SCHENECTADY — Transfinder is looking to expand beyond its 440 State St. offices.

President and CEO Antonio Civitella on Wednesday said he plans to keep his options open after purchasing the building next door at 438 State St.

The route-mapping software company moved its headquarters to State Street in 2013. After 30 years of working with different school districts and municipalities on their transportation managements systems and services, Citivella said it is time for the company to consider expanding.

Civitella said he bought the building in June for approximately $300,000 from Draper Development LLC. He said the company could expand there and potentially bring another 50 employees onto its payroll. That would be in addition to the more than 110 people the company already employs at three locations: Schenectady, Texas and China.

Civitella said 85 of the firm’s employees are located in the current State Street building.

The new space also could help Transfinder expand the services it provides to its clients.
