Skyward announces expansion

Posted:

Stevens Point (WQOW) - A Wisconsin company is sticking to their word to expand in the state.

Sunday when Governor Walker signed the state budget, he included a provision that would allow schools to choose between different companies for information services.

Originally a Minnesota company was awarded the contract to run the state's information system, but a state committee voted to change how the state contracted for the service. The ruling allowed multiple companies, including Skyward out of Stevens Point, to provide the services.

Now Skyward announced they plan to build a new world headquarters in Portage County. Company leaders say the new building will add jobs and boost the economy.

They hope to break ground for the new building by next year.
