FEBRUARY 28, 2018 (WASHINGTON, D.C.) – On Thursday, February 22, Klas Telecom held a grand opening for its new Tampa, Florida office which has been established to facilitate the large volume of business the company performs in the area around MacDill Air Force Base. Klas Telecom executives, employees, solution partners and local customers gathered at the newly renovated office for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the occasion and celebrate the company’s progress. The new office will be dedicated to Klas Telecom Government, which is the U.S. entity that runs the defense business for the corporation.
“We spend an ample amount of time in the Tampa area and have been doing so for years,” John Gallagher, corporate CEO for Klas Telecom said. “And, with the more recent hiring of local Tampa personnel, it only made sense to open a brick and mortar location.”
The new space is outfitted with a training facility and lab for staging and integrating equipment. The office is equipped with a state-of-the-art virtual telepresence system in the conference room for interconnecting all Klas Telecom locations and is meant to facilitate collaboration between sales, engineering, R&D and other important departments.
“Our hope is that this new office serves our local customers,” Klas Telecom Government CEO David Huisenga said. “We plan to conduct product trainings and demonstrations in both classroom and hands-on styles and this new facility allows us to do both in close proximity to MacDill. We also plan to allow our industry partners to make use of this facility. We want to really create a connected community.”
