QUINCY, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Granite Telecommunications, LLC, a provider of telecommunications, data, networking and other communications and alarm services, announced today it has officially opened its new sales office in West Palm Beach, Fla. The new office will accommodate a sales force more than four times the size of the organization’s former sales office in the state, which was located in Boynton Beach.
“During the first half of this year, Granite has had record sales, topping $850 million in annualized revenue,” said Rand Currier, Chief Operating Officer of Granite. “With our continued rapid growth comes the immediate need to increase our sales force. Our existing office in Florida could not accommodate our expansion, so we set out to find office space that would house not only those sales professionals we are currently seeking to hire, but also allow further expansion of that sales force as we project this growth to continue.”
Florida is just one of a number of areas where Granite is expanding. In March, the company, which has grown from 780 employees in 2011 to over 1,000 employees today, announced the purchase of the 125,000-square-foot office building adjacent to its existing corporate headquarters located just outside of Boston. The organization is also currently working to expand its sales offices in New York and Rhode Island.
Granite’s former Florida sales office was home to just over a dozen sales professionals; however, the company is seeking to hire up to 35 new sales professionals for that office immediately. Its new sales office, which is located at 450 South Australian Avenue in West Palm Beach, will be able to accommodate more than 60 personnel in total.
