Baron Services Cuts Ribbon On New HQ, Operations Center

Includes Tornado-Hardened Equipment

Weather analysis and technology provider Baron Services announced Tuesday it has extensively expanded its headquarters in Huntsville, AL to provide additional space for further development of its weather detection technologies. The facility includes a tornado-hardened state-of-the-art operations center housing the company’s 24-hour, 7 day-a-week forecasting, data processing and technical support services.

The 13,500-square-foot addition was completed in April and includes a tornado-hardened server facility with one-foot thick concrete-reinforced walls and ceiling, which will ensure Baron’s customers get uninterrupted data delivery during the most severe weather outbreaks. Additionally the company has doubled its bandwidth and tripled its redundancy, enabling it to receive and distribute data more efficiently. Furthermore, Baron Services has tripled its generator capacity.

"I am so proud of this new facility," said Bob Baron, president and CEO of Baron Services. "We now have the space and technologies we need to support our customers for years to come."

The Operations Center is equipped with 10 LCD, flat-panel television displays that aid Baron meteorologists in monitoring incoming and outgoing weather data, as well as monitoring weather conditions throughout the world. Equipped with the latest ultra-high-performance workstations from Dell™, Baron’s technical support services department is available 24-hours, 7 days-a-week.

"The backbone of our company is certainly meteorological innovation," said Baron. "That innovative spirit and advanced engineering has spurred the company’s growth across all five divisions enabling it to thrive in a variety of industries."

Baron Services is XM Radio’s weather partner for the award-winning XM WX Satellite Weather service, a trusted information source for professional pilots and mariners. An extension of that partnership resulted in XM NavWeather. The XM NavWeather service utilizes Baron’s exclusive Threat Matrix technology to track and provide drivers immediate alerts on developing weather threats, such as hail, floods, tornado and storm warnings.
