Ventech Solutions Inc., a Columbus-based information technology company that specializes in system integration and consulting services for the public sector and government offices, announced that it will more than double its headquarters staff, adding 75 new jobs to its current staff of 65. The company will start hiring in first quarter 2016 to fill analyst, developer, administrative, accounting and customer support positions. It will invest $750,000 in workforce training and add 5,500 square feet to its existing facility to make room for an innovation lab.
“Ventech is experiencing tremendous growth and demand for our services, and the Columbus Region’s vibrant IT ecosystem provides us with the support we need to sustain our growth,” said Ravi Kunduru, founder and president of Ventech Solutions. “As we continued to expand, the Region’s innovative collaborative business climate, emphasis on advanced workforce development, and robust labor pool played a critical role in our decision to increase our presence in Columbus.”
Ventech’s headquarters expansion follows on the heels of the company’s recent winning of several high profile federal and state projects, including a $410 million contract announced in spring 2015 for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The company’s clients span globally and across more than a dozen U.S. states, with physical presences in Ohio, New Mexico, Maryland, Virginia and Iowa.
“We are thrilled and honored that Ventech Solutions chose to grow its Columbus headquarters, the second expansion in our city in two years,” said Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther. “Columbus is proud to be called home to a company of Ventech’s caliber. We are committed to providing the resources and support necessary to help our businesses grow and succeed.”
Information technology operations in the Region benefit from a leading workforce fed by top ranked educational programs and a thriving IT industry cluster that ranges from consulting startups to Fortune 500 companies.
