ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland, June 9 /CNW/ - Johnson Inc. is pleased to
announce that it has fast-tracked its head office plans in St. John's by
securing space in the Fort William Building.
Ken Bennett, President of Johnson Inc. said, "These are truly exciting
times for us at Johnson. Our organization has been experiencing such rapid
growth that our current Head Office space can no longer accommodate all of our
employees. In fact, in recent years, we have had to lease additional office
space around the City for this purpose. When we heard that space was available
in the Fort William Building, we felt it was a great opportunity for us to
have all of our employees in St. John's together as soon as possible."
The Fort William Building is a high visibility, Class A, office building
in a great location. In total, Johnson will lease approximately 80,000 square
feet with options for more space should additional be required. The company
plans to revitalize space in this signature building with the expertise of St.
John's based architect, Ron Fougere.
"At Johnson we are committed to our community and to maintaining our head
office in St. John's, the city where we began our operations more than 125
years ago," said Bennett. "In selecting a new head office we wanted a downtown
location that would provide our customers and employees with a number of
amenities while at the same time present opportunities for us to continue to
grow. The Fort William Building is a fantastic building that meets all of our
requirements and would have been our first choice had it been available a year
