A Hagerstown-area computer consulting firm has been growing at such a fast clip that the company is switching from renting space to building a $2 million office and lab building, the company's president said Wednesday.
Since NETCONN Solutions opened seven years ago, its employment rolls have grown an average of 86 percent a year and continue to grow, President Judy York said.
The company has 117 employees and York expects to add approximately 100 more in the next two years.
Ninety percent of the company's employees are engineers, who earn an average of $60,000 to $75,000 a year, York said.
The company is receiving $65,000 in state and county grants, according to the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission.
The grant money is a benefit, although York said the company would have expanded without the financial assistance.
Forty-five to 50 of NETCONN's employees work in the Hagerstown area, York said.
