Senator Jim Alesi Announces the Expansion of Maximus Federal Services in Monroe County

 

Maximus Federal Services will Create More Than 300 New Jobs and Retain Over 150 At-Risk Jobs in the Rochester Region

Senator Jim Alesi today joined Lieutenant Governor Duffy and local leaders to announce that Maximus Federal Services will invest nearly $1.7 million to expand its Medicare Appeals operations in Pittsford – consolidating operations currently located in Pennsylvania and New York into the new Pittsford location.  The investment includes over 300 new jobs and the retention of more than 150 at-risk jobs.

“Companies from around the world recognize the Greater Rochester region as an excellent place to do business,” said Senator Jim Alesi, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business.  “After conducting an extensive, multi-state search for a new office location, Maximus Federal Services chose Pittsford, undoubtedly a true testament to our region’s tremendous academic institutions, manufacturing base, and technical expertise.  I thank Maximus and its leaders for selecting Pittsford as its new home, and I am looking forward to partnering with them in the future as we continue to create jobs and revitalize our local economy, which has been the focus of Governor Cuomo and the Legislature in an effort to make New York business-friendly once again.”

“The expansion of Maximus means more jobs for Monroe County and another big investment by a leading international company choosing to stay and grow in New York,” Governor Cuomo said.  “To compete in the global market we must continue to attract world-renowned businesses like Maximus that can create jobs in the short term and sustainable investment opportunities for the long-term health of our economy.” 

“Maximus is a growing company that will create hundreds of new jobs by capitalizing on the strong demand for its services,” said Lt. Gov. Bob Duffy.  “This project demonstrates how the effective leadership of Governor Cuomo is improving New York’s ability to attract big companies to invest and create jobs in New York.”

Maximus is a business leader in health and human services, providing administration support to programs such as Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Medicare, employment services, education and related consulting offerings.  Maxumus’ expansion is expected to create and retain nearly $120 million in payroll wages, contributing to the local economic growth.
