According to the Greater Omaha Economic Development Partnership, overall, the case for doing business in Greater Omaha remains strong. Forbes magazine recently ranked Omaha eighth among the "Best Cities for Jobs in 2008" and Nebraska as the 10th most favorable state for business. Kiplinger's Personal Finance ranked Omaha third among the "Top 10 Best Cities in 2008."
Thrasher and Foundation Supportworks (FSI) are both following the growth pattern other businesses are experiencing in Omaha. In fact, due to the exponential growth of Foundation Supportworks since 2008, we recently began construction of a 7,100 square foot addition to our office building. The new addition will be connected to our existing 10,000 square foot office building, it will make room for FSI's growing staff, it will open up existing space for the growing Thrasher staff, and the new building will house a state-of-the-art, interactive training facility that will be able to accommodate more than 100 individuals. Initial construction of the addition began on March 22nd and the project should be completed by the end of August.
