October 6, 2011 1 Comment
After months of hard work, Direct Communications was able to open the doors to their new building on Campus Drive in Eagle Mountain in February, 2011. Our grand opening was held in June, along with the ribbon cutting of the Eagle Mountain City business incubator program.
In attendance were board members of the Lehi Chamber of Commerce, Eagle Mountain City Economic Development officials, the Mayor and the new business incubator tenants who will be starting up businesses as part of the partner program between the City and Directcom to encourage the growth of local businesses in Eagle Mountain
The building has 8 “pods”, or office spaces, approximately 2500 square feet each. Direct Communications houses four of the pods, Beyond Limits Physical Therapy occupies one pod, and the Eagle Mountain City incubator program has the remaining three pods. After working in two separate areas for several years, Direct Communications was excited to have all of their employees at the same location.
The private-public partnership between Direct Communications and Eagle Mountain City to create the incubator program is unlike any other project in the nation. Mayor Heather Jackson called it “complete and utter innovation. We have figured out our destiny, and we are opening our arms and inviting everyone here.” The program allows participants to lease office space for three years, at no cost during the first year. Business are given phone service and free internet services from Direct Communcations , along with a reception area, conference room, copy and fax equipment, av equipment, a break room, and janitorial services. “We help startups with the hopes that they will move into our City,” said Ifo Pili, Eagle Mountain City Economic Development Director.
Direct Communications is proud of the hard work and dedication they give to their customers. As Diane Bradshaw, Administrator for Direct Communications said, “having a new, professional building gives us the opportunity to show the customer we are dedicated to Eagle Mountain and are invested in our community. Customers love coming in to pay their bill and check out our new facility and our employees love coming to work everyday to our beautiful offices. Direct Communications is here to stay!”
