STARC Systems, Inc. one of the first businesses to locate at TechPlace on its opening in 2015, has successfully grown to need more space than TechPlace can provide. STARC Systems has moved their manufacturing operations into a 16,000 SF building of their own, located at 168 Orion Street; just a short distance from TechPlace. Bruce Bickford, Chief Operating Officer of STARC, said the company has doubled sales within the last year and expects to grow at a similar pace.
On Tuesday, October 24th, TechPlace staff and members held a graduation ceremony for STARC, which plans to continue leasing some office space for its sales and marketing staff.
