AMSEC had been engaged in a two-year search to identify a new location in the Hampton Roads area for its headquarters. AMSEC signed a 10-year lease agreement with the Olympia Development Corp. for the property located at 5701 Cleveland St. AMSEC will occupy approximately half of the six-story, 126,000 square foot building adjacent to Interstate 264. AMSEC is relocating about 300 employees from its Guardian Lane location in Virginia Beach to the newly renamed "AMSEC Center." AMSEC expects to be operating from the new headquarters by late November 2012.
"Change is exciting," said Harris Leonard, HII vice president and president of AMSEC operations. "We believe this move will make us more effective in serving our customer as well as providing easier access to our facility."
