CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA (August 31, 2018) – United Services Group continues to grow with the purchase and build out of a state-of-the-art company headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Co-owners, Josh Armstrong and Stephen Gillman cut the ribbon on the opening of the new official home of United Energy and United Technical Services in August 2018. The new company headquarters located in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina allows United’s core business to grow further with the ample space to bring on additional shop fabrication, welding, and machining projects in-house.
During the company ribbon-cutting ceremony, Stephen Gillman, Chief Operating Officer, provided us with some background on the tremendous growth of United Services Group. “It’s been five long years of hard work by every member of our team. Without the hard work and consistent effort of everyone who has worn the United blue we wouldn’t be here.” Stephen continued, “every one of us played a vital role in the growing of this business. Josh (Armstrong) and I are extremely blessed with the staff we have built around us. Without each member of Team United, we wouldn’t have reached this point as quickly as we have.”
United’s new 17,000 square foot facility provides much-needed space for our growing business. Plans for the facility have included the build-out of a weld test facility, a state-of-the-art fabrication, and machine shop, as well as the growth of an equipment rental fleet to service the power industry. Many of these projects began breaking ground the day the facility was acquired. Additionally, all corporate employees have moved and are officially working out of the new headquarters.
“As we continue to grow, we wanted the capacity that mirrored our daily drive for service excellence. This new company headquarters allows us the ability to expand aspects of our business and introduce and add new services. Additionally, it allows us to grow exponentially.” Chief Executive Officer, Josh Armstrong shared this vision of the new space during the ribbon cutting ceremony, “we now have the space to grow our equipment rental business and have started building out a full-scale weld test facility. Moreover, with the location still being in the heart of Charlotte, we are still close to the epicenter of the power industry which allows us the opportunity to continue serving our core customers.”
The new facility features ample office space for future growth. Work has competed on upgrading the new conference room, as well as the designated office space for project management and field support staff while they are in the facility. Additionally, United has created a few remote office spaces for clients and customers who are traveling into the Charlotte metro area. Josh Armstrong gave us a few more details about the potential of these new spaces “The size of this facility allows us to bring customers in for demos, bring on larger scale fabrication projects, provide additional continuity testing and training to our craft, and allows us the ability to rent our fabrication shop to customers and clients who need a facility.”
The team is already hard at work at converting the current spaces to fit the needs of United Services Group. Stephen Gillman provided us with an update on the current state of the build out. “The facility was already a great fit for us, it was fundamentally move-in ready when purchased. The few areas that didn’t work for the previous owners, we have already started being demoed and being transformed to provide us with additional workable space. The built out is already underway for the weld test facility, our rod room, as well as the moving in and organization of our equipment fleet. We are hoping to have this all completed by the end of the calendar year.”
Along with the new facility, United Services Group continues to diversify and provide additional services and products to the ever-growing power industry. United is committed to service excellence. Josh Armstrong summed it up best, “we built this business on a few core values that have provided this opportunity for growth. We made a commitment to employ the best in the industry and provide all our services with a focus on safety, quality, and affordability. This commitment has allowed us to be here today.”
The new company office headquarters is located at 2505 Hutchison-McDonald Road in Charlotte, North Carolina.
