Integrated Biometric Technology, which specializes in biometric technologies for identity authentication, identity management and criminal history background checks through the FBI, will establish new operations and locate its corporate headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee.
The $2.3 million project is expected to create 142 jobs in Williamson County.
“IBT is excited to establish our headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee. We are a biometric technology company providing services to state and federal governments as well as the consumer markets through our sports and entertainment products. Being part of the Williamson County community will greatly assist and enhance our future development and growth,” Charles Carroll, CEO of Integrated Biometric Technology said.
IBT was originally founded in 1999 as an alternative to the traditional fingerprinting methods. After 9/11, IBT partnered with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to implement biometric enrollment and state criminal history checks.
“A company establishing its headquarters in Tennessee is a testament to our state’s pro-business environment and quality of life. We continue to see an uptick in technology companies choosing to locate operations in Middle Tennessee, and IBT will continue this momentum with the creation of 140 new jobs,” noted TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
