Akorbi, a Texas-based multilingual digital solutions, translation and localization company, has signed a new, 10,573-square-foot office lease at 1359 Lomaland Drive in El Paso, Texas. The lease signifies the fast-growing, women-led company’s ninth facility expansion outside of its Plano, Texas headquarters.
Newmark Senior Managing Director Jeff Pappas represented Akorbi in the lease transaction. Will Brown and Michael McBroom of Sonny Brown Associates represented the landlord.
“Akorbi was seeking to expand its translation and interpretation business unit, and required a location that was accessible to a high concentration of multilingual professionals,” said Pappas. “I’m proud to have helped Akorbi secure the ideal lease for its growth plans.”
The added location marks a significant milestone for Akorbi, as the new El Paso office showcases the company’s commitment to growth, and providing highly compliant, secure facilities for its financial and healthcare clients, while also broadening its reach in the diverse multilingual sector.
Akorbi is taking space in a one-story, state-of-the-art, multi-tenant office building in El Paso’s Vista del Sol submarket. The property is directly adjacent to the I-10 freeway and proximate to many retail, dining and entertainment options along Lomaland and Pelicano Drive.
”It’s an exciting time in our history at Akorbi,” said Claudia Mirza, Founder and CEO of Akorbi. “Last year we grew our on-demand telephonic interpretation by 116%, we achieved an important technology certification in our industry, ISO 27001, and we invested in technology and senior talent to give us a projected growth this year of 300%. We envision the success of 2023 to be in large part due to this expansion into El Paso, which is expected to be fully operational by July 2023. We look forward to building out our team to meet the changing needs of our client base while also continuing to specialize in highly compliant industries.”
