Firm Announces Investment To Expand Existing Operation
May 28, 2019

Ozmo, a technology company that builds software products for mobile operations and their customers, has announced that the firm will invest over $200,000 to expand its existing operation in Montgomery County. According to the announcement, the project will position the company to meet increasing demand for its products from top mobile operations and device manufacturers from around the world.

With a customer base including Verizon and TELUS, Ozmo helps mobile operators and their consumers solve any device, application, or software issue quickly and effectively. Over 75,000 contact center agents use the company’s support platform, which scales to assist mobile operators and device manufacturers of all sizes. The Ozmo platform assists in over 25 million support interactions each year.

“Ozmo is doubling down on its commitment to growing in downtown Blacksburg,” said CEO of Ozmo David Catalano. “Our proximity to Virginia Tech provides us a unique advantage of access to top talent, while also being able to offer exceptional quality of life for our employees. We look forward to growing locally in order to support the increasing demand for our products worldwide.”

“Since its arrival in Montgomery County just three years ago, Ozmo has grown from a small startup to a thriving company,” noted Governor Northam in response to the announcement. “The New River Valley’s impressive cluster of technology businesses continues to grow thanks to the region’s renowned educational institutions that will supply a tech talent pipeline for years to come. The Commonwealth is proud to support Ozmo’s job creation efforts and we thank the company for choosing to expand and reinvest in here in Virginia.”

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Montgomery County to secure the project for Virginia. VEDP will support Ozmo’s job creation through the state-funded Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP). VJIP provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs or experiencing technological change in order to support employee training activities.

Ozmo is currently participating in VEDP’s award-winning Virginia Leaders in Export Trade (VALET) Program. VALET is an application-based, two-year global export acceleration program that provides participating companies with assistance from a team of experienced international service providers to help meet their export goals.
