Xpanxion will be leasing up to 65,000 sq. ft. of space in downtown Sidney, NE and will be providing up to 200 jobs for the community. These new jobs for the Sidney area will feature professional opportunities focused on both technology and healthcare platform services. Xpanxion and UST Global will invest in training the local workforce in healthcare operations and envision partnering with industry and academia in the Sidney area to collaborate and strategize on developing highly capable local talent that can satisfy the future needs of its healthcare and other technology and digital practices.
Along with the recent opening of a new Rural Delivery and Executive Briefing Center in Kearney, NE, the opening of this new center in Sidney once again extends and reinforces Xpanxion's commitment to Rural Sourcing and rural communities by further expanding its current rural delivery and services ecosystem across Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Arkansas and Ohio. Incorporating US-based rural talent into its global services delivery strategy continues to be a focus for Xpanxion, allowing Xpanxion to provide an optimal cost and capability model for its Clients through its Rural Sourcing and global Cross-Sourcing™ models.
"With this new investment in Sidney, Xpanxion continues to create high quality, high paying jobs in Nebraska, adding to our state's fast-growing reputation as a home for the Silicon Prairie tech industry. Thanks to our world-class workforce, Nebraska is the best place in the world to do business, and a destination that high-profile companies like Xpanxion call home," said Pete Ricketts, Governor of Nebraska.
"Xpanxion's commitment to providing an unmatched level of service by rural and global cross-sourcing extends even further with the opening of the new Rural Delivery and Services Center in Sidney, Nebraska. We remain fully dedicated to our vision of being a trusted digital technology solutions and innovation partner to our clients and will work tirelessly to do so by leveraging the best and brightest talent. This new center in Sidney embodies Xpanxion's pledge to continuously invest in the rural community and will be a remarkable addition to our global footprint in the tech industry," said S. Ramprasad, President of Xpanxion.
Xpanxion was attracted to Sidney by the workforce talent available in the area and by a Bass Pro Shops initiative and incentive to create jobs in the Sidney area. Earlier this year, Bass Pro announced its plans to donate unused office buildings at a highly subsidized cost to qualified employers with the goal of attracting employers and creating significant new jobs in the community. Bass Pro Shops continues to aggressively market its offer as well as showcase the opportunity to its extensive vendor network and business partners. Bass Pro's commitment to Sidney has also included support for local education programs in the community.
"We're very excited to welcome Xpanxion to Sidney and look forward to the significant jobs they will bring to the community," said noted conservationist and Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris. "We hope other companies follow in the footsteps of Xpanxion's leadership team in recognizing the incredible leasing opportunity and talented workforce available in this community. We remain strongly committed to supporting the people of Sidney moving forward."
"We are incredibly excited and proud of the opportunity to bring digital healthcare services jobs to a new area of Nebraska. The explosive growth of our Healthcare Platform business over the past couple years means UST Global is always looking for access to great talent which is what lead us to Sidney!" said Kevin Adams, President, UST Healthcare Platform Solutions.
"The City of Sidney is excited to welcome Xpanxion to the community. The new opportunities and jobs they will bring to the residents of Sidney couldn't come at a better time. Working with their team on the expansion to Sidney has been a great experience.
