ND: Evolution1 Broke Ground on $8M, 40,000 Sq-Ft W. Fargo Office Building
23 Sep, 2015
Gov. Jack Dalrymple joined Evolution1 employees to break ground on the growing technology company’s West Fargo office building. A leading provider of cloud-based, consumer-directed healthcare and defined contributions payment solutions, Evolution1 has grown from a workforce of two to about 150 team members in the Fargo area.
“Evolution1 is another North Dakota success story and a great example of the leading innovation that is creating jobs and driving our continued economic growth,” Dalrymple said. “This building project will support Evolution1’s continued innovation and growth and it reflects our strong business climate and the ongoing economic development that sets North Dakota apart.”
Dalrymple joined Evolution1 leaders and other officials in breaking ground on a 40,000-square-foot office building that will bring all of the company’s local employees under one roof and support continued growth. Evolution1, a WEX company, provides technology solutions to 125,000 employer groups and more than 12 million healthcare consumers across the United States and Canada.
Evolution1 officials said North Dakota’s positive business climate and strong state support, including its workforce development services, played an important role in the company’s decision to build in West Fargo. The company also has offices in Edina, Minn., Hartford, Conn., and St. Louis, Mo.
Those joining Dalrymple to break ground on the $8-million project included Evolution1 Senior Vice President and General Manager Jeff Young, WEX, Inc. President and CEO Melissa Smill, U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and West Fargo Mayor Rich Mattern.
