Last Friday’s Gazette announced that Janesville’s Data Dimensions has landed a government contract that will require 120 new workers. Within weeks, it will start processing and automating a mountainous backlog of medical records for the Veterans Administration. The jobs will push its local workforce to 470 and pay between $12.50 and $15.50 per hour under government requirements.

Data Dimensions is a second-generation, privately held company that specializes in document conversion and management. The new contract reflects the company’s credibility and capabilities. For years Data Dimensions has securely handled vital records for the banking, financial, insurance, health care and aerospace industries. Its managers saw that paper records wouldn’t be around forever and sought solutions. It took calculated risks that helped it grow while competitors faltered.

In Wednesday’s Gazette editorial, we’ll explain more about why the company, owned by Mark and Kathy Bush, is a shining star on our local economy as well as a good corporate citizen.
