Bethesda IT firm InfoZen will add 100 new jobs in the County, the company announced Dec. 20.
“After more than 20 years in business, I’m very pleased with the state of Maryland’s efforts to support InfoZen’s continued growth in the region and to make it attractive for our employees to remain in the area while bringing new talent from surrounding areas,” said Raj Ananthanpillai, InfoZen’s chairman, CEO and president in a news release.
The Department of Homeland Security awarded InfoZen a $208 million contract in September to help “modernize” the department’s Office of Technology in the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services.
The company also plans to spend at least $ 2 million on upgrading its office on Rockledge Drive in Bethesda.
To help the company expand, the Maryland Department of Commerce approved $200,000 in a conditional loan to InfoZen, and the County will provide the company $100,000 in conditional grants to the company through the Economic Development Fund.
“Montgomery County values InfoZen and the critical work it performs in IT services, solutions, and security,” said Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett.
“We are happy to support its expansion in the County.”
