On Saturday, June 15, Lumbee River EMC’s members, employees, Board of Directors and local dignitaries gathered to dedicated Lumbee River EMC’s new office located on highway 711 in the COMtech Business Park.
“This new building has been a long time coming” said Lumbee River EMC President and CEO Carmen Dietrich. “Our employees are grateful that the directors saw the need for this new office space.”
LREMC had been in its old location in Red Springs since 1945 and broke ground on the new facility in June 2017.
“The design of this building includes a large amount of natural lighting and incorporates a more open design that encourages an even greater amount of interaction and collaboration among our employees” Dietrich said.
The facility includes nearly 35,000 square feet of office space, a nearly 29,000 square-foot warehouse, a garage and vehicle shelter. The building also integrates new technologies, including 50 monitors for more efficient member and employee communications.
