By Juhi Fadia, Correspondent  |  June 21, 2022

Even as the United States continues to respond to economic uncertainty, one thing is certain: strong, successful enterprises are thriving, especially in the technology and telecom industries. One case in point is Granite Telecommunications, a $1.75 billion provider of communications services to multilocation businesses and government agencies.

Today, Granite announced plans to expand its workforce on the strength of record sales and financial performance in 2022. The company is seeking to immediately fill 250 high-wage jobs, including 70 tech positions at its headquarters near Boston and 11 regional offices throughout the U.S.

"At Granite, we succeed by listening to our customers, and what they're telling us now is that they need the same type of assistance with data services as Granite has provided for voice services," said Rob Hale, CEO and founder of Granite. "As we launch into our third decade of service, we're committed to maintaining our industry-best support and service to a broader range of technical solutions. We're just getting started."

Granite is also celebrating 20 in business, and throughout June is celebrating with an anniversary party in Boston, where the company is based, as well as satellite celebrations at regional offices across America.

The company has a lot to celebrate, having exceeded its 2022 fiscal goal of $1.75 billion in annualized revenue and rewarded every team member with $500 bonuses.

Granite was also named to the Forbes list of America’s Best Employers for a fifth time earlier this year.

This week, Granite is celebrating alongside TMC (News - Alert) and some 300 other exhibitors at one of the world’s largest, longest-standing and most popular IT gatherings – ITEXPO 2022.

Over Granite's 20-year history, the company's early growth was fueled early on by Plain Old Telephone Services (POTS), but as the company innovates and evolves, its core business has been increasingly driven by advanced communications solutions.

Long regarded as an industry leader in POTS, Granite has now emerged a leader in an array of technologies from cloud-delivered LTE (News - Alert) and 5G wireless network edge solutions to SD-WAN and POTS alternatives.

The growth of Granite's advanced communications business has created 250 more high-paying career opportunities, including many positions in engineering, networking, system security, software development, application development and leadership.

In these roles, Granite's team members design, build and implement communications solutions for a client base which includes over two-thirds of Fortune 100 companies and numerous federal and state government agencies.

Granite delivers advanced communications solutions to businesses and government agencies throughout the United States and Canada. The $1.75 billion company serves more than two-thirds of Fortune 100 companies and has 1.75 million voice and data lines under management, supporting more than 650,000 locations.

Private held, with zero debt, Granite employs more than 2,250 people at its headquarters in Quincy, Mass. and 11 regional offices nationwide, and has raised over $47 million for cancer research through their annual Saving by Shaving event.
