9/23/2015 – American Technology Services was drawn into the startup tech fold. The Fairfax, Va.-based IT services firm has been around since 1994, but just opened an office in Baltimore in the high-rise at 250 W. Pratt St.
CEO Jeff Chandler said the company mainly works with government contractors and foundations. Baltimore represented a chance to connect with new clients in distribution and light manufacturing, as well as tap into an attractive workforce.
When he was scouting locations with a commercial real estate broker, Chandler said he looked at Canton, as well as suburban locations like Towson and Reistertown.
Ultimately, the firm settled on a location downtown because of its proximity to transportation like the interstates and MARC train.
“We need to be able to get to prospective clients easily,” Chandler said.
For all of the plaudits and seemingly natural fits, however, the city’s central business district is something of a new frontier for tech startups.
