MACKINAC ISLAND - New Jersey based medical software company GalaxESolutions has opened shop in Detroit and is on a hiring binge.
Company president Jim Bryan says he was attracted to Detroit by its skilled and under-employed workforce. Plus he says city and state incentives have made Detroit competitive with 'off shore' locations.
GalaxESolutions opened shop in downtown Detroit four weeks ago and has already hired 20 people. They have committed to hiring 500 people, mostly software and internet programmers, over the next five years. Bryan says the company is also working with local community colleges on curriculum to teach the necessary skills for those available jobs .
