Turner Technology Plans Open House for New Holdrege Location
Lt. Gov. Foley, local leaders celebrate Niobrara Valley Vineyards’ expansion project, which will be assisted by funding from the Community Development Block Grant program for Tourism Development.
HOLDREGE — The public is invited to help Turner Technology celebrate its new downtown Holdrege location and the business’s 30th anniversary at an open house from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Turner Technology moved out of its former home inside of AgWest Commodities in September to its location at Brewster Place, 414 East Ave. The open house will include food, drinks, entertainment and door prizes. The Holdrege Area Chamber of Commerce will commemorate the occasion with an official ribbon cutting at 4 p.m.
Owner Gary Bren said the downtown location will give the company better visibility as it plans to increase its presence and grow the company’s operations in central Nebraska.
“There’s more opportunity to grow here than in Omaha,” Bren said. “I love the business climate in central Nebraska.”
Turner Technology started in 1992 in Omaha and branched out to Holdrege in 2010. The company provides managed IT services, software development, networking, VoIP services, security and consulting. The company mainly serves other businesses and has extensive experience with medical offices, manufacturing and distribution, insurance and financial services, and non-profit organizations. They help connect the dots between people and technology.
In central Nebraska, Turner Technology serves clients in about a 100-mile radius of Holdrege, including McCook, Hastings, North Platte and northern Kansas. Turner Technology employs seven people in the Holdrege office and plans to nearly double its local staff in the next year.
The company takes pride in having big city skills and small town values, which matches with its decision to have a greater presence in downtown Holdrege.
Turner Technology remodeled the front third of the Brewster Place building. It will occupy space on the first floor and second floor. Part of the third floor will be transformed into apartments for Turner Technology employees. The new location includes a modern conference room with audio and video equipment that seats up to 18 people. The room will be available at no charge for members of the Holdrege Area Chamber Of Commerce and Phelps County Development Corporation investors.
