A New York City-based tech firm will relocate to Port Washington, bringing 163 existing jobs and creating 255 more.
Lured by an economic-development incentives package from the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency, Agilant Solutions Inc. – formerly known as ASI System Integration Inc. – plans to move its national headquarters from Manhattan to a 72,500-square-foot Seaview Boulevard warehouse and office building owned by Port Washington-based cosmetics company Ivy Enterprises.
In addition to relocating and/or creating those 410-plus “high-paying” jobs, Agilant – a cloud-integration specialist, among other IT-related services – plans to spend $2.6 million on renovations that include new offices spaces, a technology lab, a call center, a help desk and warehouse space, according to a statement from Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano’s office.
The company anticipates moving into the Port Washington building by January, marking “a huge coup for Nassau County,” according to Mangano.
“My economic-development team deserves kudos for not just helping to keep Agilant in New York State, but bringing what ultimately will be more than 400 high-paying jobs to Nassau County,” the county executive said in a statement.
The 163 jobs on site in January will include transfers from Agilant’s NYC and New Hyde Park offices. According to the terms of the undisclosed incentives package, Aligant will create another 255 permanent jobs at the site within five years – part of $217.3 million in economic benefits projected by the county to stem from the IDA deal.
“This project allows a national leader in technology consulting to relocate and expand in Nassau County,” noted Nassau IDA Executive Director Joseph Kearny, “thereby benefiting the economy of the county by creating new jobs and private-sector spending.”
