AMHERST, Va. (WDBJ7) Amherst County's economic development director Victoria Hanson says 22 full-time, "high-wage" jobs will be created when a technology firm moves to Amherst County this summer.

Integrated Technology Group (ITG), a provider of commercial technology solutions to the Central and Southwestern Virginia regions, is moving into a building owned by the Economic Development Authority of Amherst County (EDA) in the Amelon Commerce Center.

“Gaining a tech company like ITG is a great win for Amherst County. The partnership between the EDA and ITG will provide jobs and economic growth for Amherst for years to come,” said Calvin Kennon, EDA Chairman, in a release sent to WDBJ7 Thursday.

The 6,314 square foot building has been empty for several years and was formerly leased to CMC Rebar.

“The EDA has been extremely accommodating, and the ITG team could not be more excited to begin this relationship with the businesses of Amherst county as well as invest in the Amherst community,” Paul Meadows, ITG President/CEO, said in a news release. “Being involved in our community is important to us, and we look forward to helping the people of Amherst reach their full potential.”

According to Integrated Technology Group, ITG is a managed services provider that delivers enterprise-quality technology products and services to small/mid-size businesses. Their five core competencies include IT products and services, IP telephony, security and access control, building automation and structured cabling.
