San Antonio Expansion a Necessary Step in RII’s Strategic Growth Plan
Research Innovations Inc. (RII), a provider of national security technology solutions, recently expanded its operations to customers in Texas with the opening of a new office in San Antonio. RII has additional offices in Alexandria, VA and Melbourne, FL, as well as employees working remotely across the country, abroad and embedded with customers in all Combatant Commands.
Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for RII’s technical and operational solutions enabled continued rapid growth in 2020 and 2021, driving the award of numerous new contracts and the hiring of more than 130 new employees. RII again earned a spot on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 in 2020, marking the company’s third consecutive year on the list of fastest-growing technology companies in North America.
“The decision to expand RII’s presence into the San Antonio area was a necessary step in the company’s strategic growth plan,” said Rich Briggs, founder and CTO of RII. “We have a strong focus on customer success, and we’re committed to our customers in the broader information and cyber operations space, many of which are located in or near San Antonio. We want to better serve those customers and leverage the technology talent pool in the area.”
The new 10,000-square-foot office located at Callaghan and I-10 makes RII more accessible for customers in San Antonio. In addition, having an office in San Antonio allows RII to recruit from local universities.
