AlloSource Opens New Headquarter Campus Marking Continued Success in Meeting its Mission to Responsibly Process and Distribute Life-Saving, Life-Enhancing Human Tissue
New facility adds to the local Colorado economy through construction and job creation
CENTENNIAL, Colo., Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — AlloSource, one of the nation’s largest non-profit providers of skin, bone and soft tissue allografts for use in surgical procedures and the world’s largest processor of cellular bone allografts, today celebrated the opening of its new headquarter campus in Centennial, Colorado.
In a challenging economy, AlloSource continues to expand and support the Colorado community through responsible growth. In 2011, AlloSource grew its staff by more than 10 percent. To better compensate its growing workforce, AlloSource broke ground on a 90,000 square-foot building addition in May, 2011, nearly doubling the size of its headquarter campus and allowing for remote Denver-based offices to be consolidated under one roof.
“Ultimately, this new state- of- the- art headquarters means we can innovate and do more with the gift of tissue donation,” said Thomas Cycyota, President and CEO of AlloSource. “Our new building allows us to streamline processes by housing all departments under one roof. It also gives us more room to grow, innovate and honor the gift of donation by bringing all of our associates back together.”
AlloSource provides employment for more than 370 people in Colorado and more than 30 positions at satellite offices around the United States. Since 2010, AlloSource has added 77 positions in Colorado and at their locations across the country. The AlloSource workforce continues to grow, allowing the company to create jobs and improve patient care.
“Doing More With Life is AlloSource’s motto. With this new facility we aim to do just that,” said Suzanne Conrad, Chair of the AlloSource Board of Directors. “The creativity and innovation that thrives at AlloSource will only improve as AlloSource’s employees work together under one roof.”
The construction of the new headquarters employed more than 500 local skilled workers, was designed by Intergroup Architects and built by The Weitz Company. In total, close to $20 million was injected into the local economy as a result of the project.
“To have the third largest tissue bank in the United States right here in Centennial is extraordinary,” said Cathy Noon, Mayor of Centennial. “Having a thriving company employing local workers and bringing business to Centennial and Colorado at large is exactly what we need to keep our great city on the map.”
AlloSource makes it a chief priority to give back to its communities, contributing millions of dollars in the form of charitable contributions that support organ and tissue donation programs in communities across the country.
