MIDDLETOWN, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mediacom Communications Corporation today announced plans to build its new corporate headquarters on a 200 acre site in Blooming Grove, NY. When completed in the fall of 2012, the 110,000 square foot facility will become the base of operations for Mediacom’s corporate staff, now located in Goshen and Middletown, NY, and will allow the Company to expand its local workforce in the coming years.
“We started with a vision of relocating to a state-of-the-art corporate park that reflected the high-tech nature of our business and that our employees would be proud to call home,” said Rocco B. Commisso, Mediacom’s Chairman and CEO. “Along the way, we received tremendous cooperation and encouragement from Town, County, State and Federal governmental officials, facilitating our decision to remain and build in New York. While the state of New Jersey made an extremely attractive offer to move there, Blooming Grove is an ideal location for our Hudson Valley based employees. It is my hope that Mediacom’s major capital investment in this project paves the way for accelerating economic development in Orange County.”
Commisso founded Mediacom in 1995 to acquire and develop cable systems in the nation’s underserved smaller communities. Together with his dedicated management team, Commisso engineered Mediacom’s dramatic growth, transforming it into the nation’s 8th largest cable operator with annual revenues of over $1.5 billion.
