DSI Communications left for Littleton last month due to continuing growth and a lack of available locations in Chelmsford.
After over a decade in Chelmsford, DSI Marketing Communication packed up shop last month, moving down Littleton Road from their previous location across from the Elks Club to their new home in Littleton. While the company’s preference was to stay within Chelmsford, a lack of affordable mixed industrial/commercial space required a move to the new Littleton location, which at 14,000 square feet is twice as large as its old location. “The company has grown so rapidly that moving to a larger space has been a priority for us,” said Laurie Cote, president and chief executive officer. “We’ve doubled our workforce since 2010 and expanded our design, marketing and printing capabilities to serve clients across the country.
