Today, as we battle the COVID-19 pandemic, for most of us, moving to a “new office” means relocating to our basement, appropriating the dining room table, or occupying an extra bedroom. But in late 2019, DISTek Integration’s excitement over our new digs referenced a traditional brick and mortar office building. Specifically, we eagerly relocated to Suite 420 at 3737 Woodland Ave. in West Des Moines.
DISTek has been offering engineering services in the Red River Valley for almost a decade now. During that time, we’ve seen our engineering team in Fargo grow from a single individual to a team of ten. We were definitely at capacity at our office up on the North side of Fargo, even having to go so far as putting a desk in the corner of our conference room to accommodate our team.
2015, I moved to the greater Milwaukee area to launch a new DISTek
office. At the time, I was the only employee in the area but we wanted a
temporary office we could use to accommodate our growth prospects in this
region. We managed the “growth” reasonably well, growing to 8 employees
here … but the “temporary” extended a little longer than expected. Though
we started with a 14-month sublease, we ended up staying for three and a half
years. That all changed in December when we moved to a new office
location. We packed up everything during the end of November and the
first part of December, then made the move on Friday, December 14.
