Avail Technologies Inc. is relocating its operations to 1960 Old Gatesburg Road, State College, Pa. The new 42,918-square-foot state-of-the-art building will house Engineering, Production, Support, Operations and Business Development all under one roof.
Specifically designed to accommodate concurrent customer visits for system demonstrations, and technically engineered to support real-time training and troubleshooting, Avail’s new headquarters provides the perfect platform for continued innovation focused on enhancing riders’ experiences at transit agencies across the nation.
Dorsey Houtz, co-founder and CEO of Avail said, “Now in our 16th year of operation, and having had steady controlled growth every year, Avail Technologies has outgrown our current facility. More than two years ago the employee owners of Avail set out on a mission to design and build a new headquarters that would not only facilitate long term growth, but would do so while fostering a creative, healthy and energetic work environment. This state of the art facility offers our employees on-site indoor and outdoor exercise facilities, bright and cheery collaboration spaces, the latest in technological innovations, and much more. This is truly an exciting time for Avail and I am confident that this move will not only have a positive impact on our staff, but it will also foster a swell of creativity and excitement that will spill over to our customer partners as well.”
The expanded production lab is designed to foster innovation and collaboration while streamlining processes, and a centrally located engineering and support area was created to help solve problems faster and more efficiently. From the bottom up the new Avail facility was designed by the employees based on the most effective workflow possible that will aid the company in furthering its mission to partner with its customers to revolutionize the adoption of ITS technology in public transit.
Avail plans to host an employee open house event in April to introduce the new facility to family and friends of the Avail staff.
