Cogistix Poised for More Growth at New Headquarters
BOARDMAN, Ohio – Cogistix LLC guided its customers through the company’s new 15,000-square foot office building at an open house Wednesday evening to celebrate the company’s move to the former Hill Barth & King building at 7680 Market St.
Cogistix, established in 2009, resells and codes management software for manufacturers. The company purchased the building in December for $840,000 and began renovations to accommodate its staff of 30.
Kevin Miller, founder of Cogistix, says growth was “constrained because of not having the proper facilities for our employees to come to work.” About half the staff had to work at home, he explains. “Now all 30 employees can come into one location. But more importantly, it’s a pace for customers to get classroom-based training on the products we sell and implement for manufacturers.”
Cogixtix also operates an office in Charlotte, N.C., and has sales representatives in seven states.
“We have customers from Florida to New Jersey, Texas and California,” Miller says. “We help manufacturers become more efficient by implementing software that helps every functional group or area within their company.”
Last year Inc. magazine ranked Cogistix the 1,522nd fastest-growing company in the United States, and the 38th fastest-growing company in Ohio out of the 170 businesses statewide that made the list.
About 100 customers and prospects toured the new headquarters, which is “four times” larger, Miller says, than the company’s former offices in the South Bridge Executive Park here. On display were items made by some of the company’s customers such as Great Lakes Brewing in Cleveland and a Cincinnati producer of ice cream.
Building renovations should be complete in the next few weeks, Miller says. Flooring must still be finished and glass walls installed for some doors and offices.
“We’re very excited to have a facility that will allow for more growth.”
