At April’s 2022 Executive Appreciation Event, Rockwall EDC celebrated three of Rockwall’s primary employers for their achievements: Lime Media, Archer OpTx, and KE Andrews.
Lime Media, an international experiential marketing company specializing in custom vehicles, received an award for Innovation in Design, because of their uniquely designed facility in the Rockwall Technology Park. The design incorporates a hexagonal entry feature, and the company’s creativity can be seen in every element of the facility – from the lobby to offices, employee breakroom and restrooms. Currently, Lime Media has a formidable statue of “The Hulk” situated on their employee patio.
Archer OpTx, a national leader in optical lens manufacturing, was given the Workforce Development Award for their out-of-the-box recruitment efforts. Archer OpTx used a Workforce Recruitment Grant, provided by REDC, to attend an optical manufacturing job fair in Rochester, New York, searching for future employees with a skillset specific to their industry.
KE Andrews, one of the largest state and local tax firms in the country, was awarded the Economic Development Impact Award for the development of their stunning, 80,000 SF, lakefront, Class A office building on Ridge Road, and their commitment to employ over 200 white-collar workers over a 10-year period, with a median wage significantly higher than other jobs in Rockwall.
Congratulations to all of this year’s award winners, and thank you to these and each of our primary employers who make Rockwall the best place to live and work.
