IT company expects to add 25 jobs
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 18, 2014) — Gov. Steve Beshear and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer today announced that V-Soft Consulting Group Inc. plans to expand its company headquarters in Jefferson County.
V-Soft, a minority, woman-owned business solutions group, plans to create up to 25 new jobs and invest more than $200,000 into the project.
V-soft is looking to expand its headquarters to increase its sales force and have a centralized location for additional technical personnel. With the growth of cloud-based technologies, the company says the Louisville facility on Stanley Gault Parkway can serve clients outside the state.
“This is a huge opportunity for V-Soft Consulting and its future business partners, but it’s an even bigger prospect for the community,” said V-Soft President Purna Veer. “We are looking forward to hiring more of Kentucky’s finest business professionals as well as having more opportunities to give back to our community.”
Founded in 1997, V-Soft is an IT staffing and IT business solutions firm with employees across the U.S. and India. The company focuses on IT professional staffing and recruitment, custom application development and software implementations. V-Soft Consulting currently employs 55 people in Kentucky.
To encourage the investment and job growth in Louisville, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives of up to $200,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.
