CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — ELynxx Solutions is moving its corporate headquarters into Kerrstown Square in downtown Chambersburg, Pa.
The company develops enterprise-level software for acquisition and management of print, direct mail, marketing, advertising and promotional materials.
The move capitalizes on technology infrastructure and ongoing improvements at the South Main Street location, the company said, and will bring approximately 20 professional technical positions to the downtown business district.
With Chambersburg roots dating to the early 1970s, eLynxx Solutions grew out of a consultancy business to become an innovator of specialty software as well as a pioneer in what today is known as cloud-based software.
This HQ move, with a target date of May 1, is the third for the company and marks its return to the borough’s core.
“Thirty years ago we purchased a building at Main and McKinley Streets,” company founder and chairman, Bill Gindlesperger said in a news release. “When we outgrew that space, we sold the building and leased space in the Chambersburg Area Development Corporation’s Chambers-5 business park.”
In that location, eLynxx Solutions continued to evolve, focusing on software creation and building its repertoire of print acquisition solutions used by enterprises including Fortune 500 companies, educational institutions and public sector organizations.
“CADC has been wonderful to work with for these past 14 years,” Gindlesperger said, “but now the time is right to make another move, and Kerrstown Square fits our current needs perfectly.”
Kerrstown Square’s high-tech infrastructure, loft-like architecture and authentic vintage details form a textbook-perfect idea of the downtown tech space eLynxx Solutions was seeking, according to a news release from the company.
Ready-to-adapt space where the Borough of Chambersburg was vacating its temporary location in the building, along with in-progress improvements including new elevator access, made the timing right for eLynxx Solutions to make its move.
“Kerrstown Square has a long history of being home to technology innovators. Besides being home to Chambersburg’s first internet service provider, it has also hosted the area’s first cyberschool, first online newspaper and several technology staffing and training companies,” Nathan Rotz, eLynxx Solutions CEO, said in the release. “We’’re happy to be continuing that tradition by making eLynxx Solutions the first cloud software company to call Kerrstown home.”
Rotz said the entire company is “looking forward to being part of the vibrancy and continued growth at heart of the community eLynxx Solutions has called home for nearly 45 years.”
Once the eLynxx Solutions move is complete, Kerrstown Square will be close to full occupancy, a status it has enjoyed several times over the years.
“Having a diverse mix of businesses is essential to a successful and lively downtown,” said Trish Hanks, Downtown Business Council president. “It’s also a key part of what leaves a great impression on visitors to downtown Chambersburg. A company like eLynxx Solutions will certainly be a contribution to the vitality and economy of our downtown as well as a welcome addition to the community of people invested in it.”
