Last week, we had the official grand opening of the new Patterson Technology Center (PTC) in Effingham, Illinois. I am in awe of how many individuals came out to share their support for the new facility. While the grand opening itself was a huge success, it would have never been possible without the hard work and dedication of so many. I’d like to take a moment to simply say thank you to everyone who attended the grand opening and who made this building a reality.
First, I’d like to thank Patterson Companies and the executive leadership from all of our business units (dental, medical, and veterinary) for seeing the value the new PTC has on all of the industries we touch as well as believing that the city of Effingham and its people could be the nerve center of it all. I’d also like to thank the City of Effingham, the Effingham County Board, the Effingham Chamber of Commerce, Teutopolis Unit 50 School Board and all the residents of Effingham for your support of the new facility and for embracing Patterson Companies into our community in Effingham, Illinois.
A tremendous thank you to our building partners and the Patterson Companies Facilities Team and Creative Services Group for all the hours they spent to design, create and build this absolutely amazing new facility. Thank you to the Patterson Companies sales professionals for all their work selling the products we create and support at the PTC which also fund our wonderful new facility.
I’d also like to thank all of the employees here at the Patterson Technology Center for all of their hard work moving into and getting the new facility operating while still providing outstanding support to all of our customers.
Finally, and certainly not least, thank you to all Patterson customers for their support of our technology products and their use of our support services. If it wasn’t for your belief in moving your industries forward through technology, we wouldn’t be here.
