ROUND ROCK, Texas – Odyssey Technical Solutions, LLC; a leading repairer of RF (radio frequency), MW (microwave), and DC (direct current) equipment primarily used in the semiconductor manufacturing industry; will be expanding in Round Rock with a new 32,000 sq. ft. facility.
“I am extremely pleased to announce our commitment to building our headquarters and technology center here in Round Rock.” Jim Plourde, president of Odyssey Technical Solutions said. “It was a pleasure to work with the Round Rock Chamber to identify our ongoing role in the business growth of the city. We truly appreciate the welcoming business environment and investment made by the City of Round Rock to make this happen. We are eager to move through the next steps of this project and look forward to moving into Odyssey’s new company home.”
Currently located in the Round Rock extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ), Odyssey has purchased land and recently broke ground on a facility within the Round Rock city limits. The new company headquarters will be located at the Altman Business Park, an upscale business park in the heart of Round Rock’s fastest-growing commercial area.
“Altman Development Group (ADG) worked very closely with Odyssey to provide a true build-to-suit world headquarters based on ADG’s fifty-five years of manufacturing knowledge. ADG and Odyssey worked countless hours to complete their specific plan before a dollar changed hands. ADG is truly honored to have the confidence of Odyssey to build their new world headquarters,” said Mitch Altman, president of Altman Development Group.
Odyssey is investing $5.4 million in land, building, and personal property and they will move all fifty-four of their current employees to the new location. Odyssey will be located at 2000 Steam Way, Round Rock, Texas 78665 and is scheduled to make the transition in May of 2016.
“Odyssey Technical Solutions is a unique and valuable company that we have always considered to be part of our Round Rock business community, but we are excited for them to expand into the city limits when they could have chosen to go elsewhere. This project is just another example of the quality growth we are seeing in Round Rock and the value of the partnership between the city, chamber, and our businesses,” Round Rock Mayor Alan McGraw said.
Odyssey Technical Solutions was opened in 2000 by Air Force veteran Plourde and Eric Nail. They have completed well over 30,000 repairs in their fifteen years in business and have grown from their initial 1,500 sq. ft. building.
“We have been working with Odyssey Technical Solutions for several years and are very happy that they have decided to expand in Round Rock,” said Ben White, the chamber’s vice president of economic development. “This is a prime example of our business expansion efforts directly producing an increase in economic growth for our community.”
