Fairfax County, Virginia USA – Governor Terry McAuliffe announced today that IOMAXIS, a privately held technology engineering company that offers disruptive solutions in advanced communications, networking and computing, will invest $3.8 million to expand its cybersecurity-related operations in Fairfax County. The expansion will add 555 jobs over three years.
IOMAXIS was incorporated in Austin, Texas, and has offices in San Antonio and Silicon Valley as well as the Springfield and Lorton communities of Fairfax County. The company provides advanced technology solutions and direct engineering support to leading technology companies as well as the U.S. Department of Defense, the intelligence community, national law enforcement and homeland security agencies and other organizations throughout the marketplace.
“IOMAXIS has a presence in several communities and could have chosen to expand in any of them, so I am gratified that the company chose to base its growth in Fairfax County,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. “Our strengths in a number of IT sectors, our workforce and access to many of the company’s customers make this a wise decision.”
“As technology for organizations, consumers and governments around the world evolves and threats continue to heighten at an increasingly rapid pace, so does the importance of our work. We will continue to make it our mission to fight, overcome and thwart future threats for our wide portfolio of clients,” said Bob Burleson, CEO of IOMAXIS. “To stay ahead of that challenge requires a talented, diverse workforce and policies friendly to small companies seeking to grow rapidly. Virginia provides these things, and we are very excited to be expanding our operations in the state.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support IOMAXIS’ job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). State-funded VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating jobs or experiencing technological change to support employee training activities.
