Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For Nominee Settling in Nicely in Plano and Irving
- Jun 18, 2015
Not even a year after announcing plans to relocate its corporate headquarters from Tulsa to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For nominee Hilti North America is ready to settle in at its new home in Plano. The firm decided last year to move to Texas in order to be closer to a broader base of customers and to have access to a larger pool of talent.
But Hilti North America will hold not one, but two grand openings this week – one for its new headquarters at Trammell Crow Co. and Principal Real Estate Investors’ Legacy Towers development in Plano and one for a new research-and-development facility. The latter was announced only a couple of months ago. The new facility will open in Building 4 of Jackson-Shaw’s Parc Royal development in Irving.
“What makes Hilti unique in our industry is our direct contact with customers and the ability to provide immediate access to outstanding products, services and software. With $26 billion in construction in Dallas, relocating our test lab, and repair service and distribution operations, within the Metroplex strengthens our ability to enhance our coverage in this marketplace and throughout Texas,” said Cary Evert, Hilti North America president & CEO, back in October.
Hilti North America was commended by Fortune magazine for its family-like culture, friendly environment and for giving employees the possibility to grow personally and professionally through its various programs.
