Feb 19, 2020 03:12PM ● By News Desk
RADER, the Lafayette-based Information Technology (IT) firm, previously known as Rader Solutions, has purchased the iconic Piccadilly building in the Lafayette Oil Center, where it plans to relocate its operations. 

The move will allow for expanded Security and Network Operations Centers, in addition to accommodating it’s growing workforce, which nearly doubled in 2019.

“The growth that made this move necessary is exciting, but we want to make sure that it makes us better,” says RADER President Jacob Landry. “Our business strategy is focused on stable growth, and this is the next step to better serve our RADER team members and our partners who have made this possible. We expect to have an even more collaborative service environment while meeting the unique needs of our rapidly growing cyber-security division.”

The Oil Center Redevelopment Plan shows promise of a revitalized district, and RADER is enthusiastic about adding to the economic development and continued growth in the area. Relocation to the Core of Lafayette will enable RADER to further instill their five core values of Job of Choice, World-Class Service, Security, Continuous Improvement, and Community.

“Long time RADER employees have witnessed and understand the obsession our founder Chris Rader, has for service and the success of our partners,” says Landry.  “Our values define the vision Chris had and build upon it.  As we grow, we are committed to not losing the obsession and passion Chris built this company with.”  

The new facility is expected to undergo a complete renovation--barring any unforeseen delays, RADER hopes to be operational in its new facility by the end of 2021.
