SHI reaches record $4.9 billion in first half of 2019
SHI has been on an upward trajectory for quite some time, and our latest revenue numbers show that growth continued in the first half of 2019. We brought in a record $4.9 billion in revenue during the first six months of the year, a 6.7% increase compared to 2018.
To support this growth, SHI has been investing heavily in our facilities and in our people. In the past year, we’ve poured $220 million into improving our support infrastructure. Our new, 400,000-square-foot data center Integration Center in Piscataway, New Jersey, is almost complete, scheduled to come online in September, and SHI Austin, the new campus for our 1,000+ Texas-based employees, is slated to open in February 2020.
We topped 4,500 employees in the first half of 2019, 15% higher than a year ago. 3,000 of these folks are in customer sales and technical support roles, ensuring our customers continue to receive the world-class customer service we’ve staked our name on these past 30 years.
