Onix Moves to Lakewood

City of Lakewood News Release


May 31, 2011


Tim Needles, President and CEO of Onix Networking announced this week that the company has nearly completed its relocation to their new world headquarters in Lakewood. Earlier this year, the 35 person firm purchased the Georgetown Row half of the former Bonne Belle building at the corner Detroit and Graber. “My wife Dianne and I have a significant history with the city are excited about our new location and continuing the growth of the company”.

“An innovative company like Onix fits Lakewood’s spirit of creative entrepreneurism”, said Mayor Mike Summers, “We are delighted that Mr. Needles and his team are now part of our vibrant business community.”

The move to Lakewood is the latest chapter in the Needles’ connection to the city. Tim is a graduate of St. Edward High School, his wife grew up on Hall Avenue and the couple rented their first house together in Lakewood. Mr. Needles cited Lakewood’s renaissance over the last few years and a desire to be part of the city’s on-going resurgence as motivating factors in choosing a location.

“Lakewood has a lot of plusses and great urban character”. He continued that the city has those qualities that are attractive to his associates both current and future such as great dining, shops and parks and that it feels like a community. “An important part of our culture is to be an engaged and active corporate citizen”.
