A 27,000-square-foot campus will meet the needs of rapid expansion
HOUSTON, September 24, 2020 – When Jon Farley launched ZTERS Site Solutions in 2009, he brought decades of waste industry experience to the table, and he knew he could improve the customer experience. He also knew he could build a company that would provide jobs and grow over time. Ten years later, the family-run company has opened a new 14,000-square-foot headquarters which will anchor its corporate campus in northwest Houston. The campus includes a second 6,000-square-foot office building and a 7,000-square-foot fitness studio.
“We have a strong presence in our neighborhood,” Farley says of the campus. “We provide well-paid jobs with a full range of benefits not only to local people, but we’re attracting new people to the area.”
ZTERS was named a Houston Chronicle Best Workplace in 2019 and is up for the award again in 2020. The company’s growth also landed it on the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies list for the second year running in 2020.
“ZTERS has grown tremendously over the last 10 years, selling services the way our customers want to buy them, and the trend towards online purchasing continues to accelerate. ZTERS is still a small fish in a very big ocean, but we continue to innovate and excel with the tools and services we provide our customers and vendors,” Farley says.
The company reached another milestone this year – employee number 100 was hired. Employees went remote during the pandemic, with most employees still working from home as of September 2020. When the pandemic struck, ZTERS invested in telecommunications technology to keep people employed and to continue business operations throughout the COVID-19 shutdowns.
The new headquarters is built, but it may be a while before all employees are back in the office. In the meantime, operations continue remotely, and the new fitness center is available for use (with proper social distancing and following all health and safety guidelines). However, growth has been strong, even in 2020, and the new building will enable more employees to come on board.
