President Kathy Rainbolt providing renovation updates to Pentecom colleagues.
The office space is comprised of two floors. The first floor will display stained concrete, original exposed beams, and repurposed science tables as countertops for the break room. The second floor will host a lounge utilizing a metal lunch counter and barstools which will face Cedar Street. Pentecom employee, Miria Dean stated, “The things they have been able to restore and keep for us to enjoy is amazing.”
Additionally, chalkboards from the school house were salvaged and will give the walls added character. Crystal Barrett, Pentecom Team Lead, explained “I used to go to the library all the time when I was in grade school to borrow books or cassettes, VHS’s, etc.” Undoubtedly, Pentecom staff is excited to be able to work in a nostalgic setting!
Pentecom’s roots in Palestine, Texas are an important part of its history. As the company continues to grow, its scope of providing technical data solutions extends throughout the nation. Even with such substantial development, Pentecom’s legacy will be encapsulated through the new office location. Pentecom anticipates the renovation will be completed this September.
