MI Technical Solutions, Inc., a small government company providing information technology services for naval vessels, will invest $520,000 to expand its facilities in Chesapeake, Virginia. The project should create 10 new jobs.

The company will add 4,000 square feet of office space at 820 Greenbrier Circle to accommodate increased staffing associated with recently awarded US Navy contracts.

“I formed MITS when I left the US Navy after 28 years of service, and our customer base and potential employees are located in this area,” said Michael Ihrig, CEO of MI Technical Solutions, Inc. “I am very grateful that MITS is in Chesapeake, which has supported our phenomenal growth over the past year, and we look forward to the next few years as we continue to grow.

Founded in 2004 and based in Chesapeake, MI Technical Solutions is a global information technology and engineering company that provides IT services for military vessels, including naval vessels, aircraft carriers and submarines. . The company develops products and services using its expertise in mobile applications, software development, machine learning and artificial intelligence. MITS is a Certified Virginia Values ​​Veterans (V3) company and was recently awarded the 2020 HIRE Vets Medallion by the U.S. Department of Labor for its veteran recruitment, employment, and retention efforts.

“MI Technical Solutions’ growth over the past year has been impressive, serving an important market in the growing technology industry,” said Commerce Secretary Brian Ball. “We are proud to support the expansion of this V3-certified company, and look forward to its continued success in the city of Chesapeake.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with the City of Chesapeake to secure the project for the Commonwealth. VEDP will support MI Technical Solution’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides advisory services and funding to companies creating new jobs to support employee recruitment and training activities. As a business incentive supporting economic development, the VJIP reduces human resource costs for new and expanding businesses. VJIP is publicly funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to improving employment opportunities for citizens.

“The expansion of MI Technical represents significant growth for the information technology sector in Chesapeake,” said Steven Wright, Director of Economic Development for the City of Chesapeake. “The company’s investment will help strengthen our close ties with our military partners and create well-paying jobs for our citizens.”
