Columbus, OH – FacilitySource, a tech-enabled facilities management company providing management software, maintenance and support to more than 120,000 client locations nationwide, announced plans to expand its existing operations in the City of Columbus. FacilitySource, which serves national retail, banking, grocery and restaurant brands, is expanding to accommodate its rapid growth, after experiencing 50 percent growth over the last two years alone.

The company plans to add 272 jobs, nearly doubling the number of current local staff, and expand its facility by more than 32,000-square-feet. The project is contingent upon approval of state incentives, which will be reviewed later this month. JobsOhio is also expected to offer assistance, which would be announced after a final agreement is executed.

“Our Columbus expansion will enable us to keep up with the demands of our growing customer base,” said Bill Hayden, CEO, FacilitySource. “The Columbus Region’s central location allows us to easily access and serve our clients across the country.”

FacilitySource, founded in 2001, provides innovative solutions for the way companies manage and maintain their facilities by offering alternatives to traditional facility maintenance management. A portfolio company of Warburg Pincus, FacilitySource offers real-time facility support software, transaction centers for customer relations and service provider management, serving clients ranging from big box retailers, grocery stores, restaurants and more.

“The expansion of FacilitySource’s prominent Columbus operations highlights our region’s unique retail industry,” said Andrew J. Ginther, Mayor, City of Columbus. “And the area’s talent pool provides FacilitySource with a strategic advantage for continued growth.”

“Along with our partners at Columbus 2020, we are excited FacilitySource plans to continue its rapid growth in Central Ohio, where it will bring more than 270 new jobs,” said JobsOhio Managing Director for Information Technology Ted Griffith. “FacilitySource is a great example of a company embracing the digital age and growing in Ohio through the combination of excellence in customer service and innovative software solutions.”
