The telecommunications company PAETEC Holding Corporation, formerly known as PaeTec Communications, became part of Windstream Communications after an acquisition in 2011. As of 2015, Windstream Communications' headquarters are in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Prior to becoming a part of Windstream, PaeTec had its headquarters outside of Rochester, New York, in the city of Fairport. In 2009, the state of New York approved plans and secured funding to clear an existing plaza in order to build PaeTec a new headquarters in downtown Rochester. Subsequent to the acquisition of PaeTec, Windstream announced they would maintain a presence in Rochester by moving 335 employees into the former Seneca Office Building downtown.
