It’s moving week for Stevens Point-based Skyward. The software giant has begun moving into its brand new building, a $32 million world headquarters that took 18 months to complete.
Skyward CEO Cliff King said the company’s Coye Dr. offices have already begun to move in, with staff from the Patch St. location moving next week.
The new 180,000-square-foot building will offer state-of-the-art facilities for all 450 employees under the same roof. The new location has 43 acres for the company to grow.
