IT Cooperative Adding 33,000 Square Feet to Accommodate Continued Growth
Mandan, N.D., June 24, 2015 — National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC), a leading provider of technology solutions to utility and telecommunications organizations worldwide, officially broke ground today for their newest building at the Mandan, N.D. campus. This expansion will accommodate the current and projected growth of the IT cooperative as well as connect all buildings on the campus.
“Breaking ground on a larger facility reflects NISC’s commitment to our growing Membership and to North Dakota. We are very thankful for the community support we have received,” said Jasper Schneider, Vice President of Member Engagement at NISC
The groundbreaking was marked by speeches given by Vern Dosch, NISC President and CEO, John Smith, NISC Board of Directors Chairman, and Arlyn Van Beek, Mayor of Mandan. Smith, Van Beek as well as Jim Keller, NISC Team Lead Automated Mailroom Operations and Facilities, shoveled the ceremonial dirt to officially begin the $7.5 million project.
The event was attended by many NISC Mandan employees and members of the Bismarck-Mandan community. The Mandan location, one of four NISC campuses in the United States, has been the North Dakota campus of the technology cooperative since 1966 and is home to more than 400 employees. The Mandan facility will expand by 33,000 square feet in an effort to accommodate the demands of a growing organization, offering additional office space, meeting rooms, a dining facility and fitness center.
At NISC, employees focus on service excellence and innovative information technology solutions that enable their Member-Owners to excel in customer service, maximize diversification opportunities, and compete effectively in the changing utility and telecommunications industries. Due to the continued steady growth of the IT cooperation, NISC expects to add 70 employees over the next five years.
“The expansion of our Mandan campus will allow us to better serve our Membership and create a positive work experience for our employees,” said Dosch.
NISC will release more information on the expansion as the project progresses. For the most up-to-date information on our expansion, follow us on Twitter @NISC_Coop.
