Unisys Corporation Opens Client Service Center In Augusta, Georgia

02/01/2016
Unisys Corporation officially opened its client service center in Augusta, Georgia. The company plans to create up to 700 jobs during a 5-year period. After operating in temporary quarters, Unisys occupied the 68,000-square-foot facility – part of the Augusta Riverwalk complex in the heart of the city.

"Locating our newest U.S. service center in Augusta has proven to be a winning move," said Unisys Federal President Venkatapathi "PV" Puvvada. "We've attracted a smart, dedicated local workforce – including many veterans from nearby Fort Gordon – who are providing world-class services every day to clients around the world. We are grateful to Governor Deal and to the state and local partners who have championed our presence in Augusta since the beginning. We look forward to contributing further to the growth of this vibrant community."

"Unisys has made a significant economic impact within the Augusta-Richmond County area in a short time," said Governor Nathan Deal. "Georgia is able to provide Unisys with support that strengthens its competitive position in the state and enhances its ability to provide our citizens with high-quality jobs. We are proud to offer a top-ranked business climate that has boosted the technology sector statewide."

Unisys uses the Augusta center to provide IT support services to a range of commercial and government clients, including the Army Enterprise Service Desk program, in which Unisys provides a single point of contact for U.S. Army personnel requiring those services. Unisys continues to work with the Georgia Department of Labor, Augusta Economic Development Authority and Fort Gordon Cyber Center of Excellence to recruit IT professionals for the client service center.
