T-Base Communications USA Inc., an Ottawa-based producer of billing statements, documents and textbooks in alternate formats such as Braille and large print, is expanding its Ogdensburg operations.
The company, located at 806 Commerce Park Drive in the Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authoritys Commerce Park, will hire 20 employees in 2014.
The company currently has 22 workers.
T-Base will also add 2,776 square feet to the 6,000 square feet that it currently rents from the authority.
Our client base is growing, U.S. Operations Manager Paula M. Woods said Tuesday. Our workload is increasing.
T-Base began operations in Ogdensburg in 2005 with two employees.
This is good, positive news for our local economy, John A. Rishe, OBPAs director of commercial and industrial development, said in a prepared statement. T-Base has been a long-term tenant of the authority and we are very pleased to be able to lease additional space to accommodate their growth in Ogdensburg.
T-Base also produces visually impaired-accessible documents in e-text and accessible PDF. Its clientele, according to Mrs. Woods, includes Fortune 500 companies and government agency organizations, all of which have a growing need for T-Bases expertise and technology.
If you cant see it, you cant use it, Mrs. Woods said.
T-Base Chief Executive Officer Jeff Potts agreed.
Our continued expansion will help us meet the growing demand for the timely delivery of alternate format communication materials to our U.S.-based customers, while providing additional employment in the area, he said. We have a great team and we are thrilled to be able to contribute to employment and economic growth in the state of New York.
The OBPA board approved T-Bases lease amendment at its Dec. 18 meeting.
The T-Base building was formerly occupied by the Jack and Jill Day Care Center.
