Forecasts project we will double our size over the next 24 months. We are excited to be moving our headquarters to Tampa.”
“Greater Tampa Bay is home to an abundance of colleges and universities in addition to the home of MacDill AFB. The I-4 Corridor has rapidly grown into the third largest defense contracting community in the US, and Tampa attracts a diverse and technologically-fluent employee base from some of the best local colleges, universities, and the military.

The Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation assisted CWU with connections to resource partners to assist with relocations for new employees recruited from outside of the area and identified training grant opportunities the company can utilize as they continue their growth.
“We are pleased to welcome CWU to Hillsborough County as they execute the next phase of their company’s growth strategy,” said Dr. Ken Atwater, Chairman of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation and President of Hillsborough Community College. “Tampa offers CWU access to a deep pool of multilingual talent, close proximity to MacDill Air Force Base, and easy connectivity to global locations via Tampa International Airport.
