InfoZen, an advanced IT services and solutions provider for the federal government, is expanding its corporate headquarters in Montgomery County, Maryland. The company will create 100 new jobs by the end of next year.
The company is currently renovating its office space on Rockledge Drive and adding an additional 25,000 square feet to accommodate its growing workforce. InfoZen plans to spend at least $2 million on improvements, including furniture, fixtures, and computer equipment.
“After more than 20 years in business, I’m very pleased with the state of Maryland’s efforts to support InfoZen’s continued growth in the region and to make it attractive for our employees to remain in the area while bringing new talent from surrounding areas,” said Raj Ananthanpillai, InfoZen’s Chairman, CEO, and President.
In September, the company was awarded a $208 million federal contract from the Department of Homeland Security to help modernize the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) Office of Information Technology (OIT). InfoZen will assist the USCIS Office of Information Technology to provide information technology expertise, strategic vision and tactical implementation to enable USCIS to deliver effective, efficient, and secure immigration services and products.
To support the expansion, the Maryland Department of Commerce has approved a $200,000 conditional loan through the Maryland Economic Development Assistance Authority and Fund (MEDAAF). Additionally, Montgomery County has provided a $100,000 conditional grant through its Economic Development Fund. The company is also eligible for a number of state and local tax credits.
“Creating jobs and helping businesses grow here in Maryland is a top priority of our administration,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “InfoZen is part of a robust sector of high-tech companies that have chosen to grow and expand in Maryland this year – a testament to our high-quality workforce and increasingly competitive state economy.”
