New Northern Digital Head Quarters Fall 2016
Tuesday, June 23, 2015 written by Northern Digital
As part of our 28th year meeting control systems needs around the world, Northern Digital is in the process of building a new main headquarters facility. The facility will be approximately 14,000 square feet and located in the new Bolthouse Farm development, known as Seven Oaks Park, located in the Bakersfield, California.
One of the main objectives was to merge our two facilities, currently occupied by corporate, engineering, and technical services, under one roof. This will be the first time since our inception in 1988 that all three groups will be located in the same facility. “This has already generated huge excitement among our Bakersfield staff” says Larry Vasquez, CEO and founder of Northern Digital. Vasquez goes on to say “a facility is much more than brick and mortar; it is our home away from home. It is the place we spend much of our lives, and as such we want it to look and feel like our homes, warm and comfortable.”
Vasquez loves to talk about the culture that has been fostered over the years. He believes that it is what makes Northern Digital a high level control systems engineering company. When asked the question regarding what makes NDI special, Vasquez says “It’s simple: it’s our people. We love coming to work; the comradery and sense of unity is extraordinary.”
NDI is scheduled to move in September of 2016. “I’ve been here for nearly 26 years” says Operations Manager Bob Soto. “My kids have grown up while I’ve been part of the NDI team, and now my grandchildren are visiting Grandpa here at our office. I’m excited to share the next chapter of my life here at NDI with those I love.”
“This is a huge step in the life of our company” says Vasquez. “It is much like when my wife and I bought our first home some thirty five years ago. Picking out the carpets, and other amenities, as well as the “every other day” site visits is both exciting and fulfilling.”
More than just an office building; Vasquez says that the building will represent the many years of hard work and effort that fellow workers have poured into Northern Digital. He says that “in a way it stands as something tangible that allows people to look back at their careers with pride and say - I helped build this.”
