July 29, 2014

BUFFALO, N.Y. – McGuire Development Company, a local commercial development, real estate consulting and property management firm, today announced that Bak USA LLC, a multinational high-tech manufacturing company will locate their US headquarters at Compass East. Approximately 10,000 square feet of space at Compass East was recently approved as a Start-Up NY location for the University at Buffalo.

Bak USA will occupy the fifth floor of Compass East. Of the approximately 10,000 square feet, half will be utilized for clean room PC tablet assembly and the other half will be used for administrative and back office services.

As a Start-Up NY company, Bak USA has committed to bringing 100 new jobs to Buffalo in phase one, with a focus on hiring from the surrounding community. These positions will involve a comprehensive employee training program for the assembly of high-end, tailor-made tablet PC devices.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Bak USA locate their business within Compass East. Our goal from the outset of the development project was to turn the former hospital into a state-of-the-art professional office and STEM facility. Bak’s occupancy of the fifth floor furthers that mission,” said Jim Dentinger, president of McGuire Development Company. “This is truly a win-win situation for Bak USA, McGuire Development and the City of Buffalo.”
