PHILADELPHIA, July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Fiberlink®, the leader in software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for secure mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM), today announced expanded offices in downtown Philadelphia. Mayor Michael Nutter will personally attend the ribbon cutting ceremony and speak at the event, scheduled for 2:00 p.m. Fiberlink's rapid growth in the mobile technology sector, powered by the popularity of iPads, iPhones and Androids with employees in the workplace, drives the need for additional office space.
With more than 1,000 new customers acquired in the last year, Fiberlink hired 100 new employees to support its rapidly expanding business. The company plans to continue this pace of growth and aggressive hiring to staff its new office in Philadelphia, which will accommodate more than 140 employees.
"Fiberlink and other small businesses are the key to economic growth in Philadelphia and our nation," said Mayor Nutter, who is also the president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors. "The growth potential and well-being of any city rests in its ability to retain and attract talented young professionals with the promise of good career opportunities. Fiberlink's continued success demonstrates how innovative technology companies can tap into this strong talent pool and thrive in our city. I thank Fiberlink for continuing to create jobs and promote economic growth in Philadelphia."
Fiberlink's new office space is located on the 20th (top) floor of Three Parkway, at 1601 Cherry Street. The nearly 30,000 square feet of space will accommodate the company's skyrocketing growth and expanding employee base. The well-known building in Philadelphia's skyline provides many conveniences for Fiberlink employees, including access to public transportation, spectacular views of the city and an on-site fitness center.
