"The location was near a couple of college campuses, and we have several student interns working for us so we're hoping to get more of the cream of the crop by being closer to a campus," said Jacob Proctor, Principal, Vector Structural Engineering.
Vector is working to develop engineering processes where projects can be broken down into smaller tasks, and their plan is to train interns to help with those tasks. Having an office located near campus will allow them to more efficiently grow this part of the business.
Eric Sumsion, a Senior Engineer who has been with the company for nearly 10 years, will lead the charge at this new location where there are currently 22 people working out of the office.
Orem, Utah, has a thriving economy and is home to numerous high-tech companies and educational institutions. It also offers parks, museums, shopping centers, outdoor recreation, and more.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to provide jobs to more engineering students, and the growth that we will be able to achieve as a company with this office," Proctor said.
