CHAMBERSBURG — As of May 1, eLynxx Solutions will have a new home.
The developer of enterprise-level software for acquisition and management of print, direct mail, marketing, advertising and promotional materials has announced selection of Kerrstown Square in downtown Chambersburg as the new home of its corporate headquarters.
The HQ move capitalizes on technology infrastructure and ongoing improvements at the South Main Street location, bringing approximately 20 professional technical roles to the downtown business district.
Company roots go back to ’70s
With Chambersburg roots dating back to the early 1970s, eLynxx Solutions grew out of a consultancy business to become an innovator of specialty software as well as a pioneer in what today is known as cloud-based software.
This move, with a target date of May 1, is the third for the company and marks its return to the borough’s core.
“Thirty years ago we purchased a building at Main and McKinley Streets,” said company founder and chairman, Bill Gindlesperger. “When we outgrew that space, we sold the building and leased space in the Chambersburg Area Development Corporation’s (CADC) Chambers-5 business park.”
In that location, eLynxx Solutions continued to evolve, focusing on software creation and building its repertoire of print acquisition solutions used by enterprises including Fortune 500 companies, educational institutions and public sector organizations.
“CADC has been wonderful to work with for these past 14 years,” Gindlesperger said, “but now the time is right to make another move and Kerrstown Square fits our current needs perfectly.”
Kerrstown move brings eLynxx downtown
Ready-to-adapt space where the Borough of Chambersburg was vacating its temporary location in the building, along with in-progress improvements including new elevator access, made the timing right for eLynxx Solutions to make its move.
Kerrstown Square’s high-tech infrastructure, loft-like architecture and authentic vintage details form a textbook-perfect idea of the downtown tech space eLynxx Solutions was seeking.
“Kerrstown Square has a long history of being home to technology innovators,” eLynxx CEO Nathan Rotz said.
Besides being home to Chambersburg’s first internet service provider, it has also hosted the area’s first cyberschool, first online newspaper and several technology staffing and training companies.
“We’re happy to be continuing that tradition by making eLynxx Solutions the first cloud software company to call Kerrstown home,” Rotz said.
High tech center was dearly downtown revitalization project
One of downtown Chambersburg’s first economic revitalization projects, Kerrstown Square has also been one of its most successful.
Once the eLynxx Solutions move is complete, Kerrstown Square will be very close to full occupancy, a status it has enjoyed several times over the years.
The addition of the software company to the center of town has community leaders excited.

Trish Hanks, Downtown Business Council president said having a diverse mix of businesses is essential to a successful and lively downtown.
“It’s also a key part of what leaves a great impression on visitors to downtown Chambersburg, Hanks said.
“A company like eLynxx Solutions will certainly be a contribution to the vitality and economy of our downtown as well as a welcome addition to the community of people invested in it.”
While making a move is never easy an easy undertaking, it is one the company is excited to be doing, according to Rotz.
He said the entire company is looking forward to being part of the vibrancy and continued growth at heart of the community eLynxx Solutions has called home for nearly 45 years.
