Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
G4S is moving its St. Paul, Minnesota offices to the First National Bank Building, 332 Minnesota Street, Suite N205, bringing new jobs and supporting the economic development of downtown St. Paul.
“G4S has more than 550 employees in the St. Paul field office,” said Isaac Luten, G4S General Manager. “On average, we hire approximately 75 people per year in our St. Paul office and our employees attend annual and ongoing training here, so our offices will be very active. We couldn’t be happier to call downtown St. Paul home to our Minnesota office.”
G4S worked closely with St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman’s office. “We support G4S in its efforts to bring livable wage jobs with good benefits to St. Paul,” said Mayor Chris Coleman. “Anytime a company can inject new energy into downtown commercial real estate and bring jobs to our city, it’s a win for everyone.”
G4S has entered into a multi-year lease agreement after working with the St. Paul Building Owners and Managers Association, (BOMA). “Leasing office space in downtown St. Paul helps preserve the economic value of our city” said Matt Anfang, president of St. Paul BOMA. “It’s especially important to us in difficult economic times.”
The new G4S offices are located directly across from a proposed new stop on the Central Corridor Light Rail Transit Project, which is scheduled to link downtown St. Paul and downtown Minneapolis via the state Capitol and the University of Minnesota. Service is expected to begin in 2014.
“Part of the reason we chose our new location was its proximity to transit,” said Martin Conroy, G4S Manager of Business Development. “It will mean easy access for employees, our human resources department and training center because they can choose transportation on the new light rail line.”
G4S has been an integral part of the St. Paul community for 43 years, but it is the first time the security company will have its offices in the downtown commercial center.
