ORONO, Maine -
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced today it has purchased the University Inn Academic Suites building in Orono, Maine. Tyler plans to expand its Orono-based workforce, which will accommodate 36 of its team members who currently work out of the Bangor, Maine, office. Once the full renovations are complete, the office will house approximately 75 employees.
"Tyler is excited to expand our presence in Maine with the purchase of the Orono facility," said Chris Hepburn, president of Tyler's Enterprise Group. "We have strong ties to the local area and having this new space will allow us to strengthen our commitment to hiring in Maine. In addition, it will help us foster STEAM job opportunities for both full-time employees and for internship candidates, as well as strengthen our relationship with community partners."
Tyler's expansion in Orono will also allow for greater collaboration with the Orono-based University of Maine. Recently, Tyler announced a partnership with the Foster Center for Innovation at the University of Maine for its Maine App Challenge. Student participants in the Maine App Challenge, and the educators supporting them, will have the opportunity to complete a series of free workshops at the university related to brainstorming, customer discovery, prototyping, testing, and promotional pitching as they design their app for the competition.
With the new office space in Orono, Tyler plans to provide a shared space to be available to the community during non-office hours. Tyler will also be working closely with the town of Orono to align with its economic development plans.
Tyler has a long history in Maine, with more than 1,200 employees currently based in its Yarmouth, Falmouth, and Bangor offices. The company was recently recognized as a 2021 Best Place to Work in Maine for the 14th year.
