ATLANTA, Ga., March 7, 2018 – Envistacom today announced that it captured record revenue in 2017, nearly doubling revenue year over year, with the company positioned to exceed more than 2000 percent growth in revenue since its founding in 2011.
A core driver of the Georgia-based defense contractor’s exponential growth is the Envistacom Innovation Center, which offers strategic support as an innovation and rapid-prototyping facility to develop best possible solutions for customers across the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and global intelligence community. Less than six months following the facility’s grand opening in October 2017, Envistacom is already expanding its research and innovation footprint by more than 50 percent and forming the Envistacom Innovation Group in response to customer demand.
“Following a record year, Envistacom is building on significant contract vehicle and task order award momentum with a focus on innovation across core capabilities, including communications,” said Alyssa Carson, President, and Founder, Envistacom. “With a rapidly growing global network of experts and an expanding remit with the U.S. DoD, we remain steadfast in our mission to equip America’s warfighters with the technology and tools necessary to help make the world a safer place.”
