Company Honored for Impressive Revenue Growth as well as Investment in the Commonwealth’s Technical Professionals and Business Community
LOWELL, MA, (August 26, 2014) – PlumChoice, Inc., the leading specialized technical services provider in optimizing the benefits consumers and small companies derive from their personal technology experiences, has been named a finalist for the 2014 Team Massachusetts Economic Impact Awards, bestowed annually by MassEcon. The awards celebrate companies from across the Commonwealth for their outstanding contribution to the Massachusetts economy.
PlumChoice partners with top manufacturers, retailers, telcos, cable providers and software companies to meet the skyrocketing technical support demands of consumers’ progressively connected lifestyles. As the “Internet of Things” inevitably drives connected homes and connected small businesses into the mainstream, PlumChoice is uniquely positioned to solve the complex needs that arise from the use and integration of these new and diverse technologies via its purpose-built, specialized technical support services.
The growing company has provided Bay State residents with competitive, flexible, advancement-oriented careers in technology since it was founded in Massachusetts in 2001. Many of the company’s 1,100 employees were taught and trained by local educational institutions and now provide more than 500,000 consumer and small business subscribers with technical support services that optimize their experiences with connected devices.
“We are committed to the technological growth of the Commonwealth. This is our home; we’ve grown here, nurtured a team here, and this is where we will continue to refine and develop technology, and evolve the processes that serve the increasingly complicated technology environments of our growing subscriber base,” said Bob Badavas, President and CEO of PlumChoice. “Our state is a hub of innovation, marked by excellent educational institutions, an impressive talent pool, and an array of technology – from the smallest startups to large, public companies. The combination of our company values, roots in the community and the state’s available talent has enabled PlumChoice to achieve double-digit revenue growth, expand our Massachusetts footprint, and be supportive of the community in which we live.”
PlumChoice currently occupies 37,000 square feet on the 11th floor of the Cross Point Towers in Lowell, Mass. In April, the company constructed a 7,300-square-foot training facility elsewhere in the complex to accommodate growth and allow for rapid deployment of the hundreds of talented, local technical professionals the company will hire this year.
PlumChoice is among 22 companies from across the state selected as finalists for the awards. Key executives from each of the companies will host site visits next month and deliver one-minute presentations about their growth and impact on the Commonwealth to a panel of judges and business leaders on Sept. 17 at Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP in Boston. Secretary of Housing and Economic Development, Greg Bialecki, will be the featured guest at the event.
“We are thrilled to recognize the businesses in Massachusetts that contribute so much to our state’s prosperity,” said Susan Houston, executive director of MassEcon. “The range of industries and regions represented by this outstanding group of companies demonstrates the overall strength of our Commonwealth.”
The companies named as finalists range in size and are drawn from different industries including education, robotics, manufacturing, life sciences, energy, consumer goods, information technology and advertising. MassEcon selected the finalists based on their job growth, facility expansion and investment since Jan. 1, 2013, as well as other criteria, including community involvement. Together, this year’s finalists have added more than 2,100 jobs to Massachusetts, invested nearly $415 million, and expanded their facilities by more than 2.4 million square feet. Winners will be announced in October and recognized at an awards luncheon on Nov. 25.
