USA Firmware Grows in Northeast Ohio

Company expanding their engineering, sales and marketing teams

USA Firmware, a leader in the embedded software and Internet of Things (IoT) design and consulting services, has announced plans to expand their operations by adding 28 new positions to their workforce. The company received a grant from JobsOhio, in collaboration with Team NEO, which will allow USA Firmware to provide for their workforce expansion.

USA Firmware plans to build out their engineering, sales and marketing teams to expand existing products and services on a national basis. Thanks to a pool of skilled talent and a supportive university system to help source talent, the company chose to expand in Northeast Ohio versus out of state options.  

“USA Firmware was formed on the ingenuity, entrepreneurship and technical talent found here in Northeast Ohio,” said Bob Scaccia, president of USA Firmware. “We are committed to this region as we expand our services to help organizations take advantage of the mass adoption of connected devices in both consumer and industrial markets.

A team consisting of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, Team NEO and JobsOhio collaborated to provide the resources needed to advance the project.

“USA Firmware’s commitment to remain and expand is a testament to Northeast Ohio’s strength in embracing smart manufacturing and the industrial internet of things,” said Team NEO CEO Bill Koehler. “Along with JobsOhio and our local partners, we look forward to continuing to strengthen the relationship with USA Firmware’s innovation team.”
