Wireless communications company SR Technologies has selected Sunrise for its new headquarters, and will create 40 new jobs and retain 161 positions, the company announced Wednesday.
The company has an office in Davie but was considering other potential locations for its headquarters including Virginia; Washington, D.C.; and Maryland, according to Enterprise Florida and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, which work with companies on expansion and relocation.
SR Technologies, part of SRT Group, was offered state and local incentives of $280,000 for the confirmed creation of 40 jobs, according to the Alliance.
The company will occupy more than 77,000 square feet of office space at the Sawgrass Technology Park, expanding its footprint by 40,000 square feet in the new location. It is making an investment of more than $1 million, according to a news release from the state.
The company, which specializes in design, engineering, and research and development for wireless communications, said a key reason it chose Sunrise was access to software companies in the area.
“The location provides us with the room we needed to grow our company,” said Rick Lund, chairman and founder of SR Technologies.
