Banyan Technology, the leading provider of live carrier and API connectivity for transportation management, announces its relocation from Elyria, Ohio to Westlake. The move was necessitated by its growing business and staff, according to company leadership.
“The new location brings us together,” explains Lance Healy, co-founder and chief innovation officer for Banyan Technology. “It provides an open layout for increased collaboration, as well as additional square footage, that’s going to be more functional and accommodate ongoing growth.”
This open layout replaces its former space within Lorain County Community College’s Richard Desich SMART Commercialization Center for Microsystems, which saw the organization expand across multiple offices and floors.
“It’s bittersweet, as Lorain County has been an exceptional place to grow; the whole community really rallied around us, from our early days,” Healy says. “But Westlake is actually where we started Banyan in 2001, so it’s also like going back to our roots.”
Founded with a staff of three, Banyan Technology can boast that it introduced API carrier connectivity to the transport industry in 2001 before anyone had ever heard of it. Today, the company employs more than 50 associates and serves 33,000 unique users — with more than 1,400 LTL, LT and parcel carrier connections established and more than 1,000 local carriers.
Through ongoing innovations to its connectivity platform, the company has experienced record growth over the past two years — and is on track to do so again this year, says Brian Smith, Banyan Technology CEO.
“We’re very excited, as this move aligns well with our organization’s growth plans,” he says. “Moving to one continuous environment will not only make us more efficient operationally, but put us in a position to collaborate better. Our clients and employees alike are going to benefit from that, and enjoy a more central location with regard to Northeast Ohio.”
Banyan Technology’s new headquarters is located at 31011 Viking Parkway, Westlake, OH 44145, off Interstate 90.
