PASO ROBLES, Calif. – Software manufacturer IQMS has announced it has broken ground on a 30,000 square foot building at its corporate headquarters in Paso Robles. The two-story building, costing $5 million, is the second building in Paso Robles for the company. In addition IQMS has also purchased land next to its present site for future expansion.
In addition to its current construction, IQMS is also growing internally as well.
The company hired 16 new employees in September, bringing its total workforce to nearly 100. In addition, IQMS is expecting to hire more than 100 new employees over the next two years. For more information, see story below.

IQMS, a manufacturing ERP softwareand MES developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and relationships, today announced that it has officially broken ground on a second 30,000 square foot building at its global corporate headquarters in Paso Robles, Calif. This reinvestment of nearly $5 million into the additional two-story building will effectively double the amount of square footage at IQMS' base of operations.
The new structure was conceived by RRM Design Groupof San Luis Obispo and designed to match the architecture and feel of the current IQMS center of operations. In addition to the secondary building that has begun construction, IQMS has also invested in land across from the two current building sites, setting a forward thinking foundation for an international campus setup.
"Everyone is excited about the expansion of our corporate headquarters and the new juncture this represents for IQMS," said Randy Flamm, president at IQMS. "The continued support of our customers and our expansion into new manufacturing industries has allowed us this opportunity to reinvest in the company and competitively position ourselves for a steadfast and enduring future."
The fear of quickly outgrowing the current corporate headquarters is definitely being felt at home. In September alone, IQMS added 16 new employees and expects to hire an additional 120 over the course of the next two years.
"The groundbreaking of our new building could not have come soon enough," added Flamm. "With nearly 100 employees at our center of operations, we are at capacity. Add to the equation all the recent employees and projected hires we plan to add to the IQMS team and we are practically bursting at the seams. We joke internally that at the rate we are growing, as soon as we move into the new building, we are going to have to immediately begin construction on a third!"
