Amentum Services, Inc., a company that provides engineering, project management, and advanced solutions and services to the federal government, will move its headquarters to Chantilly from Germantown, Maryland.
Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced the move Monday morning, saying that Amentum will invest $495,000 to relocate and create 157 jobs. It will consolidate with PAE Inc., another government services contractor it acquired in 2022.
The operations of Amentum Services and PAE will be consolidated at Amentum’s office at 48000 Westfields Boulevard in Chantilly.
“The relocation of our company headquarters to Chantilly, Virginia, grants more convenient access not only for our local employees, customers, and partners, but also for everyone in our extended team who are doing business in the Washington, DC area,” said Amentum CEO John Heller, in a news release.
“We look forward to strengthening our connections with and expanding our business in the Northern Virginia area and establishing our new headquarters as the ideal centralized location for our global organization,” Heller said.
“I want to thank and congratulate Amentum for choosing Fairfax County for its home base,” said Fairfax County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jeffrey C. McKay, in the news release. “Our long-term investment into making Fairfax County the top choice to locate a global business continues to bear fruit, and I am thrilled that Amentum has chosen to take advantage of what we offer.”
Youngkin said Amentum joins a “diversified ecosystem of more than 800 corporate headquarters across a broad cross-section of industries,” in Virginia.
Earlier this month, the U.S. Army awarded Amentum a remote maintenance and distribution center contract worth up to $487 million. The U.S. Air Force Air Combat Command awarded PAE a $136 million contract in August.
Amentum Services has more than 44,000 employees in 85 countries. It has locations in Virginia in Alexandria, Arlington, Chantilly, Dahlgren, Falls Church, Fredericksburg, and Norfolk.
