Acme Tools Expanding Corporate Headquarters
GRAND FORKS, ND Acme Tools announces the planned expansion of its corporate headquarters in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The project includes a newly constructed addition that will feature a stunning new entrance, executive offices, boardroom, a large employee training room, and a new employee lunchroom. New offices, conference rooms, and open work areas will also be added as well as remodeling the current corporate offices.
The design of the new spaces focuses on the needs of Acme Tools employees providing the environment, technology, and comfort required to increase efficiency and productivity. The expansion increases the size of the corporate headquarters building to 15,000 square feet.
Acme Tools employees will attend manufacturer training and company training programs in the new 35-person training facility. Specifically designed to provide a unique learning environment for employees, the new training room will integrate advance-training technology.
The project also repurposes previous warehouse space to create new parking spaces and new green space.
"The additional space will allow us to have the entire corporate staff in the same building and provide for improved communication at all levels," said Steve Kuhlman, Vice President of Corporate Operations for Acme Tools. "This expansion provides needed space for all departments and in particular for the growth of our call center staff and the growing number of buyers supporting our online business."
Construction began late last year and is scheduled to be completed in September. The new corporate headquarters building is collocated with the Acme Tools store and Acme Rents in Grand Forks.
Kuhlman said, "One of our goals with this project is to expand our corporate presence in this location and in doing so revitalize this area along North Washington Street in Grand Forks."
