IT Innovator to Create 500 new jobs to drive growth in Michigan
SOMERSET, NJ, April 2010 – GalaxE.Solutions®, Inc. a leading IT solutions provider which supports healthcare, retail, e-commerce and additional business sectors, has announced plans to open a new software development facility in downtown Detroit, Michigan. As part of its commitment to supporting job growth in Detroit, GalaxE. Solutions is planning to grow the new facility to 500 new positions over the next five years.
Many of the company’s clients, including renowned retailers, healthcare giants and exceptional e-commerce providers, have customers or operations in the Detroit area, and the opening of the center will enhance GalaxE.Solutions’ ability to serve these business partners as well as the consumers who benefit from their services. GalaxE.Solutions is at the forefront of IT solutions for the healthcare industry and is recognized for its leadership and innovation in growth industries and across vertical channels, including e-commerce as well as bricks and mortar retail.
“We are very pleased to be a driving force of new employment in Detroit. Information technology is at the forefront of the economic turnaround, and the Detroit area is poised to be a new hub for the merging of technological innovation and healthcare. Our facility provides new job opportunities for Michigan’s talented workforce, and enables us to deliver value to our clients and, by extension, to their customers and shareholders. Supporting our clients’ business objectives is a company mandate as well as a cornerstone of our business and will be reinforced with the opening of the Detroit office,” said Tim Bryan, Chairman and CEO, GalaxE.Solutions.
“GalaxE.Solutions’ decision to invest in Michigan is yet another sign that we have the high-tech workforce and business infrastructure necessary for growing companies in the technology sector to expand. GalaxE.Solutions commitment is great news for Michigan, Detroit, and our citizens,” said Governor Jennifer M. Granholm.
Located in downtown Detroit’s Creative Corridor, the 27,000 sq. ft. space will be operational immediately. The company plans an investment of approximately $4.2 million for site development. With offices in New York, NY, Somerset, NJ, Toronto, Canada, and Bangalore, India, the opening of the Detroit office represents a projected 50% incremental growth in the number of company employees.
“Now is the time for entrepreneurial companies like GalaxE.Solutions to take a leadership role in developing high-value jobs in cities such as Detroit, which have been severely impacted by negative economic factors. We sought a region with an IT footprint, where we could offer employment to ready and qualified individuals, who might not otherwise get the opportunity,” said Mr. Bryan.
Detroit was chosen as the location for this investment after considering several other U.S. cities. The turnaround in business services in Detroit reflects an improving commercial environment. As a source of healthcare services, Detroit has consistently added jobs in this area over the past 11 years, and is expected to continue to grow, making the city an optimal location for GalaxE.Solutions expansion.
Supporting local development and communities is an integral part of GalaxE Solutions’ mission. As a member of the Detroit and Michigan communities, GalaxE.Solutions will seek to expand its model of working with local schools to assist in the training and development of high school and college students, particularly the low-income and disadvantaged.
