Louisville, KY – Appriss Inc. announced today that they will move their Louisville-based employees to a new location at 9901 Linn Station Road, in eastern Jefferson County, in mid-2018− a move that will combine two existing office locations and bring all employees together into a single workplace.
“We believe our employees are some of the most talented in the area,” stated company CEO Michael Davis. “They are focused on our work that keeps victims safe, helps law enforcement catch the bad guys, and supports our health providers as they fight the opioid crisis.”
“Appriss is a leading employer in Kentucky whose innovative technology serves the law enforcement, justice, security and healthcare communities,” Gov. Matt Bevin said. “Its expansion and relocation will provide greater growth opportunities in the years ahead. We look forward to watching the new Appriss building go from conception to completion. We are grateful to have Appriss thriving in Kentucky and thank its leaders for their continued commitment to Jefferson County and for their latest creation of excellent new jobs.”
“It’s an exciting day when a local business announces it is growing its high-wage jobs and expanding its services here in Louisville,” said Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. “Appriss’ expansion allows us to apply innovative healthcare and public safety-focused solutions at a local level. I applaud its founders and its employees, and I look forward to seeing its continued growth.”
“The announcement of the Appriss retention/expansion project in Jeffersontown could not come at a more perfect and thankful time of year. Through our local Jeffersontown Occupation Business Saving (JOBS) Program inducement we were able to add an extra incentive towards the corporate consolidation for jobs currently in the Commonwealth, but not yet in Jeffersontown, in addition to the organic growth the company expects,” stated Mayor Bill Dieruf, of Jeffersontown. “We appreciate all involved in this initiative, including the Commonwealth of Kentucky and Louisville Metro that were able to also partner with Appriss and enable the City of Jeffersontown to add our JOBS Program to the incentive mix. City Council and I welcome all the new Appriss corporate employees to what will be the “Appriss Building” at 9901 Linn Station Road and thank those that have been with us since the company began.”
Appriss engaged CBRE Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBG), a Fortune 500 commercial real estate and investment firm, to assist in this transaction. CBRE’s David Hardy represented Appriss, while CBRE’s Marc Barlow represented the landlord, Gearing Capital Partners.
This buildout includes renovations on building entrances, the lobby and signs, including exterior signage for Appriss. Building ownership will also be adding new spaces for Appriss that include a new fitness area, conference center, and an outdoor lounge. Appriss has been working with Swope Design Group over the course of several months in preparing for this new space.
“We are excited to design and build out 105,000 square feet of space that will be transformational in how more than 400 of our local team members work. We are making a significant investment in technology, state-of-the-art design, office furniture, and meeting and collaboration areas to align with how our teams work locally and with our other offices,” stated Jeff Byal, Appriss Chief Financial Officer. The Appriss name on the top of the building will be visible from both I-64 and Hurstbourne Lane.
