HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – A Fortune 1000 IT provider is moving its corporate headquarters from Calabasas, California to Henrico County, Governor Ralph Northam announced Monday.

ASGN Incorporated, an IT and professional service provider, will invest a total of $12.4 million, including $5 million in its new headquarters facility, located at 4400 Cox Road in Henrico, and create 121 new jobs in the area.

The company will also invest $7.4 million to expand its operations in Virginia, adding 147 new jobs in the City of Virginia Beach, 74 new jobs in the City of Roanoke, and 358 additional jobs in other communities in the Commonwealth.

“The creation of 700 new jobs is critical as we work to rebuild and strengthen our economy from the impacts of COVID-19,” said Governor Northam. “These projects are evidence that our business climate, infrastructure, and talent pipeline are strong and that Virginia is still the best state for business. We are thrilled that ASGN has decided to both relocate and grow its operations here and we thank the company for its commitment to supporting our communities, especially during these challenging times.”

ASGN is ranked 698th on the Fortune 1000 list.

The company helps clients develop, implement, and operate critical IT and business solutions through its integrated offering of professional staffing and IT solutions, according to a press release from the Governor’s Office.

ASGN subsidiary Apex Systems, LLC was founded in Richmond in 1995 and currently employees approximately 4,000 Virginians.

“With our two largest divisions based in the Commonwealth, it just made sense to have our headquarters in Henrico County,” said Ted Hanson, CEO and President of ASGN Incorporated. “This move allows us to remain close to our key customers and brands. Virginia’s strong pipeline of information technology talent for both the commercial and government sectors make it an ideal place for us to have our headquarters and continue to grow.”
