An employee-owned software company that serves the health care, defense and public sectors is opening an office at the Lowcountry Innovation Center in North Charleston.
Chantilly, Va.-based Agilex Technologies Inc. will open the new office to support the company’s work with the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center and other clients, the company said in a statement.
Agilex, which was founded in 2007, plans for the North Charleston location to provide management and support for large systems engineering projects and to offer software development expertise within government organizations.
The Lowcountry Innovation Center is a creative industries and technology incubator located at the Navy Yard at Noisette on part of the former Charleston Naval Base.
Rick Davis, Agilex’s director of strategic program delivery, said the Lowcountry Innovation Center will be an asset for the company.
“With diverse and highly qualified technical partners available throughout the center, it will strengthen our ability to meet our clients’ unique requirements,” Davis said. “It is also a flexible facility, which suits the highly collaborative approach that we champion.”
North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey said bringing companies like Agilex to the area is a big part of the city’s long-term strategy for creating a nationally focused tech corridor at the Navy Yard at Noisette.
“Agilex is a stellar addition to North Charleston’s growing list of technology-based companies,” Summey said in a statement. “Their track record with providing innovative technology solutions to critical federal missions is very impressive.
