Officials in Scott County are set to cut the ribbon Tuesday on the new 360 Networx headquarters in Scottsburg. Financial details were not disclosed, however the telecommunications service company says the facility, located in the Mid-America Science Park, will serve as its first multi-service hub.
The facility houses the company's administration and executive level staff offices and also serves as a staging and deployment location for its phone, cable, and network engineers and technicians.
A spokesperson for 360 Networx tells Inside INdiana Business the location will allow the company to do more than $2 million of business this year. The company says it is now looking toward potential future expansion, including a possible satellite location in the northern part of the state.
The company currently employs 12 in Scott County and says it is looking to hire more in 2018 as it grows its client base.
360 Networx officials will be joined by representatives from the city, the Greater Scott County Chamber of Commerce and One Southern Indiana for the ribbon cutting ceremony. The event is scheduled for 5:00 p.m.
