COLUMBIA, S.C. – Greenville-based Servosity Inc., a developer and provider of data backup and disaster recovery solutions to managed service providers and IT resellers, today announced plans to expand its operations in Greenville County. The company expects to generate 30 new jobs over the next 12 to 18 months.
According to Damien Stevens, CEO of Servosity, the company will expand its support teams and infrastructure to meet the increasing needs of a growing customer base.
“The planned addition of this talent adds to Servosity’s ability to be a single-source provider of backup and disaster recovery solutions for our growing customer base across North America, and we thank our customers and industry partners for their commitment and confidence,” Stevens said. “We also greatly appreciate the assistance of the Greenville Area Development Corporation (GADC), NEXT, the Department of Commerce, city of Greenville and all the partners who collaborated to help make today’s growth announcement a reality.” The company has relocated its headquarters to occupy approximately 3,200 square feet in the NEXT Innovation Center, located at 411 University Ridge in Greenville.
“It’s always exciting to see one of South Carolina’s home-grown, existing businesses increase its footprint here. We celebrate Servosity’s decision to expand and create 30 new high-paying jobs in Greenville. Announcements like this one are a great indication that the Palmetto State is the right place to do business,” said Gov. Nikki Haley.
“South Carolina was recently recognized as a top state for doing business in large part because of our workforce talent and worker training and development programs. When a high-tech company, like Servosity, chooses to expand here, it shows that our state’s workforce along with our business-friendly environment help companies prosper and create new jobs for South Carolinians,” said Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt.
Servosity’s intuitive backup and disaster recovery solutions allow its customers to manage and monitor backup and disaster recovery operations 24/7/365. As a result, managed service providers (MSPs) and IT resellers can reduce recovery time objectives and ensure vital continuity of business operations if disaster strikes in as little as 15 minutes. Whether a simple computer crash or complete disaster, Servosity presents its solutions as the easiest way to eliminate downtime, enhancing risk management and improving profitability.
“Servosity is a great example of a company combining its highly refined technology with the Upstate’s exceptional talent base to expand their business,” said H.G. “Butch” Kirven, a director of the GADC and chairman of Greenville County Council. “The company has found a formula for success keyed on research and innovation. This is a case study of our region’s collaborative approach to expanding its knowledge economy, and this is a great example of the opportunities to be found in Greenville County and South Carolina.”
“This is a tremendous day for Greenville. Servosity has been a valued member of our growing community of knowledge-based companies since the early days of NEXT and we look forward to supporting their continued growth and success here for many years to come,” said John Moore, executive vice president at the Greenville Chamber and co-founder of NEXT.
The company intends to begin hiring immediately. Positions to be filled include software developers, software engineers, system engineers, support engineers and account managers. For more information, or to apply, visit them online at www.servosity.com/careers.
