Connie Harvey, an ACS group president, noted:
ACS has been providing services to businesses and governments around
the world from Lexington for more then a decade, growing to become one of the largest private employers. When deciding where to expand we work with our clients to ensure their needs can be met, there is a talented labor pool and a facility to allow us to expand now and accommodate future growth. We had a short timeframe to meet our clients’ schedule and appreciate the support we received from Mayor Newberry and Commerce Lexington in helping us meet those aggressive deadlines.
