During the third quarter of 2010, the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA, www.FairfaxCountyEDA.org) provided services and resources to 36 businesses that created or will create almost 1,000 jobs in Fairfax County. Most of these businesses are in the information technology and professional services sectors, and several are foreign-owned firms using a Fairfax County location to expand in the U.S. market.
Among the businesses that are creating jobs in Fairfax County:
- Northrop Grumman, which recently announced its headquarters move to Fairfax County and is adding 300 jobs and
- Chenega Federal Systems, a registered Alaska Native Corporation, which is growing by 150 jobs.
“Even as much of the rest of the country struggles economically, Fairfax County continues to be a success story because of the quality of the workforce here, the proximity to customers and partners, and the easy access to global markets,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the FCEDA. “These companies are building the commercial tax base, which helps our Board of Supervisors fund the high-quality public services for which the county is known.”
Below are companies that worked with the FCEDA in July, August and September of 2010 and are creating 999 jobs in Fairfax County:
