MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 12/05/13 -- Black Hills IP, LLC announces today that it has moved its Minneapolis operations into a new, larger facility. The new facility has three times the capacity of the prior facility. Black Hills IP provides paralegal services and docketing services to intellectual property law firms and in-house legal departments. The move caps a busy year at Black Hills IP. The company acquired its 100th customer in July and has grown steadily through the year.
Ann McCrackin, Black Hills IP's President, reports that 2013 has been Black Hills IP's strongest year yet. "Moving into a larger Minneapolis facility allows us to bring all our Minneapolis resources under one roof and continue to expand to keep up with demand." The new facility is located at Suite 350 of the 730 Building and houses approximately 30 employees. The company's main facility in Rapid City, South Dakota has also grown proportionally.
McCrackin cites Black Hills IP's expertise, low cost, and convenience as its main drivers of growth. "This year, our value proposition has attracted several of the largest patent owners and patent law firms as customers. The fact that we offer an accessible U.S.-based staff, have higher quality and still be cost-competitive with off-shore outsourcers has proven to be very attractive. We have enabled several of our customers to move services back to the U.S."
