Pangiam Plans Fairfax County, Virginia, Global Headquarters

Pangiam, an emerging technology company streamlining the travel and security industries, will invest $3.1 million to establish its global headquarters in Fairfax County, Virginia. The $3.1 million project is expected to create 201 jobs over the next three years.

“We chose Virginia as our headquarters for a variety of reasons. First, it’s home. Our leadership team is either from Virginia or built their careers and families here, so it was only right to build and try to contribute to the local community when we started Pangiam,” said Pangiam’s Chief Investment Officer Tom Plofchan.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority to secure the project and will support Pangiam’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities.

As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for citizens.

“Pangiam’s decision to officially join Virginia’s corporate roster is another boost for the Commonwealth’s thriving technology industry, which boasts the highest concentration of its workers in the United States,” noted Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “We thank the company for developing critical security software that helps keep our nation safe and for creating 201 new jobs in Fairfax County.”

Pangiam is a leading provider of facial recognition technology, cloud-based applications, and data-driven digital identity solutions to customers across the global transportation and security sectors.
