Of the groundbreaking and the award, Altman said, “Relocating our headquarters and developing the business park would not have happened without the input and help of the entire Round Rock Chamber and Economic Development team. They not only welcomed us with open arms, they worked tirelessly to ensure that the project was kept on task and they continue to help our organization and employees feel welcomed into the community. I feel quite honored.”
