LARGO – Vology, one of the nation’s largest managed IT services providers, today (May 2) announced a significant corporate expansion in Pinellas County.
The company hired 80 new staff members in 2016 and expects to add an additional 200 positions over the next two to four years as it continues its steady growth. The company currently employs 310 in Pinellas County.
Vology manages more than 100,000 devices at more than 20,000 nationwide customer sites. The company has been an Inc. 5000-ranked fastest growing private company for 11 consecutive years.
The expansion will allow the company to accommodate its growing number of employees and a network operations center. The project is expected to reach a $3.75 million capital investment and will encompass 60,000 square feet in the Bay Vista Office Park in Largo.
“We’re proud to welcome Gov. Scott today to celebrate our growth and our continued investments in the Tampa Bay community,” said Barry Shevlin, CEO of Vology. “We appreciate the Governor’s support creating a business environment that helps our company grow and we look forward to welcoming even more Floridians to the Vology team in the years to come.”
Pinellas County in partnership with the state of Florida and the city of Largo competed against locations in Texas during the selection process.
“Vology is one of Tampa Bay’s best homegrown technology success stories, and we’re very proud to today announce this expansion and these jobs in Pinellas County,” said Commissioner Janet Long, chair of the Pinellas County Commission. “I want to congratulate Barry and his team on their success and continued growth, and thank them for their leadership in our community.”

We are excited that the company is adding jobs, expanding our local economy and bringing their talent to our community. We hope that their expansion will be a catalyst for other tech companies to expand into Largo’s market. Thank you for selecting Largo and we look forward to your continued success.”

I’d like to thank our partners at the city of Largo and Enterprise Florida, and recognize the Governor’s Office, the city of Largo commission and our Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners for their support of our economic development efforts.”
