Evan Binns Reporter- St. Louis Business Journal
Netelligent used to be a relatively unfamiliar name in St. Louis.
But the company is becoming a household name in the high-tech industry. And it’s growing.
The company announced Jan. 10 that it was moving into 21,000 square feet of office space at Sachs Properties’ Chesterfield Village development, a $3 billion, 1,500-acre master-planned community in Chesterfield.
Netelligent’s move accommodates the company’s recent growth, which can be gauged by annual revenue of $33 million in fiscal 2012 and the addition of about 24 people during the same year, bringing the company’s total head count to 70.
The company’s new headquarters will be located at 16401 Swingley Ridge Road. It was previously headquartered nearby in 9,000 square feet of space at 400 South Woods Mill Road.
Designed by Nehring Design, Netelligent’s new digs will feature a private workout room, a recreation and a game room.
Stone, president and CEO of Netelligent, said the move would help the company boost its size, with plans to employ 140 people by 2017.
And those employees are young professionals that the metro area is looking to attract, according to Jamie Marx, leasing director at Sachs. “There is a market for young, well-educated, good paying jobs here,” Marx told the Business Journal. Chesterfield Village has a current occupancy rate of almost 99 percent, with only 1,500 square feet of space still available, Marx said.
Matt Aljets of Jones Lang LaSalle represented Netelligent. Netelligent’s move is the latest news from the company. In October, Netelligent announced that it opened a third data center, in Singapore.
The company already had two existing data centers, in St. Louis and in Denver.
