“Previously, our Intersystems team was scattered among four separate buildings in two locations throughout the Omaha area,” said ESI president and CEO, Walter Greig. “With the construction of our new facility, we’re able to have all 150 employees for both plant and office operations in one location with space for future growth. This project wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did without the help of the Greater Omaha Chamber.”
ESI contacted the Chamber’s Greater Omaha Economic Development Partnership in 2006 as they began investigating options to consolidate the Intersystems division. Site locations under consideration at that time included Omaha, Council Bluffs, and Houston.
“Our new building was designed to reflect the ESI and Intersystems forward-thinking business model,” added Greig, “which incorporates world class manufacturing concepts with environmental, health and safety considerations resulting in an efficient, creative, and comfortable work environment for our team members.”
“Intersystems commitment to invest in Greater Omaha demonstrates our city’s ability to support large manufacturing-based operations,” said David G. Brown, president and CEO of the Greater Omaha Chamber. “Their decision to remain in Omaha is another example of an established company choosing to take advantage of our thriving business environment as well as a testament to the hard work put forth by our economic development team.”
