Advanced IT Concepts, Inc. will invest $1.87 million to expand its corporate headquarters in Seminole County, Florida. AITC provides systems integration, professional services and value-added resale of Information Technology solutions to both the government and private sectors. The expansion in Winter Springs will bring 50 new jobs to the area over the next five years.
Governor Rick Scott said, “AITC’s addition of 50 jobs in Seminole County is great news. Now more Floridians will have the opportunity find a job and support their families. Since December 2010 Florida businesses like AITC have created more than 580,000 private-sector jobs. This announcement is further proof that Florida is the best place in the nation to get a job and raise a family.”
“We sincerely thank Governor Scott, his team and Seminole County government for providing the environment, resources and support needed for this significant step. The support received by AITC will allow us to focus on growing the company and creating new jobs to better serve our clients,” said Gabriel Ruiz, AITC’s President/CEO.
Enterprise Florida’s President/CEO, Gray Swoope, said, “AITC adds value to several of Florida’s industries. This expansion is great for Florida’s IT and defense sector, and the company has proven its ability to thrive as a small business in the Sunshine State. Florida’s resources, including a strong workforce, expansive infrastructure and strategic partnerships, have created one of the top business climates in the country. We’re excited to see the growth of AITC and I look forward to their continued success.”
This project was made possible with the help of close partnerships between Enterprise Florida, the Orlando Economic Development Commission, Seminole County and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.
“AITC’s story of growth as a Florida business is confirmation that our sound economic policies and business-friendly environment are working. The accomplishments achieved by AITC’s founders demonstrate that Florida is a great place for veterans to start or grow their businesses. Florida’s economy is a place where everyone has the opportunity to succeed through innovation, creativity, and hard work,” said Jesse Panuccio, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.
“Orlando is a world leader in defense technology – by both large and enterprising small businesses. We’re pleased with AITC’s decision to expand locally and create jobs that will bolster our region’s reputation as a premier location for innovation and skilled workforce,” said Rick Weddle, President/CEO of the Orlando Economic Development Commission.
