U.S. Congressman Hal Rogers (KY-05) announced today that Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) is expanding operations in the Valley Oak Technology Complex in Somerset, Kentucky.

"At a time when unemployment rates are soaring nationwide, I am proud to see quality jobs still growing in Southern and Eastern Kentucky," said Congressman Rogers. "SAIC serves as one of the largest IT contractors in the nation and their decision to establish more jobs in our region shows confidence in our driven workforce."

SAIC is a Fortune 500 company with approximately 70 employees in Kentucky, 55 of which work at the Somerset facility to provide corporate help desk and technical services to customers. The company intends to hire and relocate 20 employees at the Valley Oak Technology Complex within the next year.

“SAIC has been a significant employer in Somerset for more than five years, providing help desk and technical services to a range of federal and commercial customers," said Doug Wagoner, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. “We look forward to expanding our operations in Somerst and strengthening our already positive and productive working relationship with the Somerset business community, including the Southern Kentucky Economic Development (SKED) organization.”

Greg Jones, Executive Director of SKED said the organization will co-host a job fair to help SAIC identify potential new hires. The time and date will be announced soon.

“SAIC is an outstanding corporate citizen – one of the first companies to locate in the Valley Oak Technology Park," said Jones. "This expansion is a testament to SAIC’s commitment to Somerset, the quality of the local workforce and the important role technology plays in today’s global economy.”

In his thirtieth year in office, Congressman Rogers continues to support important initiatives to bring jobs to Kentucky's Fifth Congressional District.
