IT services company to invest $3.1 million and create 60 new jobs
Governor Bob McDonnell today announced that Acentia, a premier provider of technology and management solutions to the federal government and commercial markets, will invest $3.1 million as it moves its headquarters to Fairfax County from Montgomery County, Md. The move creates 60 new jobs in Fairfax County.
Acentia is moving its headquarters to 3130 Fairview Park Drive in the Falls Church area of Fairfax County. Nearly 200 employees will occupy two floors of the 46,000 square-foot office space. The Fairview Park business campus also is the headquarters for three Fortune 500 companies: CSC, General Dynamics and Northrop Grumman.
Acentia is a premier employer and provider of technology and management solutions that help customers meet their mission-critical requirements on programs of national significance. Its professionals build trusted relationships with customers by tackling their most difficult challenges while consistently demonstrating value to customers across the federal government and commercial markets.
“By providing access to a highly-skilled and highly-trained workforce and offering geographic proximity to our customers and partners, Fairfax County is uniquely positioned to support our existing and future growth plans,” said Todd Stottlemyer, CEO of Acentia. “We are excited about the possibilities that moving our headquarters to Fairfax County presents to our customers and the entire Acentia team.”
"We are honored to have another high-quality employer moving into Fairfax County and delighted to have a former member of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority Commission back working and creating jobs in the county and Commonwealth," said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA).
The FCEDA worked with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership to secure the project for Virginia. Through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program, the Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide funding and services to support the company’s recruitment and training activities.
