“Florida’s IT sector continues to grow and impact the state’s economy thanks to companies like LabTech Software. Because of Florida’s resources, including a top-ranked workforce, expansive infrastructure and strategic partnerships, LabTech has the opportunity to thrive in our state. We continue to work toward making Florida’s IT industry the best in the country and look forward to seeing LabTech’s success.” said Gray Swoope, President/CEO of Enterprise Florida.
This project was made possible with the help of Enterprise Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation, Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa.
Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Jesse Panuccio said, “We are continuing to see job growth in the STEM-related fields in the state as a result of our investment in a business-friendly environment, infrastructure, and workforce training. The creation of an additional 100 information technology jobs in Florida represents another step forward in the economic resurgence of the Sunshine State.”
Governor Rick Scott said, “LabTech’s expansion and creation of 100 new jobs means even more Floridians in the Tampa area will be able to provide for their families and live the American Dream. We’ve worked hard to create an opportunity economy with jobs for the next generation, and thanks to companies like LabTech, Florida businesses have created 643,100 private-sector jobs since December 2010.”
LabTech Software joins a growing list of companies that have recently made the decision to expand their IT workforce in Tampa and Hillsborough County, including Tribridge, Peak 10, ConnectWise, Cardinal Solutions Group, DTCC and OpenText, the Governor’s Office said.
“Companies like LabTech Software are bringing the jobs of tomorrow to Tampa today,” said Mayor Bob Buckhorn, City of Tampa. “We’re working hard to build a stronger, more diverse economy, and will continue to do all we can to support the success and expansion of our local IT industry.”
“The competition for IT jobs is fierce, and this project was no exception,” said Allen Brinkman, Chair of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation and Chairman/President/CEO of SunTrust Bank Tampa Bay. “Thanks to the support of our state and local partners, LabTech Software selected Tampa in favor of potential locations in Ohio, Massachusetts and London, proving the Tampa Bay region is a premiere destination for high-tech business growth.”
