“Nexton’s location and modern conveniences are ideal for Akima’s growing Charleston-region employee base," said Zach Conover, General Manager of Akima subsidiaries.

Today, federal contractor Akima announced the addition of its South Carolina location at The Offices at Nexton in Summerville.

Herndon, Virginia-based defense contractor, Akima, is currently leasing a 2,500 square-foot office space located at 201 Sigma Drive to better serve its regional contracts with the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic which designs, acquires, engineers and sustains the systems, sensor connections, cyber network infrastructures and knowledge management services for the U.S. Navy and other military agencies. The company has more than 7,500 employees worldwide and has been supporting work in the Charleston area for more than a decade.

“We are excited to continue our strong legacy of providing expert engineering and technology solutions for the U.S. Navy and NIWC,” said Zach Conover, General Manager of Akima subsidiaries, Truestone, Lynxnet, and Aperture. “Nexton’s location and modern conveniences are ideal for Akima’s growing Charleston-region employee base.”

This class-A office building has visibility from I-26, is linked to 10 miles of trails and an easy walk to 22 shops and restaurants. “The region’s position as a large-scale manufacturing and transportation hub makes Nexton a natural fit for national and international contractors serving multiple industries,” said Brent Gibadlo, Vice President of development at Nexton.

Akima, ranked #38 on Washington Technology’s 2019 Top 100 list of government contractors, delivers agile solutions to the federal government in the core areas of aviation, construction, facilities and logistics, IT and mission support, protective services and detention management, and systems engineering.
