Since 2013, our Fort Wayne staff has expanded from about 35 employees to more than 50 employees in 2014. We have grown-up in our current Fort Wayne site and it served us well until now — we have literally grown up and out of space! With plans to double our staff over the next three years, we broke ground on a new space that would increase our footprint from 125,000 square feet to just over 200,000 square feet. The expansion will alleviate the tight quarters for our staff and allow us to take on more work. Only four months after steel was first erected, the exterior of the building is almost entirely enclosed and the exterior concrete and asphalt is also in the last stages.
This new building will be home to the Fort Wayne team and the world’s finest machines for efficient and high quality trade show and museum exhibit fabrication. State of the art fabrication equipment for high-end sand blasting, painting, and dust evacuation recently arrived at the new site, and a new CNC machine and a large-format flatbed graphics printer are arriving next.
As a company that designs and builds environments, we enlisted our own talent to create a work space that reflects Group Delphi’s personality. Mark Pearlman, our senior director of design, has provided incredible insight and direction on all aspects of the interior design. Many of the elements will be built by Group Delphi employees to highlight our design skills, fabrication techniques, and fabrication quality. From the offices, lobby and break-room to the department walls in our production department, the walls are giving a great sense of the magnificence of the facility.
“We knew we wanted something that not only we could be proud of, but that the community could be proud of,” said Matt Fortney, Group Delphi’s local vice president and general manager, in a recent interview with the Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly.
Our new facility will be located at 12915 Stonebridge Rd in Roanoke, IN 46783, not far from Fort Wayne International Airport. Our phone numbers will stay the same, so it should be as easy as ever to reach us.
Thanks goes out to our great employees and their dedication to delivering insanely good service to our clients. We look forward to hosting and toasting you all when we open in early 2015.
