A Michigan-based information technology company expected to hire 190 over the next four years is on its way to Florida’s Space Coast, the governor’s office announced Friday.
BlueWare Inc., a software company, is relocating to Melbourne, where it will be developing and writing software, document scanning and developing in the areas of robotics, nanotechnology and genomics, as they apply to a patient’s medical records.
“BlueWare’s choice to move to Florida is a testament to the strength of our business climate and the result of a common vision for economic growth by local, regional, business and government partners,” Scott said in a written statement. “Today’s announcement is a great win for the Space Coast, as well as for the entire state.”
BlueWare has said it expects to hire 190, with an average wage of $69,000, over four years, while investing more than $1 million for property and equipment.
The company was awarded $760,000 through a State of Florida Qualified Target Industry Tax Refund and $550,000 in a Quick Action Closing Fund incentive to offset the costs of location, employee training, and infrastructure.
