ForceX Invests $1.8 Million To Establish Operations Center-Headquarters In Nashville, Tennessee
“In Nashville, opportunities for growth, networking and community abound,” Tracy Guarino, President/CEO of ForceX, said. “The move to Charlotte Avenue not only provides us with a centralized location for our national customer base, but it also allows us to take advantage of the wonderful support system Nashville has put in place for growing technology companies. In addition, the entire team will now have access to – and be a part of – the thriving downtown culture and energy.”
ForceX, an industry leader in Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance software development and geospatial application technology programs, was founded in Clarksville, Tennessee, in 2004. Since then, the company has grown from three employees to over 120. ForceX plans to retain a Clarksville location in addition to the Nashville headquarters.
“Tennessee is becoming nationally recognized for its entrepreneurship and innovation, drawing talent from all corners of the globe,” Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said. “Our state has a rich history of producing cutting edge ideas that change the way the world operates. Under Tracy Guarino’s effective leadership, ForceX is leading the way in new and vital technologies that set Tennessee apart. I am pleased ForceX can take advantage of the support that exists to grow technology companies, and I appreciate the high quality jobs they are creating in the Nashville area. I look forward to their continued presence and further expansion in Tennessee.”
“This investment by ForceX is a testament to Nashville’s business-friendly environment and our deep and talented workforce,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “I thank the company for choosing to expand in Nashville and create 175 jobs here with plans for even more growth. We are particularly pleased ForceX chose to be part of the redevelopment of Charlotte Avenue, a dynamic corridor in our city. This announcement is further validation that fast-growing companies are attracted to the vibrant business environment in our city.”
