TSI Global Companies, LLC, an MBE low-voltage systems and technology integrator, is holding its ribbon-cutting ceremony July 15 at its new high-tech facility in St. Charles, Missouri.
The new office puts the technology that TSI deploys every day for its customers front and center. Walking through the facility, you can see the attention to detail in the wiring of the network cabling and data closets. You can experience sound masking, background music, networked audio and video, and a variety of native conferencing experiences including Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, and Zoom as well as bring-your-own-device capabilities.
The ground-breaking event will give Robert Bray, TSI president; the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma, majority owner of TSI; and other local dignitaries the opportunity to tell the story of how TSI was on the brink of closing its doors forever during the flood of 1993, but thanks to the St. Charles Economic Development Council, was able to survive and grow into the new 40,000-square-foot headquarters the company moved into earlier this year.
“TSI was 6 feet under water, literally and figuratively, during the flood of ’93, and we felt the pressure from all sides telling us it may be time to close the doors permanently,” said Bray. “However, thanks to the faculty at Lindenwood University and the EDC in St. Charles, we were given a temporary home to work out of until we could get back on our feet. It just goes to show the true power of St. Charles EDC and how they help businesses of all kinds and sizes prosper in today’s world. That is why St. Charles will forever be the home of TSI Global Companies.”
The news of TSI’s new headquarters follows its office expansion into Charlotte, North Carolina, which was confirmed earlier this month. The new East Coast expansion will help facilitate major enterprise clients outside of the Midwest area.
“We couldn’t have gotten to where we are today if it weren’t for the support of our team and community”, said John Slattery, chief executive officer of TSI. “The excitement we have throughout the organization points to more promising growth here in the future.”
