SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Sep 25, 2012) - Attachmate Corporation today announced plans to move its headquarters in the first quarter of 2013 from its current location in Seattle's West Lake Union to the Union Station complex located near the International District, Pioneer Square, Safeco Field and CenturyLink Field. After inhabiting its existing headquarters for nearly 20 years, the company recently signed a lease for space in Seattle's Union Station building. The new location provides numerous options for mass transit, easy access to highways and major thoroughfares, SeaTac Airport, restaurants, hotels and other amenities.
"The way our customers work is changing," said Kathleen Owens, president and general manager for Attachmate. "They are dealing with big questions around mobile technology and security regulations while also tasked with providing greater returns on their data investment. As we continue to help them integrate their existing systems with emerging technologies we realized it was time for a change in our own workplace environment. We sought a more vibrant, collaborative and energetic work environment for our employees and are excited to have found that atmosphere in the Union Station building."
Approximately 250 Attachmate employees will be affected by the move, which is estimated to begin in the first quarter of 2013. The new Attachmate headquarters will be located at 705 Union Station -- 705 5th Ave S., Seattle, WA, 98104.
