Chickasaw Nation announces $28.9 million expansion of engineering firm

The Chickasaw Nation is investing $28.9 million in an expansion of one of its businesses.

Corvid Technologies, which Chickasaw Nation Industries purchased in 2015, will grow its headquarters in Mooresville, North Carolina. The firm is receiving a state grant as part of the project.

“North Carolina is the perfect choice for Corvid, thanks to our world-class universities, major military installations, and highly skilled workers,” Gov. Roy Cooper (D) said in a press release. “I’m pleased Corvid decided to keep growing right here by bringing more good-paying engineering jobs and its headquarters to Mooresville.”

In addition to North Carolina, Corvid maintains offices in Virginia, Alabama, California and Hawaii. It currently does not have a presence in Oklahoma, where the Chickasaw Nation is based.

The firm provides engineering and technical services to a wide variety of clients, including federal defense and military agencies. Due to its association with Chickasaw Nation Industries, it mains 8(a) status as a Small Disadvantaged Business for federal contracting.

Corvid employs 145 people, The Charlotte Business Journal reported. The expansion will bring another 367 jobs to the Mooresville area, the firm said.
