Prism Network has bought a new home in West Seneca.

Prism, which provides specialty network managed care services, paid $1.5 million for a Transit Road building that was previously the headquarters of Comptek Research. Moog Inc. had owned the complex.

For Prism, the move to West Seneca is another notch in its growth chart. Three years ago, it moved to its present home in the Village of Lancaster, in a former Masonic temple. At that time, it had about 55 employees; now it has 95.

"We're growing leaps and bounds," said Paul Candino, Prism's president and chief executive officer. "We're out of space."

Prism plans to move to West Seneca this summer, Candino said. It plans to use more than 60 percent of the building, and wants to lease the rest to another company.

The 20-year-old office building was designed by the late Peter Castle, the same architect who designed an addition to Rich Products' headquarters on Niagara Street that critics praised.

Moog later bought the building, then leased it to Comptek Research in the mid-1990s. Comptek was subsequently acquired by Northrop Grumman, Amherst Systems' parent, and left the space last summer, said Ed Mills, a broker with J.R. Militello Realty Co.

Prism offers management and network services in chiropractic, physical therapy and behavioral health care.

"We've expanded in the breadth of services we offer," Candino said.
