Advanced Mission Systems moves headquarters to Charlotte
December 6, 2012 by Sarah
Advanced Mission Systems (AMS), a defense technology firm, recently purchased a large office building in Charlotte, where it intends to move its headquarters.
The building, which measures 21, 894 square feet, is located in southwest Charlotte on Whitehall Park Drive, near the intersection of Interstate 485 and Arrowood Road. The company intends to move its headquarters from Fort Mill to Charlotte sometime in the early part of next year.
The building is approximately three times larger than the company’s current location in Fort Mill on Altura Road. Jerry Snyder, who serves as president for AMS, said that the company employs approximately 25 workers. Snyder stated that one of the things he liked about the location was its proximity to the International Airport. He expressed his excitement about moving to Charlotte and, in reference to the move across the North Carolina/South Carolina border, he joked:
“We’re probably one of the few that are coming north versus heading south.”
As businesses and companies transfer headquarters to Charlotte or open new locations in the area, they will likely need business card printing and other printing services offered by local print companies so that they can establish themselves in a new area and provide updated information on printed materials. Some large companies may even elect to use digital business cards in an attempt to reach out to a wider audience.
AMS was cofounded in 2006 by Snyder and Kenneth Morrison. The two opened the company not long after leaving General Dynamics. The company has grown rapidly since its opening, thus contributing to the need for a larger space for the headquarters.
