The 14-year-old company has about 175 employees, and is looking to add 25 more employees over the next five years. The company received $2.9 million in financial investments over the next 15 years from the city of Mason, including property tax abatement.
Construction will begin on the building later this year, and should be completed by late 2015 or early 2016.
