A business technology firm will soon move out of its northwest Rochester complex.
Marco Inc. plans to move out of its long-time Rochester headquarters at 3416 Lakeridge Place N.W. to another office complex at 1014 Bel Air Lane N.W., just off 37th Street, says Regional Sales Manager Judy Weller.
The plan is to make the move on Nov. 24 and Nov. 25. Marco, which is based in St. Cloud, has about 18 employees on staff in Rochester, according to Weller.
"We think this will be a more functional space for us," she said. "We have a large garage in our current building, which we never use."
Marco, which is employee-owned, plans to lease the new office space. It currently leases the Lakeridge Place complex from Jon Eckhoff. He built the 9,794-square-foot facility in 2005 for his company, Venture Computer Systems.
The St. Cloud company entered the Rochester market in 2009 when it bought Venture from Eckhoff. He retained ownership of the building. Eckhoff went on to serve as the executive director of the Rochester Downtown Alliance for five years and now works for Jaguar Communications.
Marco offers a wide array of technology services involving networking, telephone systems, video conferencing, IT consulting as well as selling printers and copiers. It has offices throughout the Midwest in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, South Dakota, North Dakota and Illinois.
