Helion Technologies, a leading information technology (IT) managed services provider, is expanding its Dallas operations and moving into a newly renovated facility in Garland, TX. The expansion is part of Helion’s long-term, strategic plan to better support its customer base of retail automotive and heavy-duty trucking dealerships nationwide.
“Due to the unprecedented growth we’ve experienced in the past few years, we’ve decided to invest in a new facility,” said Erik Nachbahr, CISSP and founder and president of Helion. “The Dallas location allows us to better service our West Coast customers with expanded technical support hours and a faster on-site response team.”
Helion provides end-to-end IT services to more than 28,000 end users at 700 automotive and heavy-duty trucking dealerships. The company’s headquarters is based in Timonium, MD.
In Dallas, Helion currently employs a staff of 35 technicians in a 3,000-square-foot office. The new Helion-owned facility is 22,000 square feet with two floors and can accommodate up to 150 staff members.
In recent months the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has gained national attention due to its thriving tech industry, and is home to 43% of the state’s high-tech workers. When combined with factors like a growing population, low cost of living and affordable housing, the area offers a hub of talent from which Helion can hire and train.
“The Dallas-Fort Worth area offers many opportunities for high-tech workers, so we are committed to offering competitive pay, excellent benefits packages, career advancement opportunities and a fun working environment in order to attract and retain talent,” said Lucas Johnson, Helion’s VP of human relations.
Helion is actively hiring Dallas-based employees for its service desk operations, including desktop technicians and system administrators. Additionally, Helion is expanding its project management team with plans to add project managers, engineers and architects.
