Hutto, Texas — The City of Hutto and Titan Development announce the relocation of BryComm, LLC headquarters to Hutto at Innovation Business Park. This is the latest in a series of important real estate developments located in Hutto, representing the ongoing commitment by city leaders and business entities to foster the growth of the city.
“BryComm plans to build a 30,000-square-foot building to serve as their headquarters and warehouse space, invest more than $4 million in the facility, grow to 200 jobs within five years and bring more than $1 million in net revenue to the City," said City Manager Odis Jones. "In exchange, the City will provide 45 percent of ad valorem taxes levied by the City on the property and improvements for a period of ten years.”
The company intends to acquire 6.53 acres at Titan’s Innovation Business Park, hoping to break ground in February 2019 and open operations by September 2019.
“We’re very excited about our partnership with the City of Hutto, the interest we are seeing at Titan Innovation Business Park, and the amount of public/private capital investment and new jobs we are seeing as a result of our partnership," said Kevin Reid, founding member of Titan Development and Chairman of the Board. "Light industrial businesses see the potential in Hutto given its large, educated workforce and easy access to major markets.”
BryComm's more than $4 million investment on the new facility includes the land purchase, planning, relocation expenses, equipment and construction. The company plans to initially employ 110 people, reaching 200 employees within five years. This growth marks a continued trajectory, as BryComm has expanded from its original 5 employees to more than 100 today and was twice recognized in Austin Business Journal’s Fast 50 (#10 in 2015 and #2 in 2016) as well as ranked 980 in the 2016 Inc. 5000 list. This rapid expansion has caused the company to outpace the capacity of its current 10,000-square-foot building in Austin and begin shopping for a new home for its headquarters and warehouse. BryComm also has a satellite office and warehouse in San Antonio that will be unaffected by the Austin headquarters move.
"Having tripled in size, we needed a location that could accommodate our existing personnel and operations needs while leaving room for future growth," said Brymer. "We scouted locations in Round Rock, Pflugerville, Austin, and Cedar Park. Ultimately, Hutto provided the type of facility we needed with the opportunity costs and cooperation from the city that would ensure a mutually beneficial relationship."
“Brycomm’s decision to retain its operations in the Greater Austin Region and build on its success and expand into Hutto speaks volumes about our region’s workforce, business climate, and attractiveness to job creators,” said Charisse Bodisch, Senior Vice President of Economic Development of the Austin Chamber of Commerce.
Settling into its new home this fall, BryComm's next challenge will be finding the high-skilled technicians needed to continue to grow its workforce. With 70 percent of its personnel positions requiring specialized training, this task remained in the back of Brymer’s mind as he eyed the future facility at Innovation Business Park within walking distance of potential recruits studying at TSTC.
BryComm is a technology infrastructure provider with unparalleled experience in the design, installation and maintenance of data and fiber optics for inside and outside plant infrastructures, security technologies and audio/visual systems. Brymer and his team are continually pushing the threshold of higher standards, which ultimately drives their passion for excellence.
Innovation Business Park, a 72-acre business park that will be home to approximately 800,000 square feet of space at complete buildout, broke ground in November 2017 and began the first phase of construction with 150,000 square feet of business spec space for one to four tenants. In August, Paradigm Metal, Inc. announced its relocation from Austin to Innovation Business Park, building a 100,000-square-foot headquarters to accommodate 250 employees, growing to 400 employees within ten years.
“Hutto has a small-town feel with big-town opportunities and is quickly building its economic capacity with a strong business, retail and residential base within the greater Austin marketplace,” Jones said. “We welcome BryComm, Paradigm, AEND, JRS, The Co-Op District, and many more businesses that are choosing to invest in our community."
