Governor Scott and Attorney General Bondi Announce ICTC Expansion in Brooksville

ICTC builds new manufacturing facility that creates 40 new jobs and a capital investment of $3.1 million.

Governor Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi today announced the expansion of Interconnect Cables (ICTC) at Brooksville – Tampa Bay Regional Airport. ICTC’s new 44,300 sq ft. facility will manufacture electronic assemblies and box builds for clients around the world. The expansion will add 40 new jobs with a capital investment of $3.1 million.

Governor Scott said, “Interconnect’s decision to expand their presence at Brooksville – Tampa Bay Regional Airport and create 40 jobs proves why Florida is becoming a top destination for manufacturers to expand and grow. We have worked hard to eliminate the sales tax on manufacturing equipment. With more than 365,000 private-sector jobs created since December 2010, Florida is the best place for business.”

“ICTC’s decision to expand in Florida is a testament to the fact that our great state truly is the best place to live, work, and raise a family,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi.

ICTC has evolved from a local cable assembly house to a worldwide provider of electronic manufacturing solutions since its founding in 1988. Their time testing manufacturing capabilities range from prototyping, to complete turnkey, contract manufacturing in over a dozen industries.

“We have opened businesses in many countries, and the coordination and support of the Brooksville – Tampa Bay Regional Airport, Hernando County and the Florida Governor’s office have been a model for how all public servants should work together to expand private sector opportunities and create jobs in a community,” said Sareet Majumdar, CEO of ICTC.

Florida has remained at the forefront of information technology innovation since the birth of the IBM PC in Boca Raton. The state’s IT strengths include diverse sectors such as digital media, modeling, simulation & training, photonics/optics and mobile technologies. Some 25,000 information technology companies employ nearly 245,000 people in Florida.

“The expansion of ICTC’s manufacturing facility greatly benefits Florida’s proactive IT industry,” said President and CEO of Enterprise Florida, Gray Swoope. “Not only is this another addition to Florida’s IT industry, but this expansion adds to the state’s extensive manufacturing sector. Florida’s workforce and tax benefits will help ICTC succeed and I look forward to their future accomplishments in our state.”

This project was made as a result of the strong partnership between Enterprise Florida and Hernando County Office of Business Development.

Dave Russell, Chairman of the Hernando County Board of County Commissioners said, “In this competitive market we realize ICTC had choices of places to do business and are proud they have chosen to expand and invest in Hernando County. We look forward to continuing to create opportunities for ICTC and other manufacturers to thrive in our community.”
