Farm Credit Financial Partners, Inc. (FPI), a customer-owned provider of technology products and services to the Farm Credit System, has relocated from its Agawam, Mass. office to Springfield’s Tower Square. The move to the new office space will accommodate the company’s growth and expansion over the past 25 years. 

“FPI was founded in the greater Springfield area and we have been looking for a new space nearby that could accommodate our growth,” said Bob Passini, FPI’s president and CEO. “Tower Square is committed to providing a business-friendly environment with ample space and amenities to meet the needs of our staff.”

FPI began its tenure at the Agawam Corporate Center in 1995 with 32 employees. The company has since grown to over 250 employees with this year marking its 25th year of serving the Farm Credit System. Farm Credit is a network of borrower-owned lending institutions and service organizations specializing in lending and agriculture-related services for farmers and ranchers, farmer-owned cooperatives and agribusinesses, rural homebuyers and infrastructure providers across the country.

Over the years, FPI has expanded its offerings to include not only technology solutions, but also infrastructure, credit delivery systems, business intelligence, funds management, customer support, and consultative partnering. The company now supports six agricultural credit associations across the country and has employees located in its Springfield, Mass. headquarters, Spokane, Wash., and remote.

 “As we were evaluating new locations, we considered both the needs of our company and amenities that would benefit staff,” said Passini. “I’m pleased that our staff will have the opportunity to enjoy the many dining options in Citywalk Café, retail shops, services, and the Springfield YMCA’s childcare and wellness center.” 

“Farm Credit Financial Partner’s tenancy and occupancy represents a significant addition to the approximately 120,000 rentable square footage of new tenancy at Tower Square in the past 24 months. This has made Tower Square and downtown Springfield the premier business destination in western Mass,” said Demetrios Panteleakis, Principal of Macmillan Group, LLC. 

“Nearly 500 new occupants will help highlight a vibrant professional community. Tower Square provides a safe, tenant-friendly atmosphere with great amenities and the most accessible on-site parking for tenants in Springfield,” said Panteleakis.

“As we navigate the current pandemic, this new space is large and independent, which gives us the flexibility to adjust floor layouts and workspaces to ensure the safety of our employees and customers,” said Passini. “With all of this in mind, we know this is the right move at the right time and are committed to supporting our agricultural credit association partners as we transition to our new location.”
