Networking Technologies and Support Inc. (NTS) has announced it will invest $1.5 million to expand its headquarters operation in Chesterfield County, VA. The project will create 140 new jobs over the next three years, and bump up its employee count to nearly 300 people.
NTS began as a two-person IT business in Chesterfield County in 1997. Today it is a full-service systems integrator providing customers with a single source for a broad range of high-technology products and services. The company currently serves 22 major metros in 15 states and the District of Columbia.
"Family and quality of life are of utmost importance to our NTS employees," said NTS President/CEO Bernard Robinson. "Add to that an extensive labor pool of skilled technology individuals and an excellent economic climate, [and] the logical choice for our headquarters and expansion is Chesterfield County, Virginia."
Jim Cheng, Virginia Secretary of Commerce and Trade, said NTS has built a solid customer base serving the IT needs of health centers in the mid-Atlantic, "and with this expansion will increase client capacity."
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Chesterfield County to secure the project for Virginia. Through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program, the Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide funding and services to support the company's recruitment, training and retraining activities. The company also qualifies for a Major Business Facility Job Tax Credit.
