New Headquarters will support growth of up to 80 employees and outfitted to conduct high-quality electronic system production, integration and systems testing.
In June 2017, officials from Federal, State and Local government joined President & CEO Bob Wise and Chief Technology Officer Kirk Griffin to celebrate WGS Systems’ ten years of operations and to officially open the doors to the new WGS Systems Corporate Headquarters.
Over one hundred industry partners, clients, and representatives from various government agencies were in attendance. The celebration marked the culmination of ten years of success, which has propelled WGS Systems to grow and expand.
“It has been a great honor to serve the United States Government at all levels, as well as U.S. allies throughout the world since 2007. We here at WGS Systems are as passionate about the mission now as we were on day one, and I know everyone here looks forward to the challenges that lay ahead in the next ten years and beyond,” remarked Wise.
At the June celebration, Benjamin Wu, Deputy Secretary of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development said, “WGS Systems is an excellent example of a leading technology and engineering provider, and I am proud to stand with you here today. Thank you for doing what you do and basing your operations here in Maryland.”
In recent years, WGS Systems has earned praise from federal partners for its successful work serving the U.S. Park Police in its mission to protect the 58th Presidential Inauguration. Similarly, WGS Systems had a notable presence at the 2017 Paris Air Show, traveling with the Maryland Delegation and accompanying Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.
WGS Systems’ expanded facilities include a fully equipped training facility, a quality control center, and numerous systems analysis capabilities.
“Our new facilities enable the team to take on some of the most complex engineering challenges in the field today. By investing in these new capabilities, WGS Systems engineers, as prescribed by our business model, have repeatedly demonstrated that they can model solutions here at HQ in days and weeks and deploy them to any place in the world. It’s a capacity that enables us to serve our partners better, faster, and more efficiently than other firms,” noted Griffin.
