-support agents.
PlumChoice first moved to Lowell from Billerica in October 2012. In April, it announced it expanded its footprint at Cross Point by adding a 7,000-square-foot training facility.
