MI Technical Solutions Expands Chesapeake, Virginia, Operations
The company will add 4,000 square feet of office space at 820 Greenbrier Circle to accommodate an increase in staffing associated with recently awarded contracts from the U.S. Navy.
“I formed MITS when I transitioned from the U.S. Navy after 28 years of service, and our client base and potential employees are located in this area,” said Michael Ihrig, CEO of MI Technical Solutions, Inc. “I am very thankful for the fact that MITS is in Chesapeake, which has supported our phenomenal growth during the past year. We are looking forward to the next few years as we continue to expand.”
Founded in 2004 and based in Chesapeake, MI Technical Solutions is a global information technology and engineering business that provides IT services for military vessels, including warships, aircraft carriers, and submarines. The company develops products and services using its expertise in mobile applications, software development, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. MITS is a Virginia Values Veterans (V3)-certified company and was recently awarded the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion by the U.S. Department of Labor for its efforts to recruit, employ, and retain veterans.
“MI Technical Solutions’ growth over the past year is impressive, serving an important market in the booming technology industry,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. “We are proud to support the expansion of this V3-certified company, and we look forward to its continued success in the City of Chesapeake.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the City of Chesapeake to secure the project for the Commonwealth. VEDP will support MI Technical Solution’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs 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.
“MI Technical’s expansion represents important growth of the information technology sector in Chesapeake,” said Steven Wright, Economic Development Director for the City of Chesapeake. “The company’s investment will help strengthen our deep connections with our military partners and create good-paying jobs for our citizens.”
