A technology services firm owned by women plans to bring nearly 500 jobs to Fulton County.

Milletech Systems Inc. is known for emerging technology and expertise in business development. The firm plans to provide internships and hire graduates from more than 100 Georgia colleges to fill cloud technology positions, according to a statement from Gov. Brian Kemp’s office.

Before the move to Georgia, Milletech used offshore employees to provide services.

The Georgia Department of Community Affairs helped the firm in moving operations to one of the state’s 260 Federal Qualified Opportunity Zones, the statement said. The opportunity zone makes the business eligible for tax breaks.

Milletech will be located at 1 Baltimore Place N.W., Atlanta near Emory University Hospital Midtown.

“Milletech’s decision to move their operations to Georgia is a testament to our state’s top-notch college and university systems and training programs,” Kemp said. “I am confident that Milletech will be pleased with their decision to expand and invest in Georgia along with the skilled talent we have right here in the Peach State.”

The firm is a member of the Georgia Mentor-Protégé Connection, which is a part of the Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council, an advocacy organization for small businesses and diversity.

Stacey Key, president and CEO of GMSDC said the firm will add to Atlanta technology and innovation. “We applaud Milletech’s decision to collaborate with our university system and (historically black colleges and universities), as it will create a more diverse talent pipeline and foster economic growth in our minority communities,” she said.
