July 19, 2016, Columbus, OH – Along with representatives from the local community, the Dümmen Orange team recently celebrated the official opening of their new North America headquarters with a reception.

The office, located on the sixth floor of the 250 S. High building in downtown Columbus, was recently relocated from a smaller office in nearby Hilliard. The move to 250 S. High supports the company’s vision to be integrated into a vibrant and inspiring community, and provides a bright, modern workspace for the approximately 30 employees whose ambition it is to live and work in Columbus.

Perry Wismans, managing partner for Dümmen Orange, shared his insights on the significance of the move.


“Here in Columbus, we now have a superb new office of which we can be proud and that will assist us in providing a great customer service experience. Thank you for your support in making Dümmen Orange a part of the downtown Columbus community.”

Local community leaders attending included Kristen Boggs, State Representative, Don DePerro, president of the Chamber of Commerce, and Cleve Ricksecker, executive director of the Capital Crossroads.

Dümmen Orange has proudly partnered with local organizations including the Columbus Museum of Art, Franklin Park Conservatory, Fashion Week Columbus, the Short North Alliance and PlaceMakes.
