Columbus, Ohio – Stonecrop Technologies, a wireless network infrastructure company that provides innovative software and services to the telecommunications industry, has announced plans to invest millions in an assembly and fulfillment center in Grove City. The work at this facility, which will also serve as the company’s regional headquarters, will create more than 50 new jobs. Stonecrop’s national headquarters is in Petaluma, CA. This is its first location in the Columbus Region.
Stonecrop’s new 527,127-square-foot facility will be located at 3500 Southwest Boulevard. In addition to expanding product development and engineering staff, the tech company will utilize this operation to warehouse, assemble, test and configure telecom equipment for national distribution. Stonecrop is immediately hiring warehouse workers, supervisors, assembly technicians, telecom and supply chain engineers, data scientists and software developers.
“We’re helping our customers win the race to 5G. By improving our proximity to deployment projects in the north and northeast, we can better support rapid network densification,” said Stonecrop CEO & President Suzanne Kimbel. “Grove City’s prime location, the Columbus Region workforce and the growing tech talent base in the greater Columbus area are excellent advantages for us.”
The promise of a connected future requires increasingly complex networks that are capital intensive to build. Stonecrop leverages software, mobile tech and supply chain expertise to reduce the cost and time required to develop, build and maintain networks.
“We are excited to welcome an innovative West Coast company to Grove City,” said Grove City Mayor Ike Stage. “Stonecrop will offer a range of occupations to our capable workforce.”
“Stonecrop Technologies’ expansion in Grove City will bring new jobs to a facility that will help provide speed to market for high-tech products that we utilize every day,” said Ted Griffith, managing director for logistics and distribution, JobsOhio. “JobsOhio and One Columbus look forward to working with Stonecrop as it continues to grow in Ohio.”
