Billings, Montana (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
The Billings Chamber of Commerce and Yellowstone County Commissioners are coming together to recognize and congratulate one of the top 10 employers in Montana on their recent expansion. The Chamber’s Trail Blazer’s group will host an official ribbon cutting ceremony July 9th at the Billings Operations Center. Yellowstone County Commissioner, Bill Kennedy will offer a toast to the company’s growth and expansion.
“Rapid company growth is to credit for the expansion. Avitus Group is expanding quickly and we have outgrown our space once again. We’ve added 30+ jobs just since September and we believe needing more space is a good problem to have. We’re happy to grow right here in the city where we started our company. Billings has been a great fit for us.” -Don Reile, President Avitus Group, Inc.
Avitus Group now operates in 27,400 square feet on the 6th, 7th and 8th floors of the Wells Fargo Tower in downtown Billings. That is an expansion of nearly 9,000 square feet from a previous foot print of 18,400 square feet on floors 7 and 8.
“If you look back just 10 months ago we were in a smaller building on the west end of Billings, occupying only 13,800 square feet and employing significantly fewer operational specialists. Were very happy to be where we are today, providing such a valuable service to so many other businesses, not only in Montana, but nationwide and internationally. The idea of taking administrative hassles off the plate for a business is really catching on.” Ken Balster, President of Avitus Business Services, Inc.
