Professional Solutions Delivered, also known as ProSoDel, will expand its operations in Caroline, county officials announced Tuesday.
ProSoDel, an information technology, logistics, and engineering business that provides services to the military and other clients, will lease another 1,200 square feet in the Ladysmith Business Park and add 10-14 employees, officials said. The expansion will double the company’s employment in Caroline.
The company moved its corporate headquarters to Caroline in 2012. It leases part of the Ladysmith Professional Building and other space in the business park.
“ProSoDel is a premiere contractor for a wide array of vital services to government and industry,” said Supervisor Floyd Thomas, chairman of the Board of Supervisors, in a news release issued by county officials. “It is gratifying that an important business like ProSoDel would choose Caroline County for their location to manage and fulfill multi-million dollar contracts.”
The development came less than a week after county officials announced that Truland Systems Corp., headquartered in Reston, will expand into Caroline.
ProSoDel provides services to numerous SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic and Marine Corps Systems Command programs, the company said in a separate news release. It supports SPAWAR and the Marine Corps with data mining, data migration, database development and management, configuration management, data and knowledge management, as well as core capabilities consisting of research, program management and analysis, testing and evaluation, and training support.
The company has clients in federal, state and local governments as well as the private sector.
The Ladysmith Integration Facility eventually will employ 10-14 professionals in direct support of ProSoDel’s Seaport-e Prime contract, valued at $20 Million over three years.
Professional Solutions Delivered is owned and operated by Ken Stroud, a retired Marine Corps logistics officer.
He chose to locate in the Caroline Information Technology Corridor because of the qualified workforce and so his employees could avoid congested commuter traffic in Northern Virginia, he said.
With cloud computing technologies, “we can virtually co-locate with our clients just as if we were in the same room,” said Stroud. “This allows us to offer a more competitive price to our customers,” he added.
The company is planning to hold an open house event in the near future.
