ACDI Grand Opening: You Made It Possible!

ACDI Grand Opening: You Made It Possible!

Blog posts, letters, phone calls, tweets, video chats… There are a million ways to say “Thank you”, but we still can’t express our gratitude enough. After 23 years in the business, we’ve made friends from near and far and many of those friends recently shared a very special day with us.

One year to the day after breaking ground on our new headquarters, ACDI employees packed their files and folders and high-tailed it to our brand-new location in the heart of Benton, Arkansas. While Moving Day was certainly significant, the real treat came last Tuesday when our partners, friends, family, and neighbors all made the journey to downtown Benton for the official grand opening ceremony.

While we are eternally grateful to everyone who came out, we’d like to give special mention to: PaperCutPrinterOnToshiba America Business SolutionsKonica Minolta Business SolutionsRFIdeas, C.J.

A special thanks to the men and women that physically made this project possible from beginning to end. We’ve always been very impressed with the services received from our designers, architects, vendors, contractors, and sub-contractors.

Many thanks to all of the community members who took time out of their days to celebrate this milestone with us. #SalineBased #BentonProud.

The ACDI employees would personally like to thank and congratulate Josh and Mandy Lane for their faith and diligence in creating a brand new work home for us. We couldn’t imagine having any other family at the head of our company.

On behalf of the ACDI Team, we truly appreciate everyone who played a part in making this day a success and we look forward to many more successful years together. There was an abundance of people that were crucial to making the day a win and if we forgot to mention your name or company, please forgive us!
