A Grand Rapids-based IT consulting firm is making a multi-million dollar investment in a new headquarters and creating dozens of high-tech jobs.

Business is good for Grand Rapids’ ITS Partners with the development of new technologies and security threats. So good, that it will more than double its workforce over the next three years from 56 locally to 124.

The information technology consulting firm has been around for 30 years, but lately its increase in sales has produced a need for not only more talent but more space.

ITS Partners is investing $2.5 million towards a new headquarters. That location has yet to be determined but it will be in Kent County.

Regional nonprofit economic development organization, The Right Place, along with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation are supporting the expansion with the MEDC is approving a $476,000 Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant.
