Global Guardian to expand in Fairfax
Global Guardian announced Wednesday it would expand its corporate headquarters in Tysons.
The security and risk-management firm will spend $1.3 million to add office space and new technology to its operations center. The project will create 22 jobs.
Global Guardian provides security services to help clients mitigate the risks of traveling and doing business overseas and domestically. Services include personnel tracking, emergency response, security and transportation support, intelligence, medical support and transportation, emergency aviation, cybersecurity and video surveillance.
The company recently acquired Air Ambulance Card LLC, a Birmingham, Ala.-based firm offering medical evacuation services.
“There are countless opportunities for a company with our capabilities, and the local market is filled with motivated and talented people that have real-world experience in security, government, and international business,” Global Guardian CEO Dale Buckner said in a statement.
Global Guardian will receive support from the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
