Virginia Beach company to invest $12.2 million in new facility
InMotion Hosting Inc., a web hosting company, is purchasing a new building that will double its office space and create 50 new jobs in Virginia Beach, Gov. Ralph Northam announced Tuesday.
The company, which employs 280 people and provides server space for small to mid-sized businesses in several data centers across the country, plans to invest $12.2 million in a 61,000-square-foot facility near its current office on Sentara Way, where the majority of the company’s technical support and customer service operations will be located.
Virginia competed with California and Colorado for the project, the governor’s press release said. The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support InMotion’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which provides consultative services and funding to companies that are creating new jobs to support employee recruitment and training.
“Helping small businesses like InMotion Hosting thrive is an important part of our efforts to expand and diversify Virginia’s economy,” Northam said.
