Pulse Technology opens Indiana headquarters in Merrillville

Pulse Technology, the successor to the Munster and Chesterton office supply companies, will establish a new Indiana headquarters in Merrillville.

The Schaumburg-based company, which previously acquired McShane’s of Munster and Kramer & Leonard of Chesterton, provides information technology, managed print services and other office supplies to businesses throughout the Midwest.

It conducted its Indiana operations from a leased space at 312 Roberts Road in Chesterton, but will be relocating to a new office in Merrillville later this month.

The company purchased a 13,500-square-foot building at 3801 E. Lincoln Ave., a former fitness center that had been vacant for a number of years.

Pulse Technology is expanding and doubling the space to 27,000 square feet.

“When we introduced the other services our company offers to the Indiana market, including managed print and managed network, we needed more warehousing, warehouse and office space,” said Chip Miceli, CEO of Pulse Technology. “This move also gives us the opportunity to build a premium, bespoke showroom.”

The new headquarters will have a showroom with a large LED wall display.

“The showroom will showcase Pulse Technology’s capabilities and capabilities for the work office, from furniture and copiers/printers to other technology,” said project designer Lindsay Kornau.

Printers, copiers and products from Kimball International, HON and Trendway will be on display.

“We designed a cohesive environment for the space by grouping devices by manufacturer to give it a real showroom feel,” said project designer Jolee Allerdin.

Region Contractors of Griffith are undertaking the construction which will require the addition of new walls and flooring as it used to be one large open space when it was a gym. The hope is that all work, including the exterior paintwork, will be completed by March or April.

It will employ 45 people when it opens.

“We are excited about our new headquarters in Indiana. It’s a high visibility place and the design will suit our needs in a unique way,” said Miceli. “We enjoyed our time in Chesterton and look forward to becoming part of the Merrillville community and continuing to serve the needs of our customers throughout northern Indiana.”
