Velociti, a provider of technology deployment services, plans to move its headquarters and consolidate its primary operations at Horizons Industrial Park in Riverside, Missouri in a move that is expected to create 97 jobs.
Velociti provides technology deployment services to a global clientele, specializing in the installation, project management, and support of a broad range of transportation and networking technology products.
"We are thrilled that another high-tech, IT-based company is moving to the Show-Me State with plans to create nearly 100 new high-paying jobs for hardworking Missourians," said Chris Pieper, Acting Director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development. "This announcement is more evidence of the positive direction of Missouri's economy under the leadership of Governor Nixon, with thousands of new jobs created in the past two years and an unemployment rate that remains consistently well below the national unemployment rate."
"We've spent the past year looking at potential spaces on both sides of the state line," said Velociti CEO Michael Kahn. " While we found excellent facilities throughout the metropolitan area, we believe that the newly constructed Horizons Industrial Park will best accommodate our rapidly expanding call center and state-of-the-art staging and configuration facility, and that its proximity to an international airport will be appreciated by our global and out-of-town visiting customers and suppliers."
To assist Velociti with its move from Kansas City, Kansas, to Platte County, Missouri the Department of Economic Development authorized an economic incentive package that includes incentives from the Missouri Quality Jobs and Recruitment Assistance programs.
