JOHNSTOWN — Concurrent Technology Corp. facitilities have reopened after federal investigators spent the day executing search warrants at the Richland Township facilities, a company spokeswoman confirmed.

"Our offices are now open and the Company will continue its renowned service to our clients and partners," Mary Bevan said in an emailed statement just after 6:30 p.m.

The brief press release marked the end of a long day for CTC leaders that began when employees were arriving for work this morning.

"All I know is that employees showed up work today and there were federal investigators at our offices," Bevan said this morning.

"The investigators were turning employees away, saying these facilities are shut down for several hours."

Department of Defense agents were leading the investigation, executing federal search warrants.

"We don't know the nature of it," Bevan said. "They are meeting with our security officers now."
