Electronic Systems, Inc.

Sessoms, Jr. will cut the ribbon to celebrate the expansion on Oct. 7 at 10 a.m. at the new ESI remote operations center, eRoc, at 369 Edwin Drive, Virginia Beach.

The eRoc was recently added to the ESI campus to house the Managed IT Services division. Originally created in 2001, Managed IT Services provides end-to-end technical support and consulting for small- to medium-sized businesses and enterprise-size companies. It has grown exponentially.  The Managed IT Services division and eRoc have added five new positions in the past three months and will add 40 new jobs in the next three years. By recruiting for these high paying and highly skilled positions, ESI is reaffirming its commitment to bolstering the Virginia Beach community by supporting local businesses’ IT needs with local IT support.

The celebration will continue throughout the day with tours of the three-building campus, talks and technology showcases. The day’s activities also include food trucks, live music and a silent auction benefitting the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore.
