SCI to expand in Chesapeake
Standard Calibrations Inc. (SCI) announced Thursday it will expand its engineering operation in Chesapeake, creating 150 jobs.
The global instrumentation and controls company will invest more than $508,500 on the expansion. SCI is seeing increased demand because of its work globally with high-profile data centers, such as those found in social media, software, financial, government, and other related industries.
SCI offerings include valves, instrumentation, test and measurement equipment, calibration/startup services, critical environmental system configuration, engineering design, instrumentation qualification testing, and installation services.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support Standard Calibrations’ new job creation through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP).
“Virginia has been home to SCI since its inception in 1989 due to the vast opportunities from the maritime, Department of Defense, and other governmental agencies in the area, which has historically been the core of our business,” SCI President Floyd Cross said in a statement. “In recent years the focus has been on industrial applications, which includes data centers. SCI is strategically located in Virginia to service customers not only globally, but also domestically, as the U.S. possesses the largest concentration of data centers in the world.”
