Charon Technologies to Expand Research and Development in Logan
SALT LAKE CITY — Charon Technologies and the Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) today announced that the engineering company, known for a passion for solving tough problems in a variety of disciplines, will expand in Logan, Utah creating 20 jobs in electrical engineering and computer science.
“EDCUtah is delighted to have a pioneering company in the world of engineering like Charon Technologies expand into Utah,” said Michael Flynn, Chief Operating Officer at EDCUtah. “Charon Technologies will provide incredible opportunities to our highly-trained workforce. We offer our congratulations and look forward to their future progress here in the state.”
Charon Technologies was founded in 2012, in northern Virginia. The company designs software defined radios and signal processing platforms, as well as communications systems, and RF security products. Charon Technologies strives to discover creative ways to solve complex problems, and is dedicated to the successful development of high-quality products.
Arizona, Texas, California, and Colorado were all originally considered for their expansion. However, after visiting and meeting with EDCUtah, Charon Technologies focused on Utah as the spot for their expansion. Their decision drivers were centered upon access to talent and new ideas in their workforce recruitment. The company plans to work closely with the excellent research universities and applied technology colleges in the state. Charon chose Logan, Utah for their new location as it aligns closely with their engineering talent pool demographic.
“We had more or less tapped out the talent pool in DC for the work we do, and needed a new area with fresh faces and talent,” said Jared Jensen, the Western Division Director for Charon Technologies, “In addition, we like to offer our employees great work/life balance options. Utah perfectly aligned with our aims to provide our employees with a superior quality lifestyle.”
Nadia Letey with CBRE aided EDCUtah and Charon Technologies in their initial real estate search along the Wasatch Front and ultimately provided the connection to Interstate Commercial Properties who helped identify an ideal location in Logan.
Charon Technologies has chosen a location within minutes of Utah State University, and they also look forward to building relationships with other universities throughout Utah. Their expansion will create up to 20 electrical engineering and computer science jobs in the Logan, Utah area.
“The hardest part about moving a company to a new location is that you just don't know who is who and where to go to find specified information,” said Jensen, “EDCUtah really helped with that by putting us in touch with everyone from commercial real estate brokers to recruiters and heads of universities. That's the most valuable thing we could ask for.”
