A Huntsville-based tech business is making strides in the Rocket City. The Geeks and Nerds expansion in Huntsville promises to bring jobs and an overall economic boost to our area!
About the expansion
A few of agreement’s highlights include expanding an existing facility in Cummings Research Park as well as building a second location downtown. Plus, certain tax breaks and reimbursements will also help fuel the expansion.
The end result of the expansion? For starters, a $5 million state-of-the-art facility along with a minimum of 100 more jobs!
In fact, construction on the new building is set to begin no later than March 2023 with an expected operational date by June 2024.
More about Geeks and Nerds
Before the Geeks and Nerds expansion in Huntsville, there was just one geek and nerd based in the Rocket City. The company was founded in 2004 to offer innovative technology solutions in the fields of defense, aerospace and commercial development.
GaN quickly grew to dozens of employees in offices across the country. By 2015, Geeks and Nerds, affectionately known as GaN, became an employee-owned company.
Currently, there are 93 employees. As part of the development agreement, that total will increase by 100 within five years.
What’s more, the homegrown business will offer competitive salaries that start at a minimum of $90,000 a year—not including benefits or overtime pay.
