Information technology company returns to Wallingford - Meriden Record-Journal

WALLINGFORD —  An historic firehouse built in 1890 was recently sold to a Meriden information technology company for $435,000.

ASG Information Technologies bought the two-story firehouse at 9 S. Cherry St. from Branford Investment Group for use as its new office after 10 years on South Broad Street in Meriden. 

”The bottom line is I have been wanting to move the company back to Wallingford and own our building,” said owner Robert Mitchell “We heard about this space. It’s a very cool and unique building. The inside is just as cool. We looked at it, and liked it and made the offer on it.”

The 3,418 square foot firehouse was renovated to fit 10 private offices, conference rooms, kitchen and open collaborative area. It has five-zone heating, and five parking spaces, according to a press statement from Press/Cuozzo Realtors, who represented the Branford Investment Group. 

ASG Information Technologies provides managed information technology services to large and small businesses. It opened 21 years ago in a location several blocks from the firehouse. Ten years ago, it moved to what was then known as the Blockbuster Plaza on South Broad Street in Meriden.

The firehouse had been the administrative offices of Integri Care Inc. In 2013, owner George Mandes sold it to the Branford Investment Group LLC for $326,405. It was leased to Metropolitan Interactive. Press Cuozzo was asked to help find a tenant for the building but instead found a buyer and they agreed to sell, said Stephen Press of Press Cuozzo.  

   ”It’s like going home,” Mitchell said.
