International Code Council welcomes General Code LLC to its Family of Companies
This agreement will considerably expand Code Council content management services and extend General Code’s reach to ICC members
Washington, D.C. – The International Code Council welcomes General Code LLC to its Family of Companies, effective November 15, 2017.
The Code Council, a 64,000 member-based association, is the global market leader in developing model codes and standards used in the design, build and compliance process. General Code is a market leader in codification and content management solutions and currently serves clients in more than half of U.S. states. Based in Rochester, N.Y., the company has been committed to serving its clients for the past 55 years.
“This acquisition of General Code will provide a perfect complement to our product and service portfolio,” said Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO. “We are strategically aligned with similar missions and goals, focused on safety and serving our members and customers.”
The benefits for General Code and its clients are equally significant. By joining the Code Council, General Code will have greater capacity to build on its premier product and service offerings with expanded resources and broader geographic reach to a larger customer base.
“The opportunity for growth and the possibilities this partnership offers are exciting,” said Gary Domenico, General Code president and CEO. “Ultimately, this is a union of two like-minded companies with similar values. General Code will continue to be the market leader in codification services and content management solutions for municipalities, and our values-based culture will continue to thrive in the years to come.”
General Code will retain all of its 113 employees and remain in Rochester. The company anticipates measured, purposeful growth over the next few years.
