Alpha Technologies USA purchases Wilmington office building
Alpha Technologies USA, Inc., a U.S. based global provider of IT solutions and consulting services to Fortune 1000 corporations, is set to move into a six-story office building located at 704 N. King Street in the Wilmington central business district.
Alpha has acquired the facility and will occupy close to 45,000 SF over three floors. Existing tenants will remain, according to Rick Kingery, vice president of Colliers International. Kingery represented Alpha Technologies in their pursuit.
The IT company has offices in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, New Jersey, Washington, California and Texas and global offices in India, Poland and the Czech Republic. This is its first foray into the Delaware market.
Alpha will be offering “on-shore off-site” managed services to their clients who are looking for “on-shore” managed services with benefits of “off-shore”. In Addition, Alpha will create subject matter expert IT training center for new graduates. These services will create many local jobs to help social, economic, and cultural growth.
“This is an incredibly exciting event for the City of Wilmington,” said Kingery. “To have a leading, global technology company like Alpha select Delaware as their captive site over a multitude of other options is truly an indication that Delaware has the technology, workforce, transportation, and new housing infrastructure in place to attract new businesses and grow this highly sought after field.”
“Information technology is one of the world’s fastest growing industries, and we are very pleased to welcome to Wilmington one of the world’s leading providers of IT solutions and consulting services to a diverse and global clientele,” said Jeff Flynn, Wilmington’s economic development director. “Alpha Technologies recognizes that Wilmington is a city where businesses thrive and is a city that is quickly becoming a technology hub for established IT businesses as well as a base for technology entrepreneurs and start-ups. We are witnessing the development of a new business climate in our City and we couldn’t be more pleased.”
Financing for the project was arranged by Joseph McNally of TD Bank.
