Pittsburgh, PA -- FORE Systems, Inc., a provider of high-performance networking products based on asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) technology, officially unveiled its new $40 million headquarters, an architecturally innovative campus that combines the high-tech image of the Silicon Valley with an unusual design. The sleek and spacious 96-acre campus in Marshall Township, Pennsylvania, is about 25 miles north of Pittsburgh, where FORE Systems has become one of the anchors of southwestern Pennsylvania's rapidly growing high-tech corridor. The company held a grand-opening ceremony today, with historian, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and host of PBS' "The American Experience," David McCullough serving as keynote speaker. "This unique structure will serve as a historic reminder of our commitment to the Pittsburgh area, which has emerged as a wellspring of technological innovation," said Eric Cooper, chairman and chief executive officer of FORE Systems. "In essence, it symbolizes a new era for the region's business climate, as well as a new milestone for FORE Systems and ATM technology." The 300,000 square-foot facility is comprised of three two-story buildings, with a potential total capacity of 1,100 employees. The new campus overlooking Thorn Hill Industrial Park gives FORE Systems, which currently has 800 employees at the site, room to grow in the future, Cooper added.
