Hartford IT vendor expands downtown

A Hartford information-technology services vendor says its grown its downtown office footprint by about two-thirds, in the Hartford Trust Building.

Commprise, which operates under the brand name Tech to Us, says it recently leased an additional 1,300 square feet at 750 Main St., its existing home, and now has a total of about 3,300 square feet in the building, CEO Guy Citarella said Wednesday.

The company, which services mainly small businesses across multiple industries, now has 15 employees in the space, with plans to add several support technicians and a business development representative this year, Citarella said.

The lease expansion follows a move Tech to Us made in 2013, from the sixth to the seventh floor.

Asked about the recent announcement from Infosys, India's IT giant, that it planned to add 1,000 jobs in Hartford, Citarella said he hopes it will be a good thing for smaller IT firms like his.

"It puts the name of Hartford out there as a destination [for IT talent]," he said. "Even small businesses now need IT services, it's not just a computer desktop anymore, it's security, networking and all that stuff combined."
