City officials and business executives welcomed Hilti North America Inc. to Plano at a grand opening ceremony June 18 at its new headquarters in Legacy Tower.

The company, which is a supplier of specialized construction tools, chemicals and fastening systems, relocated from Tulsa, Oklahoma, and will occupy the 10th and 11th floors of the 342,000-square-foot tower at the Dallas North Tollway and Legacy Drive.

"People from all areas – both public and private - have done so much to make us feel at home and have been so willing to help and support us.  In an environment like that, how could we not accomplish even greater things," he said. "Our event last week was the celebration of an important milestone in our company’s development and we are thankful to start the next step of our journey in Plano. We are anxious to get settled and jump in and give back to the communities which have supported us."

For Hilti, the new corporate offices place a special emphasis on its people and products. A personalization wall signed by the 200 employees who made moved to Plano is one of the centerpieces of the 10th floor, Evert said. Seventy-six percent of the company's employees relocated to Plano from Tulsa.
