Recently Named Government Contractor of the Year Expands to Charleston to Support SPAWAR and Other Strategic ClientsIn a statement released this morning, the Lowcountry Innovation Center announced that Agilex Technologies, Inc., a Chantilly, VA-based company, will be opening a new office at the center. The company is an employee-owned provider of mission and technology solutions to the national security, healthcare and public sectors.
Agilex’ North Charleston presence will support the company’s growing relationship, as a SeaPort-e contract holder, with the U.S. Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR). The office will provide management and support for large systems engineering projects and will offer dedicated expertise in the use of agile software development methodologies within major government organizations.
Founded in 2007, Agilex has witnessed explosive growth with an impressive client list of federal, state and local governments. Recently, the company was named a 2011 Greater Washington Government Contractor of the Year. In 2010, the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) also honored Agilex as the organization’s “Hottest Emerging Government Contractor”. The Washington Business Journal has ranked the company “# 1” (2010) and “# 12” (2011) on its annual list of the Washington region’s fastest growing companies. As part of CRN’s Fast Growth 100 List, Agilex was also named the 19th fastest growing solution provider in North America for 2011.
“Agilex is a stellar addition to North Charleston’s growing list of technology-based companies,” says Mayor R. Keith Summey of North Charleston. “Their track record with providing innovative technology solutions to critical federal missions is very impressive. Bringing companies like Agilex to the area is a big part of our long-term strategy to create a nationally-focused tech corridor at the Navy Yard.”
Rick Davis, Agilex Director of Strategic Program Delivery, believes that the Lowcountry Innovation Center will be an asset for the company. “The LIC is a great facility for technology companies,” he says. “With diverse and highly qualified technical partners available throughout the center, it will strengthen our ability to meet our client’s unique requirements. It is also a flexible facility, which suits the highly collaborative approach that we champion.”
