The facility at 2701 E. Ryan Road, near Gilbert and Queen Creek roads, will be called One Insight Way. The company expects to open the campus by the end of 2020 after redesigning its interior and building out the IT infrastructure.
Insight, which was founded in Tempe in 1988 as Hard Drives International, has been based in a 100,000-square-foot office near Interstate 10 and Guadalupe Road since 1997, when the company employed 700 workers.
A second Tempe location opened in 2008 near Elliot and Kyrene roads.
Insight, which offers a wide variety of technology solution services for business clients, says it now has 11,000 employees at locations in 19 countries, including 1,400 in Arizona.
