Burlington, MA (PRWEB) July 18, 2011
To accommodate its growing employee base, Jones & Bartlett Learning – a division of Ascend Learning – will move July 30 from two office locations in Sudbury, Mass., and Maynard, Mass., to one new building in Burlington, Mass.
Jones & Bartlett Learning, whose corporate headquarters have been located in Sudbury since 1995, will occupy nearly 75,000 square feet and two floors of the six-story building at 5 Wall St. near Route 128 in Burlington. The company’s new location will include 11 conference rooms, covered parking, a fitness center and an onsite cafeteria. The new location also is conveniently located close to outdoor shops and restaurants. CUBE 3 Studio of Lawrence, Mass., designed the building space.
The original Jones & Bartlett editorial office was founded in the coastal community of Woods Hole, Mass., in 1983.
“We’re thrilled to not only be combining two current office locations into one larger space in Burlington, but to also maintain a strong and expanding employee presence in the Boston area,” said Ascend Learning CEO Rick Willet, who will have an office at the new location along with some other members of the Ascend Learning executive team. “This is an exciting time for Ascend Learning and JBL. The future is bright, and we’re positioned for continued growth in the future.”
