SCRA said the center’s newest tenant provides technology development and support services to federal and commercial customers.
ATI, an SCRA affiliate company, had an existing working relationship with Victory Solutions, SCRA said in a news release. The two companies have worked on a project with the Department of Defense Ordnance Technology Consortium.
Victory Solutions recently decided to expand into South Carolina to be closer to a commercial client, the company said, and sought SCRA’s assistance to select a site. SCRA operates the Charleston Applied Research Center along with three innovation centers and two research parks across South Carolina.
“We are excited to expand our operations into South Carolina,” said Kris McGuire, founder and CEO of Victory Solutions Inc.
McGuire said the research center was in proximity to the company’s customer and had the space and security Victory Solutions needed. On its website, the company lists several aerospace companies among its customers, including Boeing and NASA.
“In these tough economic times, we are pleased to be moving to the Charleston area,” she said.
SCRA CEO Bill Mahoney congratulated Victory Solutions on its expansion to South Carolina.
“We look forward to SCRA’s continued work and collaborative successes,” he said.
SCRA is an applied research company that, among other activities, helps early stage companies commercialize innovations and employ workers. SCRA builds and manages research facilities that include wet labs, secure rooms for sensitive work and advanced high-tech manufacturing shops.
