Beaverton's Axium headed to Tigard's Lincoln Center

BEAVERTON -- Software company Axium's upcoming move to Tigard is strictly about finding the right office space and not jetting from Beaverton.

President Cathy Mills said the company looked at three Beaverton locations, including the Round at Beaverton Central, before deciding to lease the entire sixth floor of 5 Lincoln Center.

"I personally feel a tight connection to Beaverton," said Mills, also president of Beaverton Rotary. "I think the address will be a technicality."

The move is somewhat notable because Mills is a personal friend and rotary colleague of Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle. Bringing jobs to Beaverton has been a big theme of Doyle's agenda, and he regularly promotes business news, from car dealership relocations to IBM job announcements to new bowling centers.

Axium is moving from Nimbus Avenue, across Oregon 217, to the Lincoln Center. Mills said the company of 60 employees expects to add about five after the move. She said Axium officials strongly considered moving to Cascade Square and also contemplated a move to the second-floor of the Round's Coldwell Banker building, which has just two tenants.

Mills said she liked the big windows at the Round and the proximity to light rail, but not the cramped parking garage.

"It was pretty serious," she said of her interest.

Mills said Axium, formally known as XTS Software Corporation, hopes to move to Lincoln Center by Oct. 1. She said the company signed an eight-year lease.

"It was about finding the right space," she said.
