MAXIMUS Locates Customer Support Center In Hampton, Virginia

11/15/2016
MAXIMUS, a government contractor that provides program management and administrative services, will invest $1.87 million to establish a customer support center in the City of Hampton, Virginia. The new operation, which will create 189 new jobs, will support government contracts across the country.

“The decision by MAXIMUS to invest and grow their company in Virginia is a testament to the unrivaled business climate that the Commonwealth provides,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe. “We are honored to welcome MAXIMUS to the City of Hampton, where they will benefit from that community’s world-class economic infrastructure and contribute to our efforts to build a new Virginia economy.”

“MAXIMUS has a rich heritage in Virginia. We were founded in the Commonwealth more than 40 years ago, and today it is home to our global corporate headquarters. When we searched for a location for our new customer support center, the Hampton and Hampton Roads region was a natural fit due to its robust pool of qualified candidates,” said MAXIMUS CEO Richard A. Montoni.

As an incentive, the Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with the City of Hampton to secure the project for Virginia. MAXIMUS is eligible to receive state benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program, administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.

“Hampton’s workforce is a perfect match for MAXIMUS,” said Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck. “We have military spouses and those who transition from the service every year. They have a dedicated work ethic and a strong desire to serve a company that is passionate about its mission to provide services.”
