People Driven Technology, an IT provider with offices in Grand Rapids, Indianapolis, and Columbus, Ohio, broke ground Aug. 17 on a new, $7 million, 28,000-square-foot technology hub in Wixom.
People Driven Technology provides IT solutions that allow customers to optimize, simplify, and scale technology needs through the complete product lifecycle, from planning to deployment and continued maintenance. Offerings include integrated and secure infrastructures, hybrid cloud computing solutions, cybersecurity, and physical security solutions (weapons detection, video surveillance, access control, etc.).
The hub, which will be located at 49070 Alpha Court, will feature offices, warehousing space, and a technology lab. It is designed to bring together employees, partners, and customers to collaborate and experience cutting-edge technology firsthand.
Expected to be completed in the spring of 2024, the facility will house 54 employees initially, with the goal of 75-plus employees by the end of 2025. The company has seen growth in market share since being founded in west Michigan in the spring of 2021.
“We are excited to be part of the Wixom community and bring these high-tech jobs to Oakland County,” says Bryan Teipel, president of People Driven Technology. “With over 500 customers in the Midwest, our expansion into Oakland County brings us closer to those we serve in the manufacturing, healthcare, government, and education sectors.”
The company currently services eastern Michigan from leased facilities in Farmington Hills and Novi. It is a family-owned business that focuses on consumable outcomes for its clients and, through its leadership, has decades of combined business, technology, and engineering experience.
People Driven Technology says it’s focused on developing the next generation of tech-based leaders through partnerships with local schools and its support for the Michigan Council of Women in Technology.
“Through a 7-mill tax abatement over 10 years with the city of Wixom and the MEDC, People Driven Technology has committed to bringing 75 jobs to Oakland County by 2025,” says Ajay Raman, Oakland County District 14 Commissioner. “The new facility and jobs are part of Oakland County’s strategic growth, which includes recognizing the future need for high-tech jobs within the region.”
The company also provides sales, service, and installation of computer and networking equipment through managed support services including maintenance and enterprise agreements.
