Don’t let the building fool you. It’s a cube. It sits
in the middle of a field. It looks toward the interstate. It feels like,
well, it doesn’t really feel like much of anything from the outside.
It looks like a gazillion other industrial buildings that you’ve overlooked before.
The building is remarkable in how utterly unremarkable it is.
But on the inside, well, that’s different. It’s not so much that the business
housed here is particularly revolutionary. In a word, what’s produced
here are “computers” (we’ll get to some of the specifics later) — but
it’s not like it’s the worldwide headquarters of Google, Apple,
Microsoft or other tech giants that snatch headlines and inspire
legions of cutting-edge investors chasing the Next Big Thing.
No, what’s inside this nondescript building on the
outskirts of South Burlington is a burgeoning family-owned business that made a firm decision to
incorporate the best of Vermont values into the
culture of the company. This building — this
business — could be anywhere in the United
States. Austin, Texas, for instance. Or San
Jose. Or Burlington, Mass. But it’s located
in suburban Chittenden County —
just south and west of Interstate
89. And it’s here on purpose.
