Aplus.Net is relocating its corporate headquarters from San Diego, California to Overland Park, Kansas, senior management announced today. Overland Park is a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri; the move is scheduled to take place in February, 2007.
“We’re committed to making Aplus.Net an even better place to work for our employees, while also preparing for an important and aggressive growth phase,” said Gabriel Murphy, CEO of Aplus.Net. “San Diego has served Aplus.Net extremely well in its formative years, and we leave it reluctantly and only out of necessity. However, our ability to recruit and retain talented employees has been hampered by the extremely high cost of living here, and after much careful consideration, we’ve decided that the best means of addressing this issue is relocation.”
“We’d like to offer our employees the highest possible quality of life at an advantageous cost of living, and Overland Park offers all that and much more,” Murphy added.
Overland Park is not only a suburb of the Kansas City metropolitan area but also a thriving and distinct city in its own right. The second largest city in Kansas, it’s also known for its low property tax rates, high quality of life, and affordable cost of living.
The move will include Aplus.Net’s Corporate Administration, Finance/Accounting, Engineering, Development, Marketing, Server and Domain Administration, and Dedicated Server Customer Care departments. Aplus.Net’s dedicated server data center will remain in San Diego. The Aplus.Net sales team will also stay in San Diego, moving to a new address in the same ZIP code in early 2007. No changes are planned for Aplus.Net’s Sofia, Bulgaria location.
