Superion Expands Operations Center in Guilford County, North Carolina
The company currently has 155 full-time employees in High Point. The new jobs will include product support, professional services, and software development. The project will require office upgrades and new IT equipment.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our operations in High Point and building out a national Center of Excellence for our public safety software business,” said Simon Angove, CEO of Superion. “The business-friendly environment and access to a wealth of technical talent means we’ve enjoyed a lot of success in Guilford County.”
A performance-based grant of $160,000 from the One North Carolina Fund will help facilitate Superion’s expansion in Guilford County. The One N.C. Fund provides financial assistance to local governments to help attract economic investment and to create jobs. Companies receive no money upfront and must meet job creation and capital investment targets to qualify for payment. All One NC grants require a matching grant from local governments and any award is contingent upon that condition being met.
“Our state’s software and IT industry is strong and getting stronger,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “Jobs like Superion’s are in demand, and we’re committed to increasing the pool of talented tech professionals in North Carolina ready to fill that need."
“Superion has found success already in High Point, and I know they are making the right decision to expand here,” said North Carolina Commerce Secretary Anthony M. Copeland. “The customized training our community colleges will conduct, as well as our business climate and the health of our IT industry, will support Superion’s continued success.”
In addition to North Carolina Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, other key partners in the project include the N.C. General Assembly, the N.C. Community College System, the City of High Point, the High Point Economic Development Corporation, the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce and the Guilford County Economic Development Alliance.
