In the spring of 2012, Rubicon president Richard D’Loss decided that his training and consulting business needed to make a move. Rubicon had been leasing office space in a old school. If the business was to grow, it would need a new space of its own. With that in mind, and with his strong belief in Main street America, he did the logical thing. He bought a building on Main Street. The building, which was formerly a doctor’s office, has been transformed into the new Rubicon headquarters. It is located just a few blocks from the old offices in Carnegie, near Pittsburgh.
Richard acquired the property in September of last year and workers spent the winter months renovating the 110 year old building. They gutted the entire first floor. Everything was replaced— electrical, plumbing, HVAC, flooring, and finally, furnishings. Rubicon held an Open House in May. “It’s very exciting to move into a new space. From floor to ceiling, everything is new; the only thing we kept from the original interior was the brick fireplace in the reception area.” said Melissa Maurer, administrative assistant. Rob Harpelle, maintenance training manager for Jazz Airlines provided a model Q-400 to grace the new Rubicon offices. “We congratulate Rubicon on their move and we look forward to continuing our close relationship”.
“Now that this transition is complete, we refocus on growing our business. Specifically, we see some opportunity in the regional aircraft market, that is, in addition to the CRJ training we already offer in partnership with Jazz. And despite the negative impact of sequestration, we see some opportunities in supporting government operations.” says D’Loss.
In addition to a new address, Rubicon has a new phone number, 412-276-2000.
