SAIC breaks ground on new SC platform innovation center
Science Applications International Corp. of Reston, VA announced on May 11 that it is constructing a new platform integration and engineering center in Berkeley County, South Carolina. Slated to be open later this year, the new Platform Innovation Center will be an expansion of SAIC’s operations in the Charleston region and will add approximately 200 jobs over the next five years, further supporting economic growth.
“SAIC has a long legacy of doing business in South Carolina and this investment underscores our long-term commitment to the state,” SAIC CEO Tony Moraco said. “We are excited about the new opportunities this state-of-the-art facility will provide and to better enable us to deliver mission critical solutions to our customers. We appreciate the strong support from Governor Henry McMaster, the City of Hanahan, Berkeley County, and the Charleston Regional Development Alliance to bring this important resource to the state.”
This investment is directly tied to the expansion of the company’s work involving systems engineering, ground tactical vehicles, logistics, and full life-cycle services and solutions. It is a critical component of SAIC’s long-term strategy.
SAIC will lease the facility from West-Signal Capital in connection with the development of a 340,000 square foot build-to-suit facility within the North Pointe Industrial Park.
