Monday, December 5, 2011

During the third quarter of 2011, the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) provided services and resources to 41 businesses that are adding 1,146 jobs in Fairfax County. Most of these businesses are in the information technology and professional services sectors, and five are foreign-owned firms using a Fairfax County location to expand in North America.

One of the most prominent announcements came from ITT Exelis, a spinoff from ITT Corporation that established its new corporate headquarters in Tysons Corner and is adding 70 jobs to the county economy.

Other businesses that are creating jobs in Fairfax County: 

  • AppAssure Software, which develops backup and disaster recovery software, adding 150 jobs;
  • CACI International, which provides IT security solutions, adding 202 jobs.
  • Comter Systems, a Small Business Administration-certified minority-owned 8(a) company that provides management consulting and IT services, adding 12 jobs.
  • XO Communications, one of the nation’s largest communications service providers, adding 80 jobs.

“Our headquarters in Tysons Corner is a wonderful place to be,” David F. Melcher, chief executive officer and president of ITT Exelis, said at a November 8 event dedicating the new company’s headquarters. “It’s a vibrant place, a great location with access to the businesses and partners we want to be close to, in a state that really wanted us here.”

“Companies in a range of technology and professional services sectors continue to create jobs in Fairfax County and add to the county’s economic diversity and stability, which boosts the commercial tax base and the quality of life that residents enjoy here,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the FCEDA.
