Granite adds 50 jobs in Rhode Island

Granite Telecommunications, LLC, a provider of communications solutions to businesses, has tripled the size of its office in Lincoln, Rhode Island and intends to add a minimum of 50 new sales, tech, leadership and customer support positions, the company said.

After a sixth consecutive year of adding USD 100m or more in revenue, Granite has already outgrown the Albion Crossing office it opened in December 2013 and will be shifting its Rhode Island operations to a new 23,000 square foot space at the same address with room for over 250 employees.

The new, larger location is the latest in a string of expansions for Granite, which within the last 12 months has purchased a third office tower at its Quincy, MA headquarters, opened a new office in Orlando, FL and expanded its existing work spaces in West Palm Beach, FL and Atlanta, GA.

Granite has continued to reinvest in Rhode Island due to the state´s skilled labor pool who are capable of selling communications products and services into complex businesses and providing top-rate service to Granite´s customers.

Granite provides voice, data and other communications products and services to multi-location businesses and governmental agencies throughout the United States and Canada. Granite furnishes services to more than two-thirds of the Fortune 100 companies in the United States, and 1.5m voice and data lines under management. Granite employs over 1,750 people at the company´s headquarters in Quincy, MA and offices in Atlanta, GA, Chicago, IL, Dallas, TX, Miami, FL, New York, NY, Orlando, FL, and Lincoln, RI.
