IoT connectivity firm Digi International is moving early next year to new headquarters at Excelsior Crossings in Hopkins, Minnesota.
 
The facilities, located in the top two floors of Building B at Excelsior Crossings, a modern, sustainable, three-building, 31-acre corporate campus, should enhance Digi's culture with a work environment that stimulates innovation via energy, creativity and collaboration.
 
With the assistance of BV Design Studios, the location integrates private work environments, informal and inviting common space, meeting and collaboration tools, and dedicated lab space. Located 5km from Digi's current headquarters, the move should provides little disruption and remain close to its Twin Cities logistics facility in Eden Prairie.
 
"This is great news not just for Digi, but for our customers and partners, the world of IoT, and Minnesota's tremendous technology industry," said Ron Konezny, Digi president and chief executive officer. "Our new headquarters will be ideal for our agile, athletic and innovative organisation. It will extend our leadership in the IoT and Minnesota technology space. This move reflects the cultural transformation we've undertaken, and I am thrilled to see the results."
 
The announcement of the new headquarters and innovation focus comes on the heels of independent research firm IoT One ranking Digi as Minnesota’s top industrial IoT company. With this move, Digi says it is reaffirming its commitment to Minnesota, technology development and maintaining its position at the forefront of IoT development.
 
Founded in 1985, Digi has helped its customers connect over 100 million things.
