Intouch Solutions, a growing marketing firm that specializes in the pharmaceutical industry, plans to move into new space and hire an additional 350 people over the next five years.

The company, which employs 340 people locally, has been based in Overland Park since its founding in 1999. It expanded its workforce 16 percent last year and plans to move into 90,000 square feet at 7045 College Blvd. this June.

The firm currently has its headquarters in Corporate Woods. It employs 450 people nationwide and has offices in Chicago and New York.

“With the growth we have seen over the past few years, space has become an issue,” Intouch chief executive Faruk Capan said in a statement. “We are excited about this move because it not only provides us much needed room but allows us to stay in the … College Boulevard corridor.”

Kansas economic development officials said the company plans 350 new jobs in Overland Park over five years.

Intouch Solutions has been seeking space to expand for more than a year, according to a company release.

Intouch executive vice president Wendy Blackburn said Friday that openings at the firm include account service managers, customer relationship managers, email marketers, software developers and analysts. For more job information, go to intouchsol.com/careers.

The new location in what’s called the Renaissance III building is owned by Copaken Brooks. The firm was represented in its search by Rollie Fors of Colliers International.
