WICHITA — A new company is coming to northeast Wichita to partner with Cox Communications and create about 100 new jobs.
Pennsylvania-based Communications Test Design Inc., or CTDI, is taking 112,000 square feet at 3434 N. Comotara.
“This is a dedicated facility for Cox,” says Jim O’Hara, CTDI director of marketing. “We’re an engineering test and repair company, and we service network equipment for customers.”
That means products Cox customers are going to use or have used will have software uploaded on them at this facility or be recycled or prepared for reuse here.
“CTDI and Cox … have a really nice relationship now,” O’Hara says.
This is the fifth such facility the companies have partnered on nationwide.
The almost 40-year-old CTDI is based in West Chester, Pa., and its headquarters handles services for a number of different customers, including wireless operators.
“Our history is we typically do expand our operations to service other customers in the region,” O’Hara says. “That would be down the road.”
It likely also would mean a second facility.
