iGATE, an information technology and services company, is bringing 250 new jobs to Loudoun County and building a $1 million facility in the area, Gov. Bob McDonnell announced Wednesday.
The company will perform a wide range of technology consulting services for government agencies and businesses, and will offer design, build, operate, maintain services for federal government projects.
“iGATE’s new Loudoun County operation gives the company the advantage to be close to its federal government customers and a pool of technology savvy employees,” Jim Cheng, Virginia’s secretary of commerce and trade, said in a statement. “International relationships are of utmost importance in a global marketplace, and Virginia’s marketing representative located in India had the opportunity to discuss this potential project with iGATE officials in Bangalore. I am confident that we will continue to build on this new corporate relationship and that the company will flourish in Loudoun County and the commonwealth.”
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Loudoun County to secure the project for Virginia. Through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program, the Virginia Department of Business Assistance will provide funding and services to support the company’s recruitment and training activities.
iGATE is headquartered in Fremont, Calif., and has locations around the world including India, Japan and Germany. The company has more than 27,000 employees and more than 360 clients.
