“In fact, the need is so high that just as our expansion came to a close, we began to actively pursue an additional 10,000 square feet of space — also in Arlington County — to be dedicated to clients requiring compliance with highly specialized technical requirements.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership collaborated with Arlington to win the project, and the Virginia Jobs Investment Program will assist Technomics.

It offers consulting services and funds to businesses that are expanding their workforce to help with employee recruitment and training.
