Government contractor to establish customer support center in Hampton
Government contractor MAXIMUS is planning to open a customer support center Hampton.
The company plans to spend $1.87 million to establish the call center, which is expected to create 189 new jobs.
Virginia competed against Pennsylvania and Texas for the project, according to Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
“MAXIMUS has a rich heritage in Virginia. We were founded in the commonwealth more than 40 years ago, and today it is home to our global corporate headquarters. When we searched for a location for our new customer support center, the Hampton and Hampton Roads region was a natural fit due to its robust pool of qualified candidates,” MAXIMUS CEO Richard A. Montoni said in a statement.
MAXIMUS, based in Reston, provides business process management and technology solutions for governments. The company has 16,000 employees around the world and partners with government agencies in the U.S., Australia, Canada, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom.
MAXIMUS is eligible to receive state benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program, administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development. Funding and services to support the company’s employee training activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
