Rome, NY (WIBX) - A local information security company is about to move into a brand new, 10-million dollar state of the art facility. Earlier today, Assured Information Security, located at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park, opened its doors to show off the new building.

President and CEO Charles Green says he is anticipating adding 100+ high paying jobs. "I believe that we can take our employee base at this building to somewhere around 225." adding, "I'm pretty anxious to getting us in here, the facilities we're in now are three buildings around the park and we're looking forward to getting everyone together".

The average salary at A.I.S. is just over $70,000 dollars a year. U.S. Representative Richard Hanna and U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, along with other local officials toured the facility Friday afternoon.

Hanna is hoping for more high-paying jobs to come to our area in the immediate future. "This is the future of employment in this community. It's high-tech, its good pay and its a growing company, it's the cutting edge for everything that is about security in this country", Hanna said while touring the facility.

Representative Hanna tells WIBX that he's hoping to bring Peter King to the Griffiss Business and Technology Park in the near future, King is the current Chairman of the House's Committee for Homeland Security.
