Ridgeline International Inc. announces $1.75M expansion
A fast-growing technology solutions company will invest $1.75 million to expand in Fairfax County, creating 162 jobs, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced today.
The company, Ridgeline International Inc., offers technology solutions for the federal government, commercial and nonprofit sectors. It said the expansion aims to increase its ability to provide security solutions.
Founded in 2015, Ridgeline has more than 200 employees. It was one of 15 Virginia tech companies to land on Deloitte’s 26th annual North America Technology Fast 500 Rankings in November. The company posted 588% fiscal year revenue growth from 2016 to 2019.
“Being headquartered in Virginia allows Ridgeline to tap a rich pipeline of highly qualified job applicants and gives us direct access to our target markets,” Ridgeline CEO Erik Wittreich said in a statement.
The expansion received an assist from the Virginia Economic Development Partnership’s Virginia Jobs Investment Program, in cooperation with the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority.
“The company is a perfect fit for the mission-oriented IT ecosystem that thrives here and will benefit from the workforce that makes Northern Virginia and the Washington, D.C., area one of the largest hubs for tech talent,” Fairfax County Economic Development Authority President and CEO Victor Hoskins said in a statement.
