Data Dimensions buys Rockford company
Data Dimensions said Monday that is buying Ogilby Transfer & Storage, a storage facility in Rockford, Ill.
Data Dimensions is a second-generation, privately held company. It serves a variety of industries with digital conversion; data capture, imaging and indexing; electronic and physical storage and retrieval; medical records retrieval; transcription, and digital voice recording and retrieval.
The acquisition of Ogilby will mean the transfer of 24,000 boxes of information and nearly 50 clients to Data Dimensions’ records management center in Janesville. Most of the information and clients are in the health care industry.
Caryn Smith Rhodes said the acquisition wouldn’t appreciably increase employment in Janesville, where Data Dimensions has about 75 employees between its headquarters on Midland Court and its records management center on South Jackson Street.
The company has two facilities in Iowa that push its total employment to 250.
“We are delighted to add Ogilby to Data Dimensions,” said Jon Boumstein, the company’s president and CEO. “We will continue to execute our growth strategy toward becoming the largest, privately held business process optimization organization in the United States.”
Data Dimension announced last month that it is building a 20,000-square-foot addition at its Midland Court facility. The expansion will add 50 new jobs and at peak capacity in two to five years could mean an additional 200 workers.
The new $3 million building will house a state-of-the-art data center and will be capable of withstanding an F5 tornado.
