Alliance Communications and the Brandon Valley Area Chamber of Commerce held a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, July 31, to celebrate the start of construction on Alliance’s new building at 1400 E. Aspen Blvd., in Brandon.
“Alliance is dedicated to the communities we serve,” said General Manager Ross Petrick. “We’re excited about reinvesting in the Brandon community by providing our customers with a new office and retail location.”

Employees who currently work at the location near Sunshine Foods will relocate to the new facility once it’s completed later this upcoming winter. Alliance’s new office will have space for up to 21 employees and feature a new retail and demonstration area. The technicians will continue working out of the Alliance warehouse in the industrial park.

Alliance purchased land at the corner of Splitrock and Aspen in the 1990s with intentions of eventually building a new business office. Before plans could officially proceed, a propane gas company needed to move its large tanks from the location.
“Remember what used to sit here? The ugly gas tanks.” said Kim Cerwick, president of the Brandon Valley Area Chamber of Commerce. “You guys are making this a pretty space again. We’re really excited about that and what you’ve done for the community.”
