Acentia will invest $3.1 million to move its headquarters to Fairfax County, VA, and create 60 new jobs according to an announcement by Gov. Bob McDonnell. The company will occupy two floors of office space on the Fairview Park business campus located in the Falls Church area.

McDonnell said the region's strong technology-based workforce and access to both federal customers and business partners made the Commonwealth "the right choice" for the firm.

Acentia provides technology and management solutions to the federal government and commercial markets for programs of national significance.

The Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide funding and services to support the company's recruitment and training activities.

"As a company with very aggressive growth plans, we are excited about the possibilities that moving our headquarters to Virginia presents to our customers and the entire Acentia team," said CEO Todd Stottlemyer.
