Wind energy developer Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. (RES-Americas) has relocated its corporate headquarters to Broomfield, Colo. The company has been based in Austin, Texas, for nine years.

RES-Americas has regional offices in four states and Montreal, with project operations spanning six states and Canada. According to the company, the Denver metro area offers geographic proximity to RES-Americas operations, a business and political atmosphere that is supportive of renewable efforts and a welcoming environment for a high standard of living for RES-Americas employees.

"Colorado has demonstrated immense leadership in the development of renewable resources and alternative energy," says Craig Mataczynski, president of RES-Americas.

The company will relocate 70 full-time jobs from Texas, with plans to add an additional 70 full-time Broomfield-based employees over the next year. The company currently employs 160 people nationwide and in Canada.
