Rural Sourcing, a tech company from Atlanta, has invested $3 million into a new hub in Fort Wayne, Indiana per a company announcement this weekend.
The new development center, which is Rural Sourcing’s first midwest hub, will employ nearly 150 people. The company is expected to invest some $35 million in the new development center over the next five years, as it usually does in its other locations.
Rural Sourcing specializes in IT outsourcing like software development and cloud platforming.
“Here in the Crossroads of America, Indiana is perfectly positioned to help companies like Rural Sourcing grow their operations and connect with customers across the country,” said Indiana Governor Suzanne Crouch. “As the Hoosier economy continues to diversify, we’re seeing unprecedented advancements as companies across all industries develop and apply new technologies and innovations, ensuring that Rural Sourcing will have access to the skilled workforce it needs to grow. We are thrilled to add Rural Sourcing to our growing tech sector and look forward to the company’s partnership as we take northeast Indiana to the next level.”
Rural Sourcing’s officials said they are equally excited for this new foray into the Midwest.
“Fort Wayne was a natural selection for us given the priority Governor Holcomb has placed on a ‘21st Century skilled and ready workforce,’ indicating the state’s commitment to developing and attaining the skill set that we require,” said Monty Hamilton, CEO of Rural Sourcing. “Our exponential growth is due to increasing client demand to provide onshore, domestic technology solutions as organizations shift towards digital and cloud solutions.”
