Golden Triangle Development LINK CEO Joe Max Higgins may not know all the ins and outs of high technology, but he knows a good thing when he sees it.
That's what he told a crowd of local officials and community leaders Thursday before C Spire announced it would build a $20 million data processing center at the Thad Cochran Research, Technology and Economic Development Park.
"Most of you will be like me," Higgins said. "You don't understand it, but you know it's a big deal."
Higgins emceed for a handful of speakers at the event, held in the High Performance Computing Center at the research park, as C Spire announced it would break ground on its 22,400 square-foot center next month with hopes of moving in by November 2014. The center will occupy a 6.5-acre site at the research park, bringing the park's phase one tenant space to capacity.
