Argo Translation has officially moved into its new headquarters at 1884 Johns Drive in Glenview, Illinois.
The 2,800-square-foot facility houses the company’s main corporate office and includes space for its project managers, sales, marketing and administrative team members. The new location features offices, a large conference room, a collaboration room, and a visually stunning town hall room with lunch and lounge areas, kitchen, and more collaborative space. Upgrades were made to the phone and server systems, fiber connectivity and redundancy; in addition, performance dashboards are now displayed throughout the building on large-screen televisions.
Argo spent 14 years in 1,600 square feet space in an office park on Ravine Way in Glenview, but “things were getting pretty cramped,” founder Peter Argondizzo said.
“I wanted to make sure we have good space to collaborate with co-workers, contractors, and clients. In this new space, employees can easily work in groups, and it invites them to take breaks, a very important part of working in a fast-paced environment like ours,” Argondizzo said.
The Johns Drive location has “room to grow,” he said, looking toward the future.
“Argo Translation is fun place to work; you can sense it when you walk in the door,” he said. “I feel this is the perfect environment for the type of work we do.”
The company maintains a satellite office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the city in which Argo was founded.
