IT company says it plans to double its local workforce to 150 within two years.
Emtec Inc., an information technology consulting company, announced Thursday it is relocating its headquarters from Radnor, Pennsylvania, to its Jacksonville office Sept. 1.
The company’s Southside office is at 9454 Philips Highway in the Interstate South Commerce Center.
Emtec said the relocation is part of an effort to expand its client base in Florida and the region, increase support for existing customers and support the launch of its cybersecurity services.
The company said it plans to double its Jacksonville workforce to 150 within two years.
For the past five years, the company has partnered with Duval County Public Schools to host a summer internship program, rehabbing computers and projectors in schools across the county.
“When we started looking at moving our headquarters, we had numerous options available,” CFO Gregory Chandler said in a news release. “Not only have the city of Jacksonville and DCPS been great partners for over 15 years, but when we mentioned our search, the local community rallied around the idea of Jacksonville being our top choice. In addition to the growing economy and talent base, we found the quality of life/low cost of living in Jacksonville and Florida compelling.”
