Sev1Tech is looking to strengthen its South Carolina presence with the opening of an expanded facility in Charleston.
The information technology company said Thursday the building will be a tool for the delivery of its modernization, cybersecurity and engineering services to both current and future clientele, particularly U.S. Navy customers.
Bob Lohfeld, CEO of Sev1Tech, explained that the company’s increased footprint in the area reflects its “commitment to the community and customers we serve here.”
“Sev1Tech looks forward to deepening our ties to the community, growing our customer base in the area, and bringing even more high-tech jobs to Charleston,” Lohfeld continued.
The primary focus of the Charleston Sev1Tech offices is the Navy operations, as well as custom services for military branches such as the Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic and the Coast Guard. At the facilities, the company’s team works to offer broad-impact DevSecOps, cloud and dynamic mission support processes.
With its evolved and forward-looking capabilities, the newly expanded facility is designed to equip the company to keep pace with developments in digital needs and defense IT specifications.
Facility innovations were meant to also allow Sev1Tech to be a stronger collaborator to sailors, Marines and combat persons, according to Patrick Fitzgerald, U.S. Navy programs lead at Sev1Tech.
The facility will empower the company to “grow our U.S. Navy business unit and extend our innovative mission-centric solutions to more customers, enabling them to successfully overcome ever-changing threats,” Fitzgerald continued.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held recently to mark the occasion of the facility’s opening. In attendance was Charleston Mayor R. Keith Summey, as well as the company’s executive leadership, staff and some of its customer base.
Growth in Charleston follows Sev1Tech’s acquisition of DevSecOps and engineering services provider Geocent in October. This purchase, along with the facility amplification, demonstrates the company’s deepening engineering portfolio.
