Laserfiche is a global software company, but CEO Chris Wacker will tell you it’s also a local company — one that continues to invest in Long Beach.
The private company, founded in 1987 and based in Long Beach since 2001, is celebrating the groundbreaking of a new headquarters building near its existing campus in Bixby Knolls. Laserfiche has committed $60 million to the project.
Shovels will hit the ground during a public ceremony at 10:30 a.m. next Thursday, July 11, at 3459 Long Beach Blvd., where the four-story, 102,848-square-foot addition to Laserfiche’s footprint is expected to be complete in late 2020.
Wacker said the expanded campus would accommodate the company’s rapid growth, with employees projected to double in Long Beach from 300 to 600 by the year 2025. Laserfiche also has another 420 employees at its offices in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, as well as Guadalajara, Hong Kong, London, Shanghai and Toronto.
“Laserfiche is entering an era of accelerated innovation, which requires workforce growth and the evolution of our headquarters to align with our visionary products,” Wacker said. “We are committed to continued investment in Long Beach, and look forward to bringing hundreds of well-paying tech jobs to the city.”
